Vintage perfume has always freaked me out.
What if I can't find it?
What if I find it, but the juice has turned?
What if I find it, and love it, but can never find it again?
Well, remember my day at the farm with Dad? After gathering all sorts of smellie treasures there, we went to an antique store in town that carries a specialty line of soap made from goat's milk and shea butter.
Dad knew that I would appreciate the variety of aromas in the form of bar soap, lotions, shower gel and balms.
While I was lost in soap sniffing, Dad was doing his own wandering through this maze of a store, and we met periodically to assure each other that we were about ready to go. Still, we kept meandering.
Then, it found me.

After a quick sniff, it was clear that the Corday perfumes were in great shape. Evening in Paris had never been opened, so I bought it unsniffed and sealed, fascinated by the packaging and the cologne stick inside.
Playing it all cool - like it didn't matter to me one way or the other - I negotiated a great price for buying both.
It was all I could do to keep from twirling.
We're looking forward to going again.
