Perfume, this summer's latest crop...

Despite the lack of frequent posts this summer and my complaints to the contrary, there has been abundant spoil lately. Pictured on the tray, from left to right: 1962 OCCUR! by Avon, Secret d' Suzanne by Suzanne, Casaque by Jean d'Albret, Directoire by Charles of Ritz and Dorothy Gray's White Lilac. Many a scalding day has wiled away this season, whilst I've retreated into cool shadowy chambers to perfume the air around me and contemplate the spirits held within these bottles. I wouldn't want to restrain your imaginings of any of the perfumes, as each one deserves it's own spotlight. Casaque is possibly the best known of the set, of course after Avon's Occur!, which is one of Avon's best selling scents ever and some say Avon's last great scent. Reviews will follow along shortly for these, even if short- and yes, I've finally mailed off my last winner's package! So, how is your summer hunt for vintage treasure going?
