SOTD: La Parisienne

Today I am going with the springy La Parisienne, there is a delightful apple blossom quality to this that I have never smelled in any other fragrance. It is also a wonderful aldehydic scent which uses the note i nsilvery fluttery way, that I can only think of as chimingly bright. I am kind've amazed with the comeback of aldehydes that this one doesn't get much mention. It also has a muguet heart that leads to a sensual musky dry down. There is something very turn of the century to me about this fragrance. Sadly I just googled the producer and Holzman & Stephanie seems to gone.

That might have been a bad idea on my part, the person who sell's this, and I think the only purveyor, well the site is completely down, which is a really bad sign, because the creator the last few years has had health issues. I really hope she is well.
