Sous Le Vent " In the Wind "

This is not a floral fragrance . Guerlain Sous Le Vent was created by Jaques Guerlain himself and released in 1933 . Re-released as a limited edition in 2006 , it rests in a blocky art deco bottle of large quantity and has been on my lemming list for almost a year . ( Split , anyone ? )
Anyway , I am counting on Jason to warn me if the last bottle is about to disappear off the shelves of the Bergdorf boutique . My decant from Nancy is lasting , but the lemming just won't go away .
Putting this fragrance on is like resting my head on my boyfriend's shoulder . He's wearing a leather jacket and some herbal , peppery basil cologne from the 40's...the top is down on his convertible , the trees are swishing by as the suns dips below the horizon . We park in the shade of one of those grand old maple trees...he puts the converible top up and turns off the car....meow...

Sous Le Vent features notes of basil, bergamot, lavender, tarragon, carnation, oakmoss, iris, woods, patchouli.
