May 2010 Challenge Memories #19

USA view map

This brings back a fun and loving memory. I met my future wife Anne in late November of 1974 when she was on holiday from Ireland visiting her brother, who was my best friend. She went back in January. I sent her a Valentine gift of L'Air Du Temps by Nina Ricci. Two of my pals went with me to a department store and the three of us sampled perfumes on our wrists checking out the various fragrances. We picked this perfume and it has been Anne's favorite ever since. The doves on this one are made of plastic. The ones on the original that I sent to Anne was made of LALIQUE crystal.

Best if viewed at original size.

Truly romantic and it is not easy to choose for a girl or a woman a fragrance, but you did so well! V.

Brings back memories for me too - I used to wear this when I was younger and have been tempted
to buy some again.
