Chanel No. 19

2015-03-21 14.49.08 (2)

Chanel No. 19 in the vintage eau de parfum form  (Chanel 1970) is pungent, chiseled, clear and green.  It’s supremely elegant, fresh and romantic.  Chanel No.19 is powerful but gentle.  It’s wild and free but delicate.

With my chemistry I detect particularly strong notes of neroli, greens, iris and vetiver.  Chanel No. 19 is a very likeable scent, but it needs to get acquainted with you first.  If you’ve never tried it, take a moment to let it interact with your chemistry.

Top notes: neroli, bergamot, and green notes.  Middle notes: narcissus, lily-of-the-valley, rose and iris.  Base notes: vetiver, sandalwood, leather and oakmoss.


Someday I hope to look back at this time in our lives and believe that the bad things, at least a lot of them, were used for the good.  And I hope to find that the good things were truly appreciated as much as possible.

The pasta dish I made for my in-laws went over quite well, despite the ratio of the white clam sauce to the linguini being a little off…   My husband’s fresh baked bread was enjoyed for it’s soft, flavorful perfection.   And despite the fact that it could have been better, the blueberry pie was pretty darn good if I do say so myself…


There are many things that need to change in our lives and your lives too, I’m sure, but for some reason I’m feeling hopeful lately…    I hope your week is ending well dear reader.  🙂

  2. @treatwilliams . My blog is offline while I’m fixing it. I’m not sure why I deserve your vitriolic outburst (on someone else’s blog, no less) but have a lovely day 😀

    • Thank you for responding, Atreyu. I had no idea what was going on obviously… Thank you for explaining so graciously. I look forward to reading your blog when it is up again!! It has been missed…
