Online Detective at Your Service

I simply can’t believe I’m this good.

For years, I’ve been thinking about this perfume my mom had when I was a little girl. All I could remember was the way the bottle looked, that it was French and expensive and that I loved the way it smelled. For years, I have been searching in stores and online trying to see if I could find it and suprise my mom with it.

Well, last night I was bored and got on eBay and went through all the vintage perfumes and spotted a similarly designed bottle so I googled the perfume maker and BINGO! I was able to find it. Originally launched in 1962, BAL A VERSAILLES by JEAN DESPREZ. I’m so delighted I just had to share, it’s gonna blow her mind when she gets it!
