My Perfume Desires of the Week: My Sin & Oh! de London by Irma Shorell

Tonight I am only mentioning my two latest perfume desires. In reality, I went on a buying spree this week and added several more items to my collection.


I have been very curious to try the re-edition of Lanvin My Sin for quite some time now. Believe it or not, I once had a nearly full big bottle of the original My Sin in my possession. What happened to it? I decided to pitch it because the red bakelite stopper with the mother and daughter logo carved in was slightly broken. Obviously, I was not the person that I am now. The bottle is now laying in some landfill awaiting to be discovered by the archaeologists of the future.



Oh! de London -- Because it harks back to the sixties and still has a particularly devoted and loyal following 30 to 40 years later. The description of the notes too is alluring. "Oh! de London Perfume has top notes of bergamot, Russian sage and Roman chamomile. Middle notes of Chinese geranium, clove bud, rose petal, violet, lily of the valley, ylang-ylang and heliotrope. Dry down notes of East Indian sandalwood, cedarwood, vanilla, oakmoss and vetiver."

Perfumes are available from Long Lost Perfume
