I have worn Red Door by Elizabeth Arden for years though since everyone keeps giving it to me for Christmas.

My absolute favorite fragrance is Joy by Jean Patou. As you can imagine I don't wear it very often or have the money to buy it.

I love Shalimar as well. I wore it for years and years. Just in the last two weeks I bought Opium. I haven't worn Opium in years and it is a very refreshing change from Shalimar although they are both listed as oriental.

I actually like lots of different perfumes. I guess that is how this whole collecting thing began. First I was getting perfume as gifts from my mom and aunt to wear and then came the bottles and then came the solids. There are so many scents out there that I like.

I have a cat named Gypsy rescued from the SPCA. My whole family has cats so it was inevitable. I say that she is not a normal cat, because normal cats like to meow and climb all over you at inconvenient moments and she doesn't really do that. She is happy to be in the same room with me, but not necessarily in my lap. Although as she has gotten older she has become more "touchy-feely". She's a happy cat and has seen me through my bad times. Only other pet owners really understand how much our pets mean to us.

In Topic: Miniature Perfume Bottles

07 August 2004 - 08:05 PM

My perfume collection is all over the place and it does include about 40 - 50 miniatures. That is probably my largest category. I have commercial and decorative bottles, the miniatures and of course the solids. I love the miniatures especially when you see them all grouped together. I can't pick a favorite. They are all so cute.

Are you thinking of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade? I'm pretty sure that is the one you are talking about. Thanksgiving this year is on Thursday, November 25th. As for the Christmas Tree lighting.... the Rockefeller Center Tree will be lit on Wednesday, December 1st. I found the info here:

Hope this helps.
