Whenever things are lined up like this, I think of Babushka dolls. But these are not Babushka dolls. This is my L’Eau d’Issey family. The big bottle on the left is nearly empty. Which prompted the buying of a replacement. The new 50ml bottle came with a 10ml accompaniment. The little one at the end came as a sample with other perfumes I bought ages ago. It has a twin but that one lives in my handbag. I don’t know why the two in the middle are clearer than the others. Whatever, they still smell the same.

While I was taking these photos I also became quite fascinated by how the background was reflected (?) in the little glass globes on top of the perfume bottles. It was as if I had captured a bouquet of flowers in the glass. Yes, I am easily amused. You should know that by now.

In other news, the folks over at the Be In Style blog were kind enough to mention me in their Carnival of Shopping. Thanks guys!


  1. Have you smelled their summer scent? I love that one.

    I like the second picture. The floral print is so beautiful, is that a bed spread or cloth?

    @christine: No I haven't tried the summer scent. I think I should put it on my to-do list though. The material is just a scrap piece of cloth. I don't really know what to do with it, haha.

    woah that's so trippy! the florals are like, trapped within the glass!

    gorgeous scent. I don't own it but my friend does.


  4. Oh this is funny, I have 3 different sized ralph lauren purfumes lined up like this. Your bottles are much prettier though, I like the large frosted one. Frosted glass is so lovely.
