I often wonder since when and why I am passionated about beauty ? !
And there is a few days ago my boyfriend , who is a great antique hunter , brought me back these few vintage bottles of Guerlain, stamped 1987.
Obviously , I start bitching that he brings me back AGAIN some dirty stuff and he answer me :
- "The color is beautiful , I found them fun to illustrate one of your post ... "
I put them away but one day I was passing by, I was thinking that is true the color is super nice but Jardins de Bagatelle reminds me of sweet memories .
Indeed, it tickles me since a long time the passion for beauty because Jardins de Bagatelle was one of my first beauty crush and I was 11 !
Back in the 80's , I am in collège and I am fascinated by Mrs L. our matron . Hyper sophisticated as the Ladies of this time, big hair, big makeup, always wearing navy blue suit with a big jewelry nestled at the birth of her chest and especially her perfume make me crazy ...
She was smelling so good, I was so pleased to smell her each time I was passing next to her. The story turns to obsession because I wanted to know the name of this delicious fragrance but I did not dare to ask her ... in the 80's familiarities were not permitted .
So determined and obsessed, I finally have the audacity to ask her what she was wearing , needless to say that I still remember what she answer me :
- " Mademoiselle but who do you think you are"
However, the miracle happened shortly after ... one day in shopping at the perfumery with my late Grandma Jolie, Hallelujah I recognize the thing "Jardins de Bagatelle "!
It does not take long for me to convince Grandma Jolie to drop the $ $ $.
I was 11 years my perfume was a Guerlain while my girlfriends sprinkled herself with Anaïs Anaïs , was not already hyper hype beauty lovers ? !
