Lovely range of teasonably priced ,handmade perfume...and a good choice of containers. Some reviewers have stated that the perfumes leaked in transit...I bought 5 bottles and didn't have a problem. They were very well wrapped

I visited here in 2004. I sampled all the scents that interested me, which takes some time (your nose needs a break). I bought a suitcase full of my favourites. I grow antique roses and other flowers for their scents. These perfumes remind me not...More
