Tocca's Miracle

Fear not! I am not about to saunter down an olfactory expedition to dabble with base notes or whatever they may be!

I just wanted to mention that this is a mighty fine bottle that lays tribute to those wonderful old fashioned bottles of days gone by.


Giulietta by Tocca was a gift to me and thus it is not the type of fragrance that I would normally select for myself. However, this is precisely why I like it so. It is a comforting and feminine scent that is rather consoling in the winter.


I love the bottle. It bares much detail.


The box holds a little love note within it's folds.

Do you have a favourite scent or one that you would like to get hold of?
Right now, I am lusting over Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver. I know it's for men, I want it anyway.

    I use to really want to collect perfume bottles when i was younger because a lot of them are very pretty. but of course I figured i would never be able to afford getting them all. haha
    I like perfumes in the fruity citrus range, do you prefer floral, citrus or other blends?

    Thanks for asking. In general, I prefer citrussy, slightly woody scents. A bit masculine I suppose?

  3. You're right, that bottle reminds me of something my grandma would have had on her vanity. I really love Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess perfume. I'm really not a perfume person, but this reminds me of the perfect summer night.

  4. Several Tom Ford fragrances. Would like to pick up Belle D'Opium too but I'm so unsure about it. I don't know how it would smell on me once warmed up.

    Please tell me you haven't left Twitter. I went to say hello and discovered it gone. I was most upset.

  5. Scent is such a personal thing. My favorite is L'Artisan's Vanilia {sadly has been discontinued}.

  6. I'm with you hon, I like them slightly masculine, a bit woody but not too much musk. They give me a headache otherwise :/
    Gorgeous bottle, looks antique

  8. i love the details on the top! i typically prefer citrus notes, but the last couple of perfumes i've purchased have been more floral/rose. i rarely wear perfume now, but my old standby is Banana Republic's Classic...if I could get my hands on Armani White She I'd be happy girl, but it was discontinued years ago
