PS: Here I am, trying to get out of the house to go celebrate New Year's Eve, and I keep thinking about my 2008 list - something wasn't right - I'd forgotten some important new findings - well it just came to me....D'Orsay Tilleul, Parfums de Nicolaï Mimosaique and Lalique Le Parfum. I've added these 3 to the above list making it a list of 15. Oh, well, it was a good perfume year, what can I say?
