Putting up some Christmas decorations and every year I forget I have this. In the mid-80's my favorite perfumes were Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Anais Anais and L'Effleur by Coty. I still have some Lauren & Anais from that time and they still have their scent. But my nose now finds them a wee bit too strong and so I spray once a year and allow myself to go back to my clubbing days and when wearing romantic floral chintz dresses was loved, along with my dad's 1950's long overcoat ( I'd feel like the character Lucy in A Room With a View, 1985 ). L'Effleur always had such romantic packaging, I believe I found it more lovely than the perfume and am happy I held onto this box. Inside is what you see, along with several layers of 1970's Christmas stickers, often used when we mailed out cards. In another box I still have a handful of 70's paper tags and more stickers plus almost all the decorations I grew up with in even more boxes. Sometimes I'll have brief moments and my heart will miss that time from age 17 to 20. Funny, only 3 years and yet so many memories.
