Bat-Sheba by Judith Muller

Went antiquing today and found a good sized bottle of Bat Sheba made for Judith Muller, an Israeli designer in 1966, by perfumer Sophia Grojsman.

Yesterday's Perfume describes it as "a pungent rose petal had been dipped in a pot of pachouli, honey, sandlelwood and a dash of narcotic allure".  It is all of that and more.  Read the entire review

Even more interesting is the bio of the perfumer, which can be found at

Top: Aldehydes, cardamon, bergamot, fruit note, rosewood.
Middle: Jasmine, assisted by rose, orris, ylang-ylang and carnation for a sultry floral effect.
Base: Patchoulli, assisted by vetiver, castoreum, amber, leather and moss for a warm sensual note

My third try at sampling this iconic scent and I still don't like it.  Starts out very strong and dark and reminds me of decay of some sort.  After a while, I smell play-doh and then it dries down to a very sweet vanilla.  I have never liked a strong vanilla on my skin.  I so wanted to love this.  Lucky for me I purchased a vintage decant and didn't spring for a whole bottle.

I have ordered Champagne de Bois and Forest Walk decants from Sonoma Scent Studio.  I really can't wait to try them.

I am wearing my first ever Chanel No 5 today.  It's vintage, found in a small bottle that I picked up a few weeks ago which is about 1/3 full.  I am surprised that this is the first time I have sampled it as I was so excited upon finding a vintage Chanel.

Imagine my joy when I discovered on the dry down that it smelled like my Easter Basket from long ago!  Could it be those wonderful Stover White Rabbits?
