I had a very strange perfume day.  We stopped by a shop we hadn't visited in a while and was rewarded finding 9 little mini bottles, none of which I had in my collection.  I also found a larger size bottle of a perfume called Frond by Vincent.  It was unopened (no box) and very vintage looking, so I took a shot and purchased it.

Upon my return home, I did some research and found that it is indeed vintage, hard to find and was made by Vincent and it purported to be the aroma of the wild ferns, heather and wildflowers of the Irish countryside according to  The strangeness comes in because I have never owned a perfume created in Ireland and today is St. Patrick's Day!  And, no, I am not Irish, but I trust that I had a little bit of luck today finding this! 
I have been very bad when it comes to posting my new finds.  Although it's no where near New Years, I am going to resolve to be better at keeping my vintage scents updated.  Here we have Nuit De Longchamp, a beautiful oriental with notes of Bergamot, Orange blossom, Nutmeg, Cardamom, Ylang ylang, Rose, Jasmine, Iris, Sandalwood, Broom, Patchouli, Vetiver, Tolu and Peru balsams, Labdanum, Oak moss.  The second bottle is Charbert, a beautiful amber scent.
