Holiday fragrance gifts 2017, part 7

We wrap up (ha) our series on fragrance related holiday gifts with the luxury editions — this post is (relatively, sort of) affordable luxury, and following shortly will be part 8, the crazy expensive luxury edition.

I imagine it on a mid-century ingenue, say Natalie Wood.
