What an interesting idea, to list perfumes by their Chinese year of birth... I wonder if it's good luck to wear them during "their" year. And if so, do the new Chanels count? If not, bring on the Vent Vert and the Miss Dior, it's their year every year...

D,
I read a little about what Fire Pig is supposed to be like and it is said it's going to be not an easy year: conflicts, explosions (literal and figural)...So a bit of luck won't hurt. I am going to wear Miss Dior tonight, just in case :-)

Dear Columbina,
I can't believe the number of favorite fragranges made their debut during The Year Of The Pig! Narcisse Noir, Le Dix, Miss Dior, Cabochard, Chanel No. 19, Clinique Aromatics, Rive Gauche, AG Passion, Diva, Paris, Dolce Vita ( Love this one !!!) Hanae Morae Oh My !
What a great concept : While I do not know enough about the characteristics of one born in the YOT Pig, I confess, I find it difficult to draw any relationship ! Your list, is a trip down memory lane for me !

Dear Madelyn,
The only relationship I can see is that I love so many of them :-)
