Well, dear, I was CAUGHT! Though I was a little doubtful about the name which sounded so un-Chanel (ie: needs to be pronounceable and meaningful in the maximum possible languages).

Stupid Blogger (not you, the software!). Denyse is Carmencanada, bijne sûr.

I fell for it too! And it reminds me-- Have you tried the PG called (something like) Crime Exotique? This has been on my mind since I saw it in N's store on Ebay. . . . I NEED to know!

I had to think fast, as I completely forgot about 04/01 and only remembered like an hour before midnight. Didn't want to completely abandon the Reve thing. :-)
About the pronounceable in the maximum languages, gosh, I wish all companies did that. Not naming names, but there are some that go a little overboard :-)

Thank you for falling for it. I didn't think anyone actually would :-) I am pleased as punch. :-)

C, did you actually make up the note list? It sounds good! Don't tell me its the notes for that god-awful Chance or something... I'm kind if disappointed now. Good one, though!

I borrowed most of the notes from Coco and added chocolate :-)

Hey, well that makes me feel better - I love Coco, and now I see why!

Duh ... I was caught, too. Although I did read the notes and think, wow, that sounds a lot like Coco, which I love -- but (as Carmencanada said) I did think, dang, another fragrance name I can't pronounce!
