My Chamade Parfum!

I can't believe I was able to swap with an online friend for a Guerlain Chamade parfum made in France, brand new in box! It feels like a celebration here tonight as I finally got this bottle open with a lot of help. I first cut the gold cord; then, since the glass stopper wouldn't budge, I warmed it in my hand, hoping the sweat in my hands wouldn't rub off the letterings on the beautiful stopper. I was most afraid of snapping the stopper because the shape is so delicate, like a pointed leaf, but here it is--opened and blooming with glorious aroma. I feel blessed, indeed! The sillage is magnificent--a drop goes a long way. The scent in a nutshell is to me the most sublime green, honeyed incense.
