True Colours Thursday - NAVY!

Now, Mother confessed to struggling with this weeks colour, but not me, as I have a tale of hoped for seduction via this to relate...When Mother was young, a long time ago, even by my standards, Grandmothers very favourite perfume was 'Evening in Paris'.
Created in 1929 by Bourjois; by the Nineteen Fifties it had become "The Most Famous Fragrance in the World."
It came in a dark blue bottle with a dream of sophistication, romance & escapism, and Mother has inherited several of these small iconic bottles in their original packaging and full too.
The scent is too sweet for her now, but she told Merry and I, that the slightest whiff still conjures up special childhood memories like a good-night kiss.
Now, upon hearing this, dear Merry doused herself in it.
You see she is rather smitten with Master Stormy in his NAVY & White ribbon..Wearing her best silk NAVY neckerchief, she is keen to share a kiss with him.
I do worry, her feelings may not be reciprocated!
As despite her best efforts todate, he seems only inclined to cuddling...Guess only time will tell, whether the 'Evening in Paris' magic still works!

Sir Woodstock....your Miss Rosie here...guess what I am wearing?
Yes indeed a splash of Evening In Paris perfume! Mommy has a huge bottle she bought in Switzerland. it smells so sweet and brings back memories for us also. We looked at your mummy's sweet little baby photo again today. It sits in an Italian bowl decorated with cherubs on our buffet.
Oh {{{blush}}} what did you think I was wearing?
Oh I think I need some smelling salts...

Being a romantic, I'm rooting for Merry! Even as a child, I knew about Evening in Paris, and I lived in middle of nowhere Illinois. Thus proves it must have been the most well known fragrance. Very pretty bottle.
