    I wish they were offering them in a mini set.
    This should make a lot of folks very happy.

    • Robin says:

      Yes! Or even in some size smaller than 100 ml.

    • KLMNOP says:

      But who has all those different hair colors?? ;)

  2. nebbe says:

    Beautiful bottle design. I can absolutely see one of these on my bureau.

    I don’t think I’ve ever tried anything by Pateau other than Joy, and I believe my sample had turned. I am curious about this house, will have to dig into some reviews.

    • Robin says:

      Vintage Joy is so gorgeous…if you ever have a chance, do try it! I tried a few of these when they were out as “Ma Collection”, but never fell in love with any. I think Angie will review Adieu Sagesse soon…

  3. Ida says:

    Lovely bottle design. They all sound try-worthy, so I guess desiring a trio means one should plan for hair colouring on rotation. :-)

  4. galbanumgal says:

    All sound worthy of sampling, big sigh over size of bottles & cost. Robin, do you know who owns Patou these days?

    • Robin says:

      Designer Parfums bought them from P&G in 2011, so far as I know they still own them. They’re the ones who brought on Thomas Fontaine, who has done all these reformulations.

  5. Aparatchick says:

    Amour, Amour was absolutely beautiful. I wore it on my wedding day (28 years ago!) and thanks to a lovely and generous commenter here, I have a bottle of it. I’m very interested in seeing how close Deux Amours comes to the original.

  6. nozknoz says:

    I have some of these from the Ma Collection period and a couple of earlier ones. Que sais-ja? is one of my favorites.

    The one I’d most like to see reissued is Vacances, because I’ve never found a full bottle feel lucky to have found the minis. And, of course, it’s beautiful. I’m also hopeful that it might be less harmed by the current IFRA limitations than some of the others, since it’s a lighter floral to begin with. Fingers crossed!

  7. parfumnut says:

    I own some of the Vintage of these, so it will be interesting to sample the new ones and compare them :)

  8. Omega says:

    Really, really want to try the Que.
