I downloaded the two main clips from Alexsas Trotter in '04, who literally gave his life up to the sport in 2005. RIP Aleksas. In memory of Elena Shushunova (Елена Шушунова) [Apr 23 1969 - Aug 16 2018] Notice the amount of dance elements in both routines, though totally different in choreography & personality.They actually draw the audience in much more than most of the floor routines these days. These were also significant historically because the first was the 99th perfect 10.000 in Olympic history while the second was the 100th 10.000!

Daily Mirror gymnastics. Includes one of the most delightful & entertaining floor routines of all time (in my opinion).

A tribute to one of the more determined gymnasts in my books...Lavinia Milosovici..a movable condolence card that I hope will help her to move on with her life... I've lost my job, my friends, my financial security and trust in people in general but I know it can't be as bad as losing your child...

Lilia Podkopayeva trailed by 0.082 points heading into the final rotation and needed at least 9.813 on floor exercise to stop Svetlana Boginskaya's march to a plausible third European all-around crown.

Part of my well-deserved vacation after 4 1/2 years of working 7 days a week, and after trading brilliantly in the stockmarket in 2013, a banner year. The upstairs area was under renovation,so it wasn't as impressive inside as I expected it to be. Still, I managed to sample Sous le Vent and Spirituese Double Vanille and see up close the limited edition flacons of L'Heure Bleue in blue crystal quadrilobe, Shalimar with a sapphire and the L'Abeille de Guerlain.

The very first fragrance from the house of Guerlain! Launched in 1853, it predates the first modern perfume, Jicky, by 36 years. Arguably the longest continually produced scent ever. But also one of the shortest lasting, so be forewarned!

A unique & unusual oriental gourmand that is not covered by 'The Perfume Guide', and was the third fragrance from the house of Laura Biagiotti. http://vintageperfumepalace.blogspot.com Apparently, not all the ingredients available in the original formulation are still obtainable, so it no longer smells as rich and seductive as before.

My 2nd fragrance review. Hope y'all enjoy it! P/S : Try not to buy Mitsouko made in the new millenium. It's well-known that they reformulated this wonderful fragrance into near oblivion! Try, like me, to obtain bottles from the 80s or earlier. However, those from the 50s - 60s may no longer be usable because of the deterioration of oakmoss & vetiver in the fragrance.

Another review, this time of Jicky, from the house of Guerlain. Created in 1889 by Aimé Guerlain and bearing his 15-year-old nephew Jacques' nickname, Jicky is the world's oldest perfume in continuous production yet still today considered by many as being one of the greatest, a semi-oriental fougère.
