The original Evyan vintage cologne:
Apart from a whiff of citrus in the first few minutes, this is essentially a white floral scent, dominated by muguet, jasmine and gardenia. A lovely combination made of ingredients of high quality.

Unfortunately it collapses after a couple of hours, leaving in its trail a pleasant vanilla note that is tapering gently, being very close to my skin. I get soft sillage, adequate projection and a lamentable shortevity - not longevity - of less than three hours.

Whether the unsatisfactory longevity is related to the age of my sample is unclear, but it is the main drawback in experiencing this otherwise lovely creation for spring on my skin. 2.75/5.

We all had a bottle of this as young teenagers. It was a soft floral, reminded me of honeysuckle, though that is not mentioned in the makeup of this delicate fragrance. I do get the lily of the valley on this. I haven't seen it in years, though. A shame because young teenagers would be a perfect market for this. It just smelled nice.

It was originally by Evyan and then Long Lost made it, now they have quit as well. It was a soft, delicate floral. "Most Precious Perfume has notes of tarragon, heliotrope, anise oil, lemon, lily of the valley, ylang ylang, jasmine, orange flower, gardenia, rose, tonka, coumarin" If anyone can help me find something that will be similar in nature to this I would be grateful. I've had other scents over the years but when I lost my sense of smell several years ago I started to wear only this and now I running out:(
