This is lovely and surprisingly fresh. I bought a bottle that must be 50 years old but it happens to be encased in a brass cover so it is beautifully fresh. It is a very soapy, floral aldehyde that delights the nose with a bit of spiciness, perhaps a carnation note. The blend is smooth, as older fragrances often are and very classic ladylike. There is a powdery vibe in the mix. I think this would fit as the scent of a woman's boudoir.

totally unique; fruity, musky, metallic floral, violet smelling though not a note listed, maybe iris; as dries down woods come forward

OK... I'm the first reviewer, and I actually opened a sealed box for this review!

My bottle was circa 1975, with a screw-on atomizer. It cost $10 new, with two price tags on the cellophane to prove it. Yes, it was actually $10.00... not $9.95 or $9.99!

The bottle is very beautiful, by the way. The glass is covered in bright chrome, and the label is a little brass plaque on the front. The fragrance is also unusual, at least by modern standards. It's a deep, musky floral oriental with a metallic note in the background. Later, it turns to 'Dove' or 'Dial' soap, as many older perfumes ineveitably seem to do.

I like it, but I can't seem to describe it very well. It's definitely from a different place and time... something made from natural materials that your grandmother would recognize and adore, and your pre-teen sister would flee in terror from.
