This Fabergé drugstore classic was a high school scent for me, too. Now I regard it as my reference chypre. A recently acquired vintage EdC had more tenacity than more modern scents in EdP concentration. Aphrodisia is cool, warm, spicy, fruity, and mossy all at once. Niche fragrances wish they could be this daring and persuasive.

Despite this being yet another copy of Millot's ground-breaking 1925 creation, CREPE DE CHINE, you can't fault it.

Honeyed floral tobacco potpourri with a rich animalic blend of oak moss, vetiver, civet and ambreum, you can't go wrong with this great scent, which has been copied by some of the greats:

Schiaparelli in SHOCKING; D'Albret in ECUSSON; Lelong in TAILSPIN; Monteil in ROYAL SECRET; Ciro in SURRENDER; Balenciaga in QUADRILLE, etc.

All the houses seemed to want their own copy of the CREPE best selling classic. APHRODISIA can hold its head up as worthy.

Yup, yummy stuff. In high school I was not as over-the-moon for it as I was for its sister fragrance, Woodhue. By college, though, I had discovered scents like this--complex, opulent and very French.

Notes off the internet (Perfumed Court): "bergamot, lemon, neroli and fruits; middle notes of rose, honey, ylang-ylang, carnation and jasmine; and base notes of oakmoss, vetiver, civet, ambrien and musk.

I am sampling a vintage version (successfully coaxed stopper off bottle...mawhahaha) and it is fantastic. A honey stew of old-style fruit...dark..not the modern shampoo fruit...cinnamon notes (or clovey-carnation) dressed with the chanel like rose and jasmine combo.... This all coalesces to rich creamy powder. Then, there is a tonne of moss and musk. So, it's a girly thing with a husky dusky voice.
