A non-descript floral from 1982 - very drugstore - Barbara Herman found more depths to this than I did. She described it as a combo of menthol and tuberose with spearmint, fruit and tarragon added, drying down to a muguet powdery wood base.
I have a vintage bottle which is so mediocre as to render it a non-scent. Brava to Ms. Herman's nose, as I can detect nothing of the above - just an aldehydic mess, amounting to nothing at all.
Top notes: Bergamot, Spearmint, Tarragon
Heart notes: Jasmine, Tuberose, Cyclamen, Muguet, Orris, Rose, Magnolia, Ylang
Base noes: Cedar, Sandalwood, Moss, Musk, Civet, Amber
Very cheesy bottle with badly manufactured plastic top.
The end of an interesting line of scents from the great make-up artist of Hollywood.
l wore the original Max Factor version in my late teens. lt was a pleasant, but cheap powdery white floral. l knew almost nothing about quality fragrances at the time, though. l'd probably hate it if l smelled it now.
My first fragrance... purchased with babysitting money. Dreamy, light fresh green top note, white petals, soft powder with a very subtle incense dry down. Reminds me of pink lipstick, angora sweaters, designer jeans and my mother's pearl earrings. After school dances in the jr. high school boy's gym, swaying to Spandau Ballet in the arms of a football hero. Heady stuff the memories that nostalgic first fragrance conjures.
Very nice, brings back memories. Soft, feminine and the advertizement had Jane Seymour in it. It said, "if you want romance to come on strong, you have to come on soft."
