About Via Lanvin

Discontinued in 1984

Reviews of Via Lanvin

This is pleasant green floral, pungent at first and therefore interesting. A combination of violet and orris give it a powdery effect at the heart.

It quickly dries down to an amber/cedar where the cedar is too prominent for my comfort. Better if the amber had taken precedent.

Not bad, not great, just a nice, acceptable scent.

Heart notes: Muguet, Jasmine, Orris, Carnation, Rose, Ylang, Narcissus

I used to love Via Lanvin. It was my first ever fragrance. I was mortified when they discontinued it. I saw some in a small shop in Mexico in December 1986 but I didn't buy it for fear that it had gone off.

I'd like to know why this great fragrance was discontinued? From what I can remember it was the perfect blend of floral, spice, and vanilla. The bottle was fantastic, too!

This was my mother's perfume. I miss her and I miss the fragrance. Via was fresh and woody at the same time. The EDT was available in two different concentrations. I was told Via was created with the North-American woman in mind. I bought a bottle for my mother in Paris in September 1984 at the main Lanvin store and I was a little disappointed with the fragrance. Perhaps there was an American edition and a European edition of Via. Although it was not bad, the EDT I bought in Paris was much more sweet and powdery than the one I was used to. All in all, Via was a very original fragrance and I am so sorry it is no longer available while some nasty perfumes are still around.
