    A masterful oriental from 1934.

    Similar to Emeraude and Shalimar, this opens with Bergamot and Vanilla, supported by Lavender, Benzoin, Amber, Opoponax and Patchouli. Mysterious gourmand oriental. There is the sense of a rich frankincense and myrrh presence as well.

    The originals are worth seeking out on Ebay.

    First edit: As the pure parfum gets lower and lower in the bottle, there is a distinct pleasant coal-tar presence that makes this more of an oriental leather, than a simple oriental.

    Created by Jean Carles and very much related to his masterpiece Shalimar , Sirocco is very under-appreciated . It opens witha lavender-vanilla accord ( similar to Caron Pour un Homme ( released the same year ) but the rich amber-patchouli base soon comes forward . There is a small floral heart , but this is all about the incensey opopponax and patchouli drydown . It is the patchouli that saves this from becoming too rich and sweet , and the longevity is excellent .
    The older , twisted bottles of dark jus are much richer , the newer , long necked bottles are a little vapid .
