About Geminesse

Geminesse is a feminine perfume by Prism Parfums. The scent was launched by Max Factor in 1974, and was discontinued for many years before being relaunched in 2015 by Prism Parfums, who describe it as:

A multi-floral top peels back to reveal leather and woods but keeps the floral dancing along the edges forever. A scent tailored to uniquely reflect feminine strength and ambition

Reviews of Geminesse

This is a very interesting scent, coming as it does in the mid-1970s, as it belongs more in the late 1940s-early 1950s.

A fine balance of florals and mossy chypre base.

Quite unusual and worth seeking out on Ebay.

That scent defined me!
I couldn't stop smelling it...It gave me a lot of self-confidence & smile more often-I cherished it, and when I couldn't find it, I looked for new ones, but really I was looking for IT!
Was never wild about the name though?!

We weep that this was discontinued. Multifloral top that peeled back to reveal leather and woods but kept the flroal dancing along the edges forever. There was nothing sweet about this one. Assertive and reminiscent of good saddlery. Business like with a very warm feeling drydown.

TGSC lists the constituent notes as: jasmin, rose, ylang, muguet, tuberose, vetiver, oakmoss, amber, musk and leather.

But it was in some ways a product of the time, nascent 1970's feminism - independence and MTM and the man tailored suit - taken over by the full-blown oriental siren song of the 1980's and the attendant soutache, and Dynasty-esque shoulder pads.
