    The Haarmann & Reimer Fragrance Guide lists the following notes: Top - peach, plum, strawberry, citrus, spice, nutmeg; Middle - rosewood, carnation, rose, orris, jasmine, lily of the valley; Base - sandalwood, ambrein, patchouli, musk, styrax, benzoin.

    This is a lovely, sophisticated chypre of the fruity floral variety. I find it to be somewhat green as well. Though I don't know who composed it, I would have to say he or she was extremely skilled. I don't detect any outlier or rogue notes as it transitions through top to middle to base. The whole experience is subtle and effortless.

    Though discontinued long ago, this is a classy, grown-up fragrance, a perfume that one can actually wear without the risk of excoriating one's own or other people's sinuses. The box says it was manufactured in Milan, Italy. Like the finest Italian cuisine, it enhances the experience of sharing time with loved ones; it doesn't intrude upon or degrade it. Bravo.

    This scent exemplifies a transitonal perfume from the 70s green chypres to the 80s heavy floral-animalic chypres.
    Mila Schon is an absolutely gorgeous perfume. Not as heavy as some of the later 80s scents, but certainly not a light perfume. It boasts a full bodied citrus top (maybe mandarin + bergamot-reminds me a wee bit of Diorella's introduction) with mint, followed fast by a round, almost gourmand note. There is spice (nutmeg or mace?) and ylang-ylang, rose, possibly osmanthus in the heart. Sandal, Vanilla in the mild base.

    Hoping someone has the official notes out there.
