Paloma Picasso / Mon Parfum fragrance notes

Reviews of Paloma Picasso / Mon Parfum

My two penn'orth on this one is that I find it a smoother and more accessible musky oakmoss scent. It's not as overpowering as Tabu or Aramis 900 for example. I like that the fairly astringent opening dies down to a nice warm and creamy but nonetheless musk-laden perfume for the remainder of it's life-span on my skin. The sprayer on my bottle fires it out like a gun, and this is no meek juice so I have to be careful. The patch here is not too strong but rather gives a subtle backdrop to the main players' animalic antics. To me the various floral and citrus notes, along with the Civet and Castoreum, give a classic but relatively restrained overall scent. But it has great performance and that floral musk keeps going until a mossy, grassy, woody-amber base gradually creeps in. Civet is king here though and remains at the top throughout on me.

This feels VERY vintage. Smell this if you want to know what “dirty” civet smells like. It’s all over the fragrance, from the opening to the late (oh so late) dry down. Flowers and savory spices are well present as well. Beautiful and original, but I can’t go past the dirtiness. Sample first. It might not be for you. It isn’t for me. Sillage is awesome.

I like this better on a colleague who is older and older-fashioned than me. It is strong and seductive, but with good manners that belie an earthy humour. On me, it feels like a winter coat a size too big and a style too mature, though it is beautifully made.

Aromatics Elixir has some of the same properties, but stays dry and resolutely un-sweet. The dark honey of Mon Parfum adds an intriguing, boozy layer of red-lipsticked gossip which I admire but can't pull off.

Epitome of the 1980's. Deep, dark, mysterious and sensual. A resinous liquid of euphoric delight. Deep rose offset with wooded smoky nuances and a candied honey. Oakmoss and patchouli add depth and sensuality while citrus and coriander add sparkling elements throughout this ethereal creation. Perfectly suitable for a man or a women, and it draws compliments from many. This ranks up in my top ten of all time scents, and the newest version is as faithful as it was when launched. *Also a real bargain on the wallet in this world of overpriced same-same fleeting scents.....

Met my wife, she was wearing Chanel 5. Platinum Blonde in Black, Ivory and Gold. Chanel Flats.
Her next for daily wear was Paloma Picasso perfume. It seems to me that it was more Civet driven in the Late 80's early 90's. It had an over the top Honeyed Piss note like Ho Hang Club. Loved it on her.
Seems that it is still a bit skanky and has lost the bloom. Still available and discounted often.

TJMaxx had the EDP on sale today, and I'd been curious about it because I love the big, opulent fragrances of the 80s - what a great purchase! It's a marvelous blend of florals, with the dark heart of a chypre; indeed, it's reminiscent of Magie Noire (as others have said), but more of the floral notes are apparent to my nose in PP than MN. It begins with a big citrus blast, then a bitter bloom appears in the midst of a bed of patchouli, and finally dries down to a powdery but exotic floral. If you like Magie Noire, Youth Dew, Obsession, Poison and their ilk, chances are you'll appreciate this one - not that any of them smell alike, but they're part of a grand tradition that continues to resonate.
