Reviews of Shocking You

There is one review of Shocking You.
Elsa Schiaparelli's couture house closed in 1954 and she died in 1973, so this scent from 1976 may have been approved by her or have been in the works at her death or it may be the last created by the perfume branch of the house, which was separate from the couture side.

In any case this is clearly a green floral. Additional middle notes for the tree above are raspberry in the middle and musk and oak moss in the base.

It is very green, primarily galbanum and rose. Yet it is a light green scent, very well blended and not at all over-bearing. The base notes provide the proper weight at the other end of the scale, keeping the green notes from being screechy.

I'd rate this with Givenchy's III and Jacomo's Silences as being a top quality green floral. Easily findable on Etsy.
