    The opening is classic-phantastic: bergamot, clary sage, a great petitgrain with a bit of citrus - green with a touch of freshness and a whiff of booziness. The drydown veers a bit to the discretely floral, with jasmine, a nice carnation note and a bit of a darker rose added. Green and discretely floral - delightful. The base does not get too heavy; oregano, labdanum and a whiff of a light moss, with a subdued leather lining. This classic composition in it's green-floral-richness with a tilt towards chypre reminds me of a more elegant version of dunhill's Blend 30, and some features are reminiscent of Courreges PH. Blended exceedingly well of top-grade ingredients, with splendid silage and projection. The longevity is absolutely amazing at around thirteen hours. In all aspects a masterpiece by Lanvin for autumn.

    Really nice green chypre. Starts with a nice green and citrus opening. Definitiely an indolic note as well. I get vetiver, oakmoss and leather in the base. Lasts longer than I expected. This is really nice!


    Edit: the above us actually a review of Eau de Lanvin for men.

    A dry green vetiver opening draws comparison to the better known Chanel No.19 EDT. But the vetiver swiftly submerges into the background to give way to a mildly soapy floral blend with listed notes of citrus, neroli, carnation, jasmine and rose. I also detect iris and more than a hint of leather as drydown beckons.

    What a pity it has been discontinued for LANVIN FOR MEN is another suave, classy gem of a scent for the distinguished gentleman.

    One of my favorites of all time. Used to wear it in the 80s. Used to get it at Sara's London Shop in Tijuana Mexico. Can no longer find it.

    I have about 1 oz left. I wonder if anyone can copy it???

    I remember this scent when it was introduced in 1979. It smells like nothing else, and comes from a different era. Its a shame it was discontinued. A very classy scent. I was able to find a bottle of this on the internet and use it very sparingly.
