The opening blast is fresh an fruity, with orange and peach being freshened up by an aldehydic lashing of bergamot.

In the drydown appears what will be to central to the development: jasmine and ylang-ylang, transforming the initial fruitiness into warm and floral oriental vibes. Further sweetness and warmth is added by touches of cinnamon and vanilla, although this sweet tone is never intrusive or cloying and blends in seamlessly with the whole mix.

The base contributes an animalic touch, with a dark and musky civet counterbalancing the sweetness quite effectively, assisted by ambery and leathery undertones towards the end.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

A complex Oriental scent for spring or autumn evenings, that exudes richness combined with elegance. 3.5/5

Found a bottle of vintage Zadig. Mine is simply aldehydes, spices, a touch of orange. The middle and bottom are condensed with dirty jasmine, civet, amber, and patchouli. Classic oriental-style perfume.

I'm wearing vintage Zadig as I type this and I can say that DollyDagger64 and Brielle87, everybody so far really, hit the nail on the head - this is a warm, indolic jasmine scent with a dark rose and vetiver underneath. Seductive in a sneaky way. Owes a lot to Patou's Joy.

UPDATE: I don't know, maybe the two years that have past since I wrote the first review have affected the juice in my tiny bottle of Zadig even more. This is still a little like Joy, only there now seems to be a lot more leathery, woodiness in the heart and drydown. It's also leaning a little towards an oakkmoss note that I haven't seen listed anywhere, but the effect is definitely there. Joy, vintage Replique and Crepe de Chine al come to mind when I smell this. discovering these extra little nuances has compelled me to change my rating from a neutral to a thumbs up.

Yum. Warm, rich and gorgeous. Opening blast very reminiscent of AG Grand Amour, but drydown goes down another path toward Shalimar. An hour in, I get mainly honeyed jasmine with a non-gourmand vanilla-dominated underlay, animalic as others have said, which reminds me of PG Felanilla.

The Perfumed Court says:
Top Notes: Aldehydes, Bergamot, orange, peach, coriander
Heart Notes: Clove, rose , honey, Jasmine, orris, ylang ylang
Base notes: Vetiver, benzoin, Patchouli, cinnamon, vanilla, tolu, Tibetan musk, & amber.

At first I thought simple/basic/uneventful. On second try, I'm warming up to it. It's a dark jasmine that projects softly. I get nothing sweet. However, its character is sweet. But still a bit slinky. A cat-eyed jasmine.

Warm and sensual. Animalic without being obnoxious. Very sexy.
