    Review is for the pure perfume, from a previously unopened vintage bottle. Dark color indicates oxidation although there is no evaporation.

    A sweet and boozy entrance, with lots of Benzoin, Carnation, & Jasmine, blends seamlessly into a mincemeat pie of spices-Cinnamon, Nutmeg, powdered Ginger- enveloped in Damascan rose, all anchored by what I am sure is natural Beeswax and Patchouli. The collision of notes calms nicely within about 15 minutes, when Oakmoss serves as the canvas for muted versions of the previously screaming notes. A beautiful perfume for the holidays.

    Despite the designation as a Chypre, I do not get any citric notes in the top; perhaps they are degraded in my bottle.

    The longevity and concentration are insane; a mere drop lasts close to a day. At $10 for a mini of perfume, this is not to be missed!

    I have some manufacturer's samples of the concentrated cologne. This fume seems to be a strong oriental floral with a pronounced civet note. Probably some patch and moss in the base, too, but I wouldn't call it a true chypre. It has a balsamic structure, like Youth Dew. It reminds me of that, Charles of the Ritz Senchal and Kismet (the vintage one, not Lubin). Strong, sexy and a bit skanky! A winner!

    Pretty strong perfume-one spray is enough, but I like the way it smoothes down to a spicy, oriental fragrance. I'll wear this often.
