FATH – CANASTA (1950)

Launched in 1950, Jacques Fath's Canasta is classified as a fruity chypre.

My vintage mini parfum smells initially of the suede note (lots of orris butter, no doubt) with the luscious and voluptuous fruit notes (peach, plum, cherry) held in check for a bit, then slowly floated atop the suede.

This is no girly fruity floral of the type that proliferates in modern perfumery. These fruits are stewed, not freshly bursting with juice.
As such, this is a scent for a mature woman, but one that can be worn on any occasion. Unisex by today’s standards as it is rich, but subdued.

Once again I find that Fath was a master conjuror with orris butter. So many of his great scents (Iris Gris, Fath’s Love) use it as a solid base around which to build an original perfume note tree. The orris even drowns out the usually dominant tuberose.

The base, except for the afore-mentioned orris, is not evident to my nose.
Very nice fruity suede effect. Still available online from private sellers.

Top notes: Bergamot, Peach
Heart notes: Herbs, Labdanum, Heliotrope, Tuberose, Cherry Liqueur, Plum
Base notes: Sandalwood, Suede (Orris), Oak Moss, Patchouli, Vanilla, Vetiver, Amber
