Reviews of 1953

Starting with a quotation from the Pell Wall website in order to explain the inspiration for this scent :-

"Named '1953' - after the year of the coronation - because among many special things involved in the accession to the throne of a British Monarch perhaps the most special is the anointing - according to Wikipedia British Monarchs are the only ones still anointed as part of the ceremony and it is done with a specially made Coronation Oil - the ingredients for which have been similar since the 12th Century and include ambergris, civet, rose, jasmine, orange flower, cinnamon, musk and benzoin.
(synthetic substitutes have been used for civet & musk)"

As might be expected, this is a classy scent, the lovely, spicy orange blossom notes develop into an elegant and timeless, subtly blended slightly spicy floral with notes of rose, jasmine, ambergris and benzoin.

One hopes that the Coronation Oil was as enjoyable!

This is a heady, substantial floral -- aimed at a female market. If you like this style, then check it out.
It starts with very good, accurate orange blossom notes. The spices are gentle and warm. The floral notes develop. They are attractive, weighty, and amplified by the benzoin.
The scent is fairly sweet but not cloying. Thankfully the vanilla is non-detectable and the ambergris and civet are quite civilized and in small doses.
