    A recent thread on Basenotes got me thinking about classic fragrances. I went to a department store a few days ago, and browsed the perfume counters. Women's counter had Shalimar (1921) Chanel no 5 (1921), Opium (1977) and White Sholders (1945). Going over to the men's counter, the oldest thing that I could find was Polo (1978) followed by Fahrenheit and Cool Water, both from 1988. Why the lack of classics in the men's line?

  2. Sandalwood scent

    Thank you for your answers.
    the original price was 150 Euros for 30ml. They say in their website that the oil is pure and 100% natural. In fact this is a special offer...
