That One Green Chypre

When I first came to BN, I really didn't care for them. The Chypres. The mossiness was sort of a dealbreaker for me. Just too old lady. But as I collected vintage bottles, interspersed with occasional trips to retail establishments, I began to notice when the restricted ingredients weren't there, and I missed moss and clove and everything else. In spite of myself, I started appreciating and even liking the retro chypres. Vintage Chantilly, vintage 1000, Arpege, and the whole auntie wardrobe in general. There were a few disappointments, I wasn't swept away by Mitsouko or Sous Le Vent, and a few sleeper hits, like Cuir D'Oranger by Miller Harris. But then there was That One Green Chypre...Caline by Jean Patou.
