I am reviewing the vintage parfum.
Au débouché, I get geranium, roses, cinnamon and patchouli.
Once I dab it on my skin, what I perceive is geranium, roses, cinnamon, patchouli, vanilla, benzoin and ambergris.
I find it a spicy, smooth and creamy oriental that doesn't smell dated at all; it is quite classic in feel.
I don't get any chypre-ness from it.
It possesses a raw sensuality that is enhanced by its vanillic sillage (sillage is a lot more vanillic than what it smells like on the skin), an animalic vanilla, not a gourmand one.
Its staying power is excellent.
