    Excalibur by Avon

    Circa 1969 sample dark storage container with no apparent evaporation:

    Crisp green and woody up front. If you continue smelling it close to the skin at this point you can detect cinnamon.

    It progresses to a mostly woodsy drydown, a dab of musk, a touch of spice and something akin to lime peel (but it does not strike me as bergamot if that was the source of the citrus) There is not much of a transition from the time the crispness wears off to this point.

    It doesn't project much after the opening, drydown is quite pleasant actually. A touch heavy on wood perhaps. Nothing to write home about.

    I wouldn't give a thumbs up. It is not exciting it will not offend after its brief opening. The crisp opening reminds me vaguely if a citrusy Polo or something along those lines. That might sound appealing but it is not as appealing as you would think
