Greenbriar by Casewell-Massey (1984) Vintage / Reformulation

  1. odysseusm
    The vintage version is charmingly old-school. A bit sweet, definitely aromatic, and rather powerful. Full of dusky herbal notes and a substantial soapy character. The sage and thyme develop in the dry-down. Very green, very herbal.
    Reformulated version greets you with ozone and citrus immediately. Also a bit sweet. Thinner or less dense than the vintage version. Cooler in the "fresh" way that was popular in its time (and may still be popular in some circles). This version is not as exciting, more commercial and somewhat bland, though inoffensive.
    The two versions are completely different.
    Vintage notes: Artemisia, Sage, Thyme, Lavender, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Amber
    Reformulated version notes: Petitgrain, Mandarin and Ozone; French lavender, Russian sage, modern florals; patchouli, cool musk, labdanum absolute
