    I'm so glad I found this group because I love vintage perfume. I adore the scent of Youth Dew and many others. It seems that people of my generation don't know what "REAL" perfume smells like. All these sweet candy scents are just awful! "Pink Sugar" UGH!!! And the things the guys wear, a wet dog smells better than some of the men I've been around. I'm not new to perfume but I am new to talking about it so please excuse me if I say something that sounds a bit off.

    Yes, I agree that 'vintage' is usually much more interesting than modern when it comes to fragrance (I feel this way about clothes, furniture, architecture etc. too!). There used to be a greater variety of perfume types in the past, eg. chypres, leathers, aldehydics. Apart from niche, most contemporary frags are aquatics, woody or fruity florals that are insanely strong.

    Do you have a collection of vintage scents? I have a pic of mine that I can share if I can work out how to post a photo...

    Apart from Youth Dew, what others are you enjoying?
