A giant 6oz bottle of this arrived in the mail today, bought blind. This is a gem, an immediate, unqualified love of mine. It is a dense, floral, oriental with a kind of Youth Dew vibe, but so much more interesting. Released in 1933, I have not been able to find out anything about this lovely thing. That's a shame, because it is really very worthy of being better known and loved.
Are there any fellow lovers of Breathless out there who can share their knowledge of this perfume and its notes?
Edit: smelling this side by side with vintage Youth Dew, I couldn't have been more wrong. There is a resinous, balsamic quality about Breathless but it is nothing like the more bitter and pungent YD. It's much sweeter and more floral. Darn it, though, this reminds me so much of something I cannot put my finger on. I hate having a question without an answer What is it that this reminds me of?
