  85. Re: Reformulated Fragrances That Are Most Different From Their Vintage Counterparts

    Where does one even begin?

    I'll vote for Givenchy L'Interdit (1957) which has undergone many reformulations, with the 2003 version probably the worst of all since it was unacknowledged and the...

    Re: Mixerscent Attar and deep Vintage Sample Pass

    I'm so glad you enjoyed this, Zephyr1973. I didn't test the Emeraude parfum in the box, because I have it, but I also love the contrast of the bergamot and the vanilla-infused base. I would add...
  88. Re: Anyone know any thing about An Evening in Paris?

    I think vintage EIP is definitely worth a sniff, despite the drugstore pedigree. I'm not entirely convinced that is is necessary to look for vintage "Soir de Paris" bottles, Cook.bot, although it...

    Re: Sample Pass: Rogue Perfumery

    Thanks for the heads up, N.Cal. I enjoyed reading the post. I loved Manny's treatment of tuberose in Champs Lunaires so I will be interested to see how Flos Mortis turns out. Tuberose + leather...
  90. Re: Isobutyl quinoline infused modern perfumes, any recommendations?

    I love IBQ, especially in vintage compositions, but there are still good options to try in the current market. Along with Aramis, as Zealot Crusader suggested, you could try Estee Lauder Azuree. ...

    Re: Green Fragrances?

    I also love green scents, and I like them without sweetness. I'll put in another vote for Eau de Campagne, Silences, and Scherrer 1. I agree with Cacio that Eau de Campagne is "hard to beat" as a...

    Re: Elizabeth Arden 'Splendor'

    Hi RedElla

    Welcome to Basenotes!

    I always feel it is better to get an unreformulated bottle of the perfume you really want than to accept an imperfect substitute.

    Could you try searching...

    Wow! That's a fabulous thing. Just read the full post which I had somehow missed before. Thanks for calling attention to it, Cook.bot. PerfumeFetish's research is always illuminating, and her Patou...

    Thanks to some of the students at my university, I am very familiar with the smell of weed wafting from people and clothing, but I didn't get a weed note from Mousse Illuminee. It does have vivid...

    Re: Sample Pass: Rogue Perfumery

    Interesting to know, HauteParfumGourmand. I wasn't thinking that the original Coty Chypre would resemble later leathery chypres (Bandit, Miss Dior, et. al.) but that it would resemble mossy herbal...

    The lion with "robur" (vigor) on his tongue was a Bisleri trademark back into the 19th c. I haven't been able to date (yet) the color ad I posted but here he is in an 1899 opera playbill:

    Interesting to know, StellaDiverFlynn. I've never tried L de Lubin, and I tend to think of Diorella as sui generis, which may be inaccurate.

    Did you test the vintage or current? On Fragrantica, I...
