ZIBELINE PDT: Everything I love about Zib is in this. Woody, Animalic, slightly sweet, Civet & Amber. Good longevity. Must add this to my collection. ;-)
Antilope: My thoughts are similar to jujys - 60s is buttery sweet, not much longevity - gone in 10 minutes. The 50s is by far my favorite. Stronger fragrance, sweet fruit/vanilla and light spices in the background. A heavenly fragrance with good longevity. I compared it to My Sin in my test & similar, MS has a tad more plum of course. 70s was a softer lighter version of the 50s and the modern one Aeroli was very diluted with just a hint of Vanilla and fruit.
Then I trumped this by taking out some others I had which I will include in the package: modernish (not sure what year) Pure Perfume Antilope - it is interesting because the 50s Antilope edt is almost stronger and much sweeter & they both had similar dry down & longevity. SDV Antilope bath oil - a bit of shoe polish in initial top notes mixed with the spicey herbs typical of SDV. Fabulous very long Vanilla Amber & spice dry down.
So that will make 6 ANTILOPES!
Padisha - Love this - Very strong sweet top notes, power house. Nice long dry down. I too had trouble identifying flower, thinking tabacco flower (nicotinia), some jasmine. It is a one note wonder & I can see the Vanilla Amber connection as well.
Modern SDV Aeroli - Uggh! I wanted to wash it off. Strong, but not in a good way. Jujy called it mentholated rose - Good comparison -Strong floral top notes (but not in a good way) and now all I can smell is Eucalyptus. Strong horrible MENTHOLATED dry down. I am gonna wash up. - - - Updated - - -

- a Robust Lemon & Bergamot on my nose with some lavendar. Reminds me a bit of the original Aqua di Gio & so tested them side by side Modern Zib Aeroli
- A pleasant surprise - top notes are full of amber and warm spices similar to the original zibeline. then it changes directions in the Dry down completely with a strong floral fragrance that keeps bringing to my mind Carnal Flower (Malle) for some reason...tuberose? quite nice and different. More complex than i expected.Weil De Weil
- Love this,, green & spicey, aldehydes in top notes & Oakmoss. Lily of Valley & hyacinth in the dry down.Zibeline PP Vintage
Whoa! Seems to have gotten really strong & sweet in the decant bottle. Camphor in the top notes with lite spices and apple. Finishes with Civet, musk,wood and floral sweetness. MUSKRAT LOVE!
Perfect for wet fur....LOL!
Great longevity & a nice finish once you survive the top notes.VTG SDV PP
Spicey Nutmeg, clove, with a woody amber civet and floral finish. No one under 21 should be allowed to wear this....very tantalizing.VTG SDV Zibeline Bath oil
Ditto everything I said about the SDV PP with some camphor top notes that leave quickly and that warm woody zibeline sweet scent mixed into spices and civet takes over. This could be worn by a Flapper in the 20s or a hippie in the 60s/70s.
Another very sexy brew in my mind at least....
Sex in a bottle....no wonder it sells for $900 an ounce!
