Fragrance Recovery Project: Pierre Cardin Centaure Series, Part 1
This is the first installment in a series of installments that I intend to undertake--not that I really have the time--of recovering information and cataloging such information about fragrances that seemed to have passed unremarked and undocumented. Much of what follows is confirmed and put together from personal knowledge, research, and deduction, so it's really a work in progress. Obviously any help to fine tune facts and details would be greatly appreciated, so please feel free to contribute. I have no information at all on the notes of the various fragrances in the series, and any information along these lines would be greatly appreciated. The ultimate aim of this, I hope, ongoing endeavor is to create a number of posts that will act as a fragrance recovery archive of sorts, which can then provide information to help Grant expand and refine the Basenotes database/directory and, of course, to lessen some of the work for him in the process.
The Centaure fragrance line by Pierre Cardin contains five fragrances based on sensual leather notes from the lightest to the most intense.
The order in which they appear below, is, I believe, the order of lightest to most intense. I have deduced this on the basis of the information I can't really reconstruct here, but, suffice it to say, it is part knowledge, part deduction.
