    Smile Charles Jourdan L'Insolent (Discontinued)

    Found this on eBay and my bottle just arrived today. Was looking for perfumes with oakmoss to try to build my knowledge of chypre. According to Basenotes, the notes areAlso found out this was made by Max Gavarry, the same nose that created the following:

    Dolce et Gabbana D & G Pour Femme (with Nathalie Lorson)
    Dolce et Gabbana D & G Pour Homme
    Gres Air de Cabochard (with Domitille Bertier Michalon)
    Halston Z-14 (1976, with Vincent Marcello)
    Montana Suggestion L'Eau d'Argent (1994)
    Paloma Picasso Tentations (1996, with Sophia Grojsman)
    Prada Prada Eau de Parfum (2004, with Carlos Benaim & Clement Gavarry)

    Anyone familiar with L'Insolent, and if so, what are your thoughts? I'm quite pleased with it so far (just tried it, one spray shared on wrists). I am beginning to get a feel for moss and I like it!

    edit: the bottle is a little strange. I have the 1 oz. EdT and the neck of the bottle is wrapped with a black plastic "shawl." The bottle is substandard but I'm liking the juice.

    Here is a link to a photo used in the ad campaign. I think the EdP bottle makes more sense of the black shawl motif. On the taller, narrower EdT bottle it looks a bit cheap.

    Here is a link to a photo of the bottle (not the one I have). I believe this is EdP.
