    Default Mitsouko Lovers will either love me or hate me for this...



    Gather round me pretties... I have just returned from the Big Bad Fragrant City and managed a quick stop in at Aedes in the Village...

    my news is this:
    Apparently Molinard in collaboration with Aedes has opened up an archived chypre formulation and will be releasing a limited number of bottles of this new and gorgeous perfume.... called "Une Histoire de Chypre"... I just spoke with Karl and he told me it is ON THE WAY, they will be putting it up on their site soon...

    Here's the rub

    It is the closest thing I have ever smelled to capturing the essence of my vintage bottle of Mitsouko parfum.
    Perhaps a bit less smoky, more veil like, but my, my, my, ladies, if you love Mitsouko, this perfume is going to be a must have for you.

    I was swooning and sniffing myself all the way home on the train.
    Keep your eyes out for this...it will take your breath away. Classic. Gorgeous. Chypre. Knockout.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    I believe the presentation will be in a similar bottle to the ones pictured here:

    and will run about $225 a bottle...

    my gift card is already spoken for by Voleur de Roses and Fleurs d'Oranger. no more room at the GC inn, I'm afraid.

    But this frag will ease the pain of your eBay loss...and the decant will nicely fill out my collection.

    There is one small problem with a true return to classic chypre perfumes, purplebird 7. A defining note in any classic chypre is oakmoss absolute. Perfumers have their hands tied when it comes to using this delightful ingredient. The Powers That Be have declared it taboo for being an allergen to some people. One more time the masses of people who have absolutely NO problems with it must bend to those few who do. The same is true for orris absolute. Wouldn't a sane person think that simply a statement of contents would suffice? But no, everyone must pay. Even though our grandparents did just fine with oakmoss, orris and many other wonderful things in both men's and women's fragrances. As a perfumer, this pisses me off. We do have synthetic oakmoss, but it really doesn't hold a candle to the real thing. I hope that this collaboration of Molinard with Aedes is blatantly breaking the "rules."
    Put me down as a great fan of Mitsouko, btw ;-)

    Definitely in for a split, folks...If my ears did not deceive me, Robert may have mentioned something about a limited quantity of about 400 bottles in the first lot.
    --------------------------------------
    Okay, here is the note pyramid as per a phone call to Robert this morning.

    Top: Bergamot, Mandarin
    Heart: Jasmin
    Base: Oakmoss, Patchouli, Galbanum

    Plus, I am correcting the spelling...I believe the correct spelling is Un Histoire de Chypre with the Un being masculine.

    Bottles may arrive as soon as tomorrow. Newsletter will be sent out upon arrival.
    Now, I discovered the original spelling of Une was correct. Silly me.

    As most of you know now, I've offered to run the split. Renee is pretty busy and Dimples is over the border in Canada. So if we can all ignore the daftness of shipping back and forth across the country, I'll get a move on and get details to everyone as they develop.
    --------------------------------------
    Okay, jumped in with both feet. I ordered two bottles and they should be heading my way on Monday.
