I came across a bottle of Oscar Blue tonight, which was going cheap. I'd never seen it before, so I asked for some on the back of my hand. As she did so, the lady also sprayed some on a sample paper, saying it was an old scent.
I smelled it on the back of my hand, and said that I really didn't like it at all. She smelled the paper and said "Umm, it's not that bad", and held the paper towards me - and I sniffed it, and it wasn't that bad. I held the back of my hand to her nose, she sniffed it and said "Yuk - it is bad on your skin".
On my skin it reminded me strongly of the bilge component in Sécrétions Magnifiques.
Six hours have elapsed since I put it on - and it smells nearly as bad now as then.
Has anybody else come across this scent? What did you make of it?

Well, no one seems to have heard of this scent (or if they have, they don't want to talk about it).
I just want to report that three days have elapsed since I sprayed it on the back of my hand, and despite several showers and general washing - I can still smell it on the back of my hand!
Now that's remarkable - so I have.
Shame I don't like it.
