    I couldn't agree more. Never found a Balmain I didn't like if not love.

    As for unsung chypres, Ted Lapidus' Creation is very pretty, summery and bright for a chypre. It starts out pretty potent, but that goes away fast and leaves a lighter longering chypre. I wouldn't wear Mitsouko to work, but do not hesitate with Creation.

    Zib, I agree with you -- Creation is my long-time partner, I have even had a Teaser about it (#61, if one were to Search). However, it has a very lush honeyed tuberose heart and NONE of the people I shared it with, liked it. I have had about 80ml of Creation to give away last December on ubu's Freebie thread, it finally went after two weeks, nobody wanted it (a person who took it does not post here very often, so I have no idea whatsoever if they like it or not). I have some left here, of course.

    Teddy Lapidus is a real life brother of Rose Torrente-Mett, with parents of Lithuanian origin, and he has got a nice fragrant portfolio. Fantasme -- toothachingly great oriental with raspberry and vanilla, Creation The Vert -- quality cologne with green tea and apple, plus a few more.

    Thanks for bringing it up.

    FF, I al excited to try that PEcksniffs. A simple green chypre sound like it would hit the spot right now!

    I agree:

    1. Balmain de Balmain is terribly unsung, especially as a masculine, and...
    2. Creation is a masterpiece. A total classic, killer chypre like Mystere, and not hard to find.


    Now, do you all know about Paco Rabanne's weird little foray into total eccentricity called XS Exterme Girl? It was a 'limited edition' XS flanker, by Buxton that is all about thick sour-sweet tobacco over hard core, SM leather. It's insane, really; and genius. I think Etat has been trying to accomplish this scent for years, but not yet 'gotten there'.

    It has some of the nineties milky-heavy custard base that Theorema, Accenti, and O indecence have, but it's another beast entirely.

    It also reminds me, in it's 'sweaty', 'stewed-fruit' top bit as well as it's incense, of scents from this century like Aziyade, 1270, and Theo Fennel's Scent.

    But ultimately, it achieves more than any of the above-mentioned scents, in terms of raw 'allure' and majesty, and is probably the single sexiest spicy-modern-leather-Oriental.

    Anyway, I see men loving this one due to the heavy leather.

    I have withheld it from this thread while my friend Bookshop bought all that she could find on earth, but now I beseech you, if you see some in a tired, old shop... or online, buy it. You won't regret it.


    Oh, and the bottle is great, heavy and nice.

    a scent made by buxton, with tobacco, leather and spices, and it can't be found.

    so did I, not shipping to Turkey though.
    thanks for the notice though. I've seen it before many times, but didn't even bother to check reviews because.. well, it's an XS flanker in a pink box that has girl in the name... Who would have thought!

    I'll keep my eyes open in future

    I got a bottle of Creation recently -it seems nice to me .Also recently bought Quartz and Hiroko Koshino.
    Should mention another I'm semi-stocking-up-on Spark by Liz Claibourne .Very nice vanilla amber oriental ,not very expensive(yet) but getting harder to find.I've got to second the Pecksniff brand -I bought a bottle of hand soap called Festive (spices and fruit) it smells so nice I'm tempted to use it instead of shower gel .It would probably layer well with Accenti or Coco or maybe Oro.

    I'd love to! I am PM ing you now.

    As for my impulse to buy frivolous fragrances, it hardly needs a boost.

    But I would like to say, tath I started this thread becuase I assumed people would want to know about the 'lesser-known' scents I have and love.
    I never intended to launch any buying sprees! I am innocent!

    I loved the thread and learning about more good perfumes!
    It's so exciting to learn about new perfumes and try them out, in this way. I was this close to giving up on perfume because I kept trying all the new generic flowery releases in the shops. Some smell horrible, some smell ok, but almost none give me the ''waw!'' effect I love with a really suitable perfume.

    Here's one I never see mentioned: Popy Moreni. Although I don't wear it often anymore, preferring crisper, greener scents, it has a coffee note that I just adore. It's warm, sweet, cozy and sexy and can easily be found online and on eBay.

    I enjoy reading this thread, not because I want or need to buy more fragrances, but because it is nice to know that there are other people taking pleasure in sniffing what I like(d) -- this last post is another proof that my Teasers were NOT in vain -- Popy Moreni had its Teaser too, it was # 64 (there were Teasers about Balenciaga Talisman, Valentino Vendetta, Joop! Femme, Hiroko Koshino, it is just to name a few mentioned on this thread).

    OK my fragrant darlings, this thread has been going on almost a year. Thank you HILLAIRE and THREE CHEERS FOR YOU and bookshop and Twolf and anyone else who chimed in sayin' OH yeah! That is good juice! Who knows how many gorgeous new additions to our wardrobes we have acquired ( and how many sales have been made) due to this geneous sharing of information by all.
    Just one thing- I was getting crosseyed scrolling back and forth ( did I get them all on my list? Is this a repeat?) So I made a complete list of everything mentioned from POST 1 to NOW. I'm posting below before we find more unsung treasures LOL!

    Please look over and PM any spelling correction to current list- Later, I'd like to add a little description for each and also do another version by House. Maybe we can use this as a tool with sellers---"Look baby,don't try to sell me any of your silly inspid scents- we want Quality Scents Like These"

    Ciao and smoochies fellow fume fans.

    OOPS Forgot to mention that I added La Mome by Balmain to the list. The handful of members of the "La Mome Fan club on BN" will support that, I am confident.

    Holeeee Mary Mother of Jesus! WOW, Knit! That is amazing! And it's such a great list of unusual scents.

    I propose that when we add new stuff, we also add it to the list Knit made and copy it.


    I have always thought La Mome was underrated; you know it's as good as a lot of watery, niche roses, which get a lot of praise.

    I am bidding for a vintage Jolie Madame right now.

    So what's La Môme like? Off-scenter said it might considered to be related even to Tocade, which is a fragrance I loathe from the bottom of my heart, but rose, amber and mhyrr sound good...

    I get no Tocade at all, which is all sugar and vanilla and grit; to me it's a slightly woody rose. Really thin, but not in a bad way. It's like that L'Artisan rose very much, Voleur de Roses, but not as 'refined'. But for what, 15 bucks? It's a good daytime rose.

    Thank you all, ok, that's a relief, and like Hillaire said, for 15 bucks, although I don't see it quite thàt cheap right now.... I'll get it in America, because it's a lot more expensive to buy in Europe. At the moment I have the best of both worlds .
    Knit-at-night, I did read your review, in your review it sounds appealing.

    La Perla always draws compliments. It's so gorgeous and womanly -- not feminine in the way that's traditionally understood, but sexy in a strong, mature way.

    This thread has been the greatest.

    I've acquired samples or decants of the following because of it:

    Miss Arpels
    Lilith
    Sinan
    Action
    Anthracite
    Firenze
    Oro
    Opera 3
    Escada

    and bottles of

    Talisman
    Chapeau Bleu
    Gabriela Sabatini
    Parfum Prive
    Moods
    Pheromone

    Here's one I discovered this week. A big 100ml bottle of Histoire d'amour by Aubusson for $20 at Winners (Canada's TJ Maxx). I took a chance and am so glad I did. I just read Hillaire's review in the Directory and she's right on. A truly beautiful scent that reminds me quite a bit of Jacomo's Silences.

    Original Bijan is underrated, and I'm also a fan of Yendi by Cappuci

    Speaking of Bijan, for those of you who don't yet know, he passed away yesterday.

    OOPS Forgot to mention that I added La Mome by Balmain to the list. The handful of members of the "La Mome Fan club on BN" will support that, I am confident.

    Nina Ricci Phileas

    This is a rare gem! A sadly discontinued fragrance of immense beauty. Phileas is quite a complex composition that opens with a considerable amount of aldehydes, citruses and juniper for an overall effect that is at the same time stark, freshly-green and almost powdery. Patchouli rapidly makes its appearance joined by other spices (a light cinnamon) coniferous notes, leather and tobacco. In this phase Phileas reaches its peak of beauty with its perfect balance between the classic powerhouse style and an incredibly sophisticated elegance. In the drydown I get a lot of resinous notes (labdanum), pine, and cedarwood laying on a slightly metallic amber. Compelling and unique.

This is a very rare fragrance, so if you're lucky to find it, don't miss the chance to get it.

A masterpiece.

    Tonight I want to share another affordable vintage scent that is worth its weight in gold.
    It's Yves Rocher's Pivoine.

    This is a bright aldehydic floral, with a decidedly green personality. It's closet to Calandre, but has its own very distinctive personality. It has a very soapy freshness about it, too; and by soapy, I am refering to the sort of clean, soft soap JLo's Glow smells like, and not the nose-searing fatty aldehyde note the bigger aldehydes use, like Madame Rochas.

    I find it entirely timeless, and I imagine anyone who loves scents like Chanel 19, Calandre, and Rive Gauche would be ecstatic to wear it.

    This is a total five star vintage, which can be bought for under fifty dollars.

    Wow, this is amazing. Out of control wonderful. Knit, you are fantabulous

    I did not see Eau de Fleurs by Nina Ricci an absolutely essential summer floral for me. Light, wearable, aldehydic floral, but not the make you feel faint type.

    This is a total five star vintage, which can be bought for under fifty dollars.
    Yes, i adore this scent which i have with most of Yves Rocher vintages ...this one is closest to Anais Anais Cacharel 's vintage scent,i could say alike :Here's what i have from Yves Rocher :


    I always enjoy buying vintages from Yves Rocher and i 'd like to thank Bookshop88 for sharing many Yves Rocher's vintages with me

    Cheerful and playful scent with beautiful raspberry note. Sounds pinky-girly, but it's not.

    NafNaf by NafNaf
    Another treasure for those with a sweet tooth. Synthetic? -Yes, but perfectly balanced.

    Essence Pure Pour Femme by S.T. Dupont
    Absolutely unique fragrance with elegant floral composition and ambery softness. Amazing longevity and projection.

    L'eau de Kasaneka by Menard
    Absolutely gorgeous "green oriental" in a beautiful bottle. EdT is kind of weak, but EdP is just perfect.

    Dear Sophi,
    Are you sure you don't mean Magnolia is closest to vintage Anais Anais? I find those two to be almost identical. To me, though, Pivoine is very different from AA... Hmmm....

    Nice treasures, Sophi!

    Magnolia is closest to older Anais Anais on me too.

    How could we forget to put L'or de Torrente on the list? Do I have concurrence on that one before adding???

    Wearing it for TWolf's B-day made me think to check the current list....

    I love the Apparation bottle. It looks like it should be lucite. I need to try it again because I can't remember what it was like.

    And I looooove L'Eau de Kasaneka! A Basenoter sent me a decant of that. It really is gorgeous.

    I also enjoy reading this thread for the pure enjoyment of it. I have bought Quartz by Molyneux and J. del Pozo's In White. I love Quartz, but I'm having a hard time with the jasmine in the other. I had the same problem with Murmure. Sometimes it loved me, and somtimes it made me feel queasy.

    So unforgettable, we forgot to mention it before now. Will fix.


    @ lilybelle I got a similar reaction to Murmure, and I can only do In White in small doses.

    Dang it! L'Eau de Kasaneka's notes looked really good on FG

    A couple of more recommendations:

    Bleu de Chine by Marc de la Morandiere - gorgeous floral chypre with a hint of spice




    Michelle by Balenciaga - beautiful and full-bodied raspberry chypre, I don't know why but I smell raspberry...

    I also don't see original Genny.

    If you accept humble perfumes here, I'd suggest that Covet is a perfume that has gone down to dime store level but its quite good.

    And some of the much despised Avon perfumes are good, best maybe Rare Gold and Absynthe.

    As far as Avon concerns many vintages from Avon are great treasures like:

    Casbah:http://i.ebayimg.com/24/!B5RC,y!EGk~$(KGrHqUOKisEyZpfQLuSBMs74!kO8g~~_3.JP G

    Volupte by Oscar de la Renta. I just tried this, and although quite floral it certainly is underestimated judging by the prices on ebay.

    How about Niki de Saint Phalle the artist's one and only scent? An iconic 80's chypre, it still has many fans, even for the vintage body creams and bath oil.

    Commonly listed on eBay as "Saint Ralle" LOL!

    I admid I detested this when it came out. I wasn't woman enough for this mean green, aromatic chypre queen, back then

    Love Volupte and Niki. The parfum and the cream are spectacular finds. As for Avon's being "despised", not by me, at least not some of the oldies. Forest Lily, Avon's DvF scent is still beautiful and I still enjoy "Here's my Heart" a 1957 lovely floriental heavy on the lavender and orange blossoms. It is the only scent that ever caused a guy to follow me around campus back in the 70s. Sigh. I wish they'd bring back the old gems and dispense with the trendy jazz.
