Nina Ricci Signoricci (1965/1976) Green Citrus
•Top Notes: Bergamot, Galbanum, Green Notes, Lemon, Petitgrain •Middle Notes: Carnation, Lily of the Valley, Mandarin, Rose •Base Notes: Amber, Cedar, Civet, Labdanum, Moss, Tonka Bean, Vetiver
Green and citrus notes in the top, with a slightly metallic vibe on my skin. The base notes are not in evidence much at the very beginning; they do come out after a little bit, but the sillage is not very strong. This is a kind of skin scent, and would probably do well in warmer weather. There seems to exist some confusion over various formulations, but the bottle I have (and its box) look exactly like the picture for the original formulation in the Basenotes Directory.

Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.

Red for Men
Jovan Sex Appeal aftershave/cologne For Men.
Here's what the it says on the box so you guys can understand:
Now you don't have to be born with it.
This Provocative, stimulating blend of rare spices and herbs was created by man for the sole purpose of attracting women. At will.
More than the usual promise in a bottle. It's more like a guarantee.
Splash it on your face, your neck, your chest. The more you use, the better.
Because it is truly Sex Appeal. (And man can never have too much.)
Sex Appeal by Jovan.
For the first time in the history of the world...
We bottled it."
Perfect writing for a You Tube review too. It tells you you'll get the chicks, tells you how much you need to use, tells you how to apply it. Tells you it's never been done before. Tells you you'll be transformed like having a wish granted by a genie ("At will.")
And I'm wearing it today. Step aside and let the man go through.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
