    Inadvertently in synch with Chanel N°5, 80's vintage EdP, I remembered to wear it now that the weather is perfect and brings out that smooth, soft, powdery quality that reminds me of fur in it.

    Looks like Chanel will do well today - No.22 for me.

    Joining Milou in Bois des Îles (1926/Les Exclusifs), so, I'm in synch, too!

    I think I'll empty my sample of N°22 (1922) as my SotE, since I have some
    more coming my way!

    Thought I'd post this over here as well to spread some love for this relatively unknown scent. It would work excellently on a woman, too!



    Figaro by Lubin.

    A fig scent that I can tolerate? A fig scent that.. I actually like? Yes. This scent is excellent. The fig is not a huge player and sits alongside a wonderful deep apple note along with some plum and a hint of melon, and all of the fruits are wonderfully juxtaposed against a warm, dry and woody vetiver note. The opening is momentarily fruit but quickly becomes rather green with a fresh grass note and a gentle pine note as well. The grassy note is wonderfully done - it is green and fresh and almost dewy thanks to the fruits and sappy fig in the background. I'll need to wear this some more to better understand it, but I must say that I can already tell that it is excellent.

    Longevity seems to be average while sillage is quite mild. That's not particularly surprising though as the whole thing feels quite natural.

    One phrase in particular came to mind while smelling it (not sure exactly why, must be the apple accord's influence and that wonderful grass note!): garden of eden at dusk.


    edit: I get a nice but relatively weightless labdanumy amber note in the base, too. Coupled with the dry vetiver and the hints of benzoin (used to extend the apple nuances), it calls to mind Ambre Sultan of all things. Figaro is far lighter and less dense/syrupy, though. It's also not nearly as sweet - I wouldn't call it very sweet at all, actually. Actually, the labdanum accord in the base is closer to the way labdanum was used in Aziyade and also F Black by Ferragamo concering it's "weight" - or relative lack of, in this case. The odor profile of Figaro is still closer to Ambre Sultan than either Aziyade or F Black, though.

    L'Aimant is lovely! I prefer it to N°5, in general, it's warmer, a little dirtier and a little less prissy. N°5 really sings in snowy weather, though.

    Good Morning All. I love these nostolgic scents. A favorite of mine, worn by my grandmother, mother and myself is Coty's 'EMERAUDE' first intoduced in 1921. A favorite beauty product, and still in production after 75 years is the Coty's airspun face powder, it not only out performs the high end manufactures, the lovely scent transports me back to my mother and grandmothers vanities. Have a great day. )
