    Default X-Files: Vincent Marcello

    Yatagan, Halston z-14, Some Lauder's and then disappeared...

    I'd like to know more information about this misterious perfumer, a rising star in the seventies that suddenly disappeared from the industry.

    Any information, images etc are welcome

    Thank you.

    He came pounding on my door one night back in the day. Wouldn't stop pounding. Scared the household pets even. I told him I didn't care where the party was, that I was going back to sleep. Told him no, contrary to his baiting, I didn't smell dumb anyway.

    Finally shoved him down the building's stairs and into the damned Cutlass he was driving at the time (this was before not letting your friends drive you know) and he peeled out in the public garage and the car jerked side to side as I saw him through the rear windo punching the tape deck. Then Roxy Music blasted out the windows and bounced off the concrete pillars.

    Last I saw and heard of that bastard. He probably went off the road in the ditches on the way to Barstow. The highway boys probably put a little white wooden cross up at the spot.
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    Heck, I was only taking storyteller's license with that last tacky cliche bit about Barstow and the highway boys. I don't know really know where Vince went after my building's metal garage door closed back down, but plenty of the guys here might. Fool that Vince was he always seemed to leave his vinyl cassette "breif case" thing in Indie_Guy's Eldorado.

    DustB, are you serious that you knew this guy? He seems like such a maverick, but his output was really limited.

    Anyone? Whatever happened to old Vince? Who WAS this mad genius?

    I also wish I knew. His (as far as I know) three fragrances were very different but all positively perfect. Private Collection, Z-14, and Yatagan are all near the very top of their genres for me (Private Collection being my favorite green floral by far).
    My Top Ten:

    1: Guerlain - Habit Rouge
    2: Guerlain - Jicky
    3: Guerlain - Mouchoir de Monsieur
    4: Guerlain - Shalimar
    5: Knize - Knize Ten
    6: Caron - Yatagan
    7: Caron - Pour Un Homme
    8: Jean Desprez - Bal a Versailles
    9: Yves Saint Laurent - M7
    10: Salvador Dali - Dali Pour Homme
