    Default Need help identifying mystery parfum! - Solved! Thanks!

    I bought this little bottle form a yard sale full of mostly empty vintage bottles from the 40s-70s.





    The initials are the only mark on the bottle. I can't tell if it says "JM" or "GM."

    The fragrance itself is nice; it has a good amount of civet and leather, and reminds me very very much of the drier base of very old Shalimar Eau de Cologne; there is no vanilla to be found in this, though. The leather is definitely the same leather that's in Shalimar and Habit Rouge. A very dense composition overall, and very hard for my nose to discern. I get a powdery, woody feel that may be iris and vetiver.

    Thanks for the help!

    Thank you so much! I've compared it to Royal Secret and that's definitely what it is, though it's mighty different these days - the ingredients in my little bottle are of a pretty high quality. Interesting how I perceived leather and civet when it was probably green notes and rancid hyacinth, haha!

    I'm wearing this now and it's just lovely. I don't like it as much as Shalimar, but it's definitely a great fragrance, and the drydown is abysmally powdery.
