    Default My Havoc arrived this morning!!

    Last week I won a bottle (well canister really) on e-bay
    of Mary Quant's Havoc. I used to wear it in the 60's -
    as did everyone and their dog! It was sooooooooo
    brilliant spraying it on and being transported back to the mod
    days of my youth - Carnaby Street, the first Top Shop
    opening, hot pants, mini skirts, the Fab Four and all that jazz. The silver
    canister with the black daisy on it is really iconic.
    This scent was created by Guy Robert (of Caleche, Madame Rochas
    and Amouage Gold fame) and it does bear some of those scents
    hallmarks. It's a green, alhehydic chypre with soapy,powdery floral
    notes at the heart. So far it's lasting very well (2 hours) and I can't wait to
    see if anyone from my generation recognises it on me.
    There is still some for sale on e-bay u.k. for about £14 if anyone is interested.

    Kewart, I have always wondered what Havoc was like. The sixties was a great time for scents - greens, powder, aldehyde - love that combination. Congratulations on your find. It sounds like it smells exactly as you remember! The name is wonderful.
