    Default Re-discovering a true Gem : "OLEG CASSINI" EDT for Men (year 1976)

    Ladies and Gentlemen!
    Here's to you one of the greatest -and elegant- powerhouse scent from the Seventies !

    OLEG CASSINI for Men (Italy, 1976)


    Oleg Cassini (1913 – 2006) was a French-born American fashion designer of Italian-Russian origin. In Italy studied Art and Design, before moving to New York and Hollywood.
    Oleg Cassini dressed numerous stars creating some of the most memorable moments in international fashion and film. With his designs for Jacqueline Kennedy he garnered admiration and even awe, for American fashion design.
    Oleg Cassini’s designs for the First Lady, ‘The Jackie Look’ are recognized as being the "single biggest fashion influence in history". His motto was "To be well dressed is a little like being in love."

    OLEG CASSINI Eau de Toilette is discontinued and not too easy to find but, incredibly, still cheap.
    You can find this true perfumery JEWEL at affordable prices.
    If you can, grab at least a bottle without hesitation.
    ATTENTION: there are at least two more versions: a bottle produced by Jovan (year 1979), and another version launched in 1994.

    Top Notes
    Green Notes, Fruit Notes, Citrus

    Patchouli, Hay, Geranium, Rose, Honey, Vetiver, Jasmin

    I used to love that stuff in the '70s, but that's not the bottle it was in back then.

    Remember well when it came out. Personally never cared for it.

    I don't think the 1994 version has anything in common with the original.
    The former is an icy floral, and still available.
    Ce message provient du Québec!

    Oleg Cassini for Men could be descrived as "Gentleman-Givenchy-lost-brother"
    Anyway some reviews are here, all positive, of course. Great scent!
