    Wow - everyone is so decisive! Well, I hope you don't mind but I have several in my #1 spot.

    Deneuve
    Gucci No1
    Gucci No3
    L'Arte di Gucci

    the original Calvin Klein for Women
    ...and that's just a small sampling among many more I'd love to see brought back in their former glory.

    But I have all these plus back-ups, so that more than answers your title question, but considering I don't have a bottle of the original Charles of the Ritz, I'd probably go for that one if I ever ran across it. However, although I covet it the most at the moment, it's never been my #1 favorite ...your question isn't quite as simple and straight-forward as it seems, lol.
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Fufu, nice to see you back.

    Inoui too. Plus CD Diorella (I have kept looking for the "right" one for several years now!)

    I'd probably find it too juvenile to actually wear today, but I still long for Calyx as it was originally created by Prescriptives. Ahh the 80's....

    Givenchy III. I'm seriously in love with it, even more than with Gucci No3 and KL.

    I tried it today.

    Very nice but not up to the cult status IMO.

    It's a very safe perfume. Very good but safe at the same time.

    It's almost 180• of everything he did after it.

    Reminded me a bit of phileas but swap the lemon and herbs for rose and moss.

    for swap/sale:

    This might sound really plebeian, but I'd like to smell Occur! by Avon again. Je Reviens is not discontinued, but I'd like to smell the EDP from the 1960's (it would remind me of my mother).

    Fendi pure perfume, I have the EDT and it's a piece of work

    I know it's been re-released, but I loved the original Venezia.

    Oscar Tropical by Oscar de la Renta. Not fancy, not exciting, but a memory.

    Madeleine de Madeleine, in the weakest concentration. It came in a tall rectangular glass bottle, and I wore it throughout college.

    Would also like to know what Demon by Raphael was like -- my tiny bottle from an ebay lot is quite age-burnt.

    I used to wear Charles of the Ritz back in the day.
    One of my all time favourites back then was the original Femme by Rochas, and Hermes by Hermes

    I have a bottle and a half from the 90's, willing to send you a 1/3 oz spray if it allowed now...shipping is such a hassle with all the new laws. I'm in USA. Pm me please.

    Oh me too Kewart. Wore it at school. I would love to smell it again.

    If I could have anything I would like;
    Fougere Royal from the classics.
    A good quality bottle of my first fragrance, Helena Rubinstein Heaven Sent.
    The original Fendi.
    The original Armani for women.

    and a little sniff of Coty Chypre.
