Vintage Extract Of Mysore Sandalwood by Crabtree & Evelyn.
Wearing this rare vintage juice today for the first time. It has a distribution date of 1983 on the bottle.
Well first impressions are that it is very fresh and a bit floral with what I think is Ylang Ylang and with this a strong blast of Sandalwood came out and it was natural and very impressive. Underneath the floral freshness is a lovely buttery woodiness. It's light, fresh a bit floral with a natural buttery Sandalwood note. This is the most natural smelling Sandalwood I have smelled in a fragrance.

YSL, La Nuit de L'Homme
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
