It used to be the "hippies" perfume in the seventies, but I do not remember exactly how far it smelled different from today's.
Concerning Knize Ten (which still is one of my male favourites), I find the female equivalent is Tabac Blond (or vice versa). I am lucky to own a
1 oz. bottle of the pure perfume, which I bought in the 1980s, and which I am jealously guarding for fear that the bottle might get empty ... It's perfect for an evening out in a jazz cellar.
You may have noticed that I am a great enthusiast of the old Caron fragrances. This time of the year wearing Nuit de Noel perfume every other day is quite appropriate. This is another great chypre.
I'm delighted to report that she loves Bandit!
Thanks for your help, everybody, and Merry Christmas!
Happy to hear that it turned out even better than I dared to hope! Thank you.
Season's greetings and best wishes for the New Year to all the BN forists!
Niki de Saint Phalle is a possibility. After a start of galbanum and artemisia, it is a magnificent reconciliation of the rose and the green on a peerless chypre platform (can you tell I like this stuff?). I guess this is, too, my sign to revisit AE, which used to smell like Black Flag on me (decades ago).
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
