    Nuit de Noel. Extrait. As old as possible; 60’s or earlier.

    Honourable mentions go to:
    Vintage Femme parfum (again, a 60’s vintage, for preference). This held my top spot for years and I can’t see ever being without it for the personal connection I have to it
    Miss Dior EDT. This has recently become one of my most worn vintages.
    Chypreish”:
    /ˈSHēpRAiSH/
    adjective
    (of a person or expression) to be desirous of an abundance of chypre.
    "Today, she was feeling chypreish”

    I can see some logic in this list. When you're wearing one of these fragrances, it's a bit of an event.

    I'm beginning to think YSL Rive Gauche... But also Egoiste CC is somewhere in this category too.

    Pretty much. I have worn the hell out of my currenf bottle before I began tracking wears or else it might have more than some others. Avon Black Suede is still tops but outside Avon this is my fave. I could stand to have one more bottle it hasn't started to "unicorn" yet so I've not been pressed to buy any more and have been exploring other things.

    Wearing the two side by side.
    The EDT scents as standard ES. The mixture has a definite toning down of some of the herbal, in particular for me Rosemary and Moss. Jasmine and Hedione are also less prominent. A little Oakmoss , Rosemary and jasmine Absilute bring this back towards the 70's and 80's. The 90's brought the refreshing breeze of Calone.

    The Deodorant Spray has a blast of Bergamot, however remains rather flat in evolutionan.. White Laundry Musk with a telltale suppressant that to smells like a whisper if the top edge of dried Pig's excrement powdered with Corn Starch, probably Saccharides. Not offensive, however monotone in profile.
    Much better for my tastes is to use the EDT as a deodorant.
    The review of these was carried out today with the Coffet pictured by AlanG. I haven't tested the Shave Cream as of yet

    I'm with Purecaramel.

    I've used Eau Sauvage edt since buying it years back. It's my most used fragrance.

    I live in the Fraser Valley. This is swine and maize country. Out of the livestock raised here Pig excrement seems most foul. I think it may be what they feed on. There is a defined difference in the top notes of other hoofed animals.Goats, sheep, cattle and horse manure have a different profiles that scent somewhat less foul to my nose.
    I think that detergents and sanitizers are used to clean the barn areas. I believe that deodorizers are used to suppress odors by using drying agents that I hazard to guess are saccharides likely produced from corn. They seem to be quite effective however what does remain is the top profile of excrement.
    Subjective. As always.

    Wow. Well, I guess I asked for that TMI, didn't I?

    But I do know what you mean about differences in manure smells. Horse manure has always had a weirdly almost-pleasant scent to me, probably because it's grassy. The poor pigs are probably living almost exclusively on corn products.

    It's not that I thought it would be an Avon, but I didn't expect Moustache would be "the one". It's also a favorite of Cook.bot, as I recall.

    I've got an EDC that I guess dates to the '70s. I just put on a drop, and it's just as I remember. Very good, and powerful. It reminds me of Christian Dior Eau Fraiche, but with the herbs dialed up.

    It sure is, but I never wear it because it just seems too manly to me. I only have a one-ounce bottle of the hockey puck cap, and should get a bigger one since, as ZC says, it hasn't gone unicorn yet.

    (I just reread that last sentence and realized how ridiculous it sounds -- contemplating a backup bottle of a scent I never wear.)

    Interesting! Never considered that. I should try a sideXside of those.

    I think the reason why it's my favorite, is it was my very first exposure to a "dirty" fragrance.

    Imagine being 20-something me, with a collection of 2000's aquatics like Nautica Blue and 90's freshies like Tommy Hilfiger (still have those), plus the Avon stuff which runs between oriental, aromatic or barbershop but still mostly safe, with maybe the most-vintage scents being my bottles of Polo Green, and Quorum (they're low and need backing up hence no wears logged). I had musks like Monsieur Musk/Monsieur Houbigant and Jovan, but they were still relatively tame to anything truly animalic. I had no concept of civet, castoreum, hyraceum, styrax, or jasmine indole, none whatsoever.

    Then I stumbled upon Moustache.

    It was just so f@#$ing different!!! Words can't express my intial reaction. The pissy lemon lime and civet over the dry herbs, woods, and oakmoss. I was repelled at first, but then the drydown turned into something I still compare to an original (discontinued) tan bar of Safeguard deodorant soap. It's the kind of smell that's clean, but isn't, sort of like covering an unshowered sweat with a tart eau de cologne like Imperiale, but adding in that mossy base I liked from scents such as Quorum, just stripped of all the density and left alone. This stuff lead me down the chypre and animalic rabbithole, and now I roll around in stuff like Joint, Kouros, One Man Show, and various scary ouds because of it.


    That's why this is my favorite non-Avon vintage: it "popped my cherry" for the scary shit, even if it's not really all that scary itself in hindsight. I also would have never discovered Eau Sauvage if I hadn't googled the perfumer for Moustache after being wowed by it. Thanks Roudnitska.

    You were baited.
    Earlier today you Kung Fu''d my challenge. As you are a true friend you received. " Subjective. As always."
    As a stranger you would have received "My own opinion is enough for me......."

    That is funny, and yet I can relate. Completely.
    Does my bottle have the hockey puck cap? It has one of those restrictor plugs in the neck, by the way.
    I love the aesthetics -- the name written with a brush, the hand-drawn look of the vertical stripes motif.

    Interesting! Never considered that. I should try a sideXside of those.
    At first it was Miss Dior, but then I thought, no, more like Eau Fraiche. Maybe it's that powdery quality that somehow doesn't read as talc, if you know what I mean.
