    Nice! I hardly ever see this get mentioned. Funny enough, I recently reacquainted myself with it just a few days ago. Easily my favorite from Yope. I owned a bottle years ago (along with Jump, Go, and Nightflight) but What About Adam got purged along with a few dozen other bottles in ~2011 or so. What About Adam was one from the bunch that I've always regretted getting rid of and I finally picked up a few minis last week.

    It's one of Calice Becker's first outings and, while still plenty potent, is quite different that most other fragrances from the house, in both volume and finesse. To me, it's primarily an almost aggressively fresh, tomato leaf-driven, green masculine - in a good way. Some parts of it seem at home in 1997 (the fresh 'masculine cologne' bits), others seem ahead of their time (the tomato leaf, the overall construction). A good deal of complexity but totally easy to wear. The tomato leaf/minty/grassy accord pairs really well with the citrus in the top, and with the fresh woody/mossy base.

    Totally fun and easy to wear, Becker does pretty masterful things in the way of taming potentially harsh attributes...and of course, starting to climb in price now that it's disco'd. Will occasionally pop up at sub-$50 for 75ml though. I think it's my favorite tomato leaf rendition in perfumery, beating out Eau de Campagne.

    You don't have any Cabochard?? We have to fix that. Although I don't have a clear idea of your reactions to all leathers.

    Calice Becker actually composed Avon HisStory (2003), and it's super green leathery fresh.. weird but good. Plentiful and cheap in aftermarkets

    That sounds fun, fresh green-leathery. She has a way with doing weird/quirky themes without making them unwearable. A talented perfumer to be sure.

    Something tells me there has gotta be a HerStory pairing to that one, right? A quick Google turned up nothing, just a 2014 Our Story for Her (and for Him). If there's not a HerStory I'll be sad - take that kitschy naming all the way, Avon!

    Thank you for that response. I agree with you. I also pick up a vanilla-like accord in the drydown. The fragrance has surprising complexity and depth, yet maintains an ease of wear. I like it enough to put in my collection but not at $100-125 /4.2oz. It's hard for me to come to terms with what FleeceBay is asking. I'd maybe swap something of that value. Idk. Good fragrance and easy to wear, like a LOT, but it also doesn't dethrone other ones or greats which is why I wouldn't pay the current asking rate. It's just not important enough IMO.

    Last night was
    Avon Topaze (1959)
    Launch-vintage pressurized atomizer. Wicked strong. Has top notes. Blessed be.

    Today is:
    Avon Charisma (1970)
    MKII bottle (mid-70's). MKI bottles have a gold plastic ornament on cap (easily broken). MKII bottles have cursive "C" on cap instead.
    A soapier, cleaner Jicky without the cinnamon. Civeted savon with styrax, amber, and a touch of tonka. Beautiful.

    With Vintage Extrait (a small sample I had) it held closer to the skin and developed slower. I could feel whispers of it's magic 6-7 hours. This EDC lotion, I have, develops quicker and I can slather on if I want. I recognize the Castoreum sooner. The Carnation pops out, closer to, however finer, than the EDT and Parfum of Contemporary. Overall It's pretty much done after 2 hours.
    I have a sample of Vintage 80's EDT that starts almost Adelehydic. Not quite as complex as the older stuff.
    The real treat for me, is a sample of the Vintage EDC, which opens quicker than the Extrait, however maintains the Leather whip undercurrent for about 4-5 hours. mixerscent, Scentastic have samples of this batch.
    Putting my nose to all, however, has me recognize just how nice Cuir Cannage is. It's Lipsticky cosmetic may be difficult for some men, however it really is stuff to have these days.
    Like you, I'd be willing to bruise my credit rating for the pristine un-breached, Deep Vintage, Parfum.
    Scarcity is an illusion. Unlearn it.

    I picked up a couple of minis of this elusive, magical, 80’s masterpiece... I’d put it in the top 3 for 80’s era of male perfumery.

    Default Your vintage SOTD

    SOTE is Basile Uomo Forte from a sample generously donated by epapsiou (yes, a genuine depapsicant!).
    Thank you, sir!

    I really like this one. It has a certain 'something'. Not a specific note, but something that creates a quite special and very nice touch to the aroma. Cannot put my finger on it yet. Almost a kinda semi-sweet mossy leathery accord.
    Longevity is impressive. It feels quite persistant.
    Must be explored further!

    Yes, a good one! I was surprised by it. I was also a recepiant of a dePapsiciant from Ole Papsi Van Winkle. Extremely generous. I was expecting a green herbal machine and then very surprised that once the citrus sparkle left off the top that it became an aromatic fougere that has a soft spice running through it. Longevity was ALL day for me. Good fragrance.

    Glad you guys liked it. It was dmitrios who told us about it in "Vintages I bought thread".
    I got it from Beautyencounter.

    I find it has the similar base as Tiffany for Men/Bugatti. Not as good but similar.

    Tiffany has that powder though. Even though I'm not a powder fan, I can handle the Tiffany and appreciate how very good it is. I've always been curious about the Bugatti. I know at least 2 people here love it. I've just never had the nerve to buy it blind.
