    ...Reminds me that The Rottweiler, a mystery novel by Ruth Rendell, actually features perfume prominently.

    Thank you Ciprian. No it isn't a new buy. I bought it a couple of years ago but don't wear it oft.

    SOTD is this new acquisition. Never been opened. The cap, nozzle and every single groove was bone-dry and squeeky-clean... O M G this smells good! This is hands down one of the best frags I have ever smelled.. Damn it's good! And it doesn't hurt that the opening smells like '84 Lacoste.

    Yessssss. Very good. Wish you lived closer so I could easily let you smell the first edition. Just for the experience. It’s a little different. I’m not going to put it in your head that one is better than the other. I’ll say that they’re both really good. And you may enjoy the version you have the best anyways. Enjoy that goodie!

    What a nice offer, Diddy, thank you! Don't really know the age of my bottle. I re-applied earlier and found that especially the opening is in fact much closer to Armani Eau Pour Homme, than it is Lacoste. Other than that, it is it's own elegant master. Beautiful.

    Just received, and I've fallen helplessly in love:

    Eau de Patou (1976)
    EauDePatou_125mlSplash_04.16.19_.jpg

    I've been trying to figure out if this is the "Pour Homme" version, as opposed to the tapered-cone bottle of the "Pour Femme". Information is kinda scarce, and sketchy. There's also a cylindrical bottle with a square cap that is a likely Homme version too, and I see that RoRo owns it:

    I have the one cone/tapered bottle, whatever it is, and smells it perfectly unisex to me, extremely citric, green, and bright, cut like a diamond. It retains that personality for a long time before moving into (still bright) white floral/soapy/powdery/mossy territory. Is that what yours smells like?

    Some of the comments indicate the "masculine" one (again, if it exists) has spicy elements, perhaps like Equipage. Mine is not like that.

    Yeah, that's where I found RoRo's bottle. Plus I scanned every blog review I could find about it. It's odd, nobody seems to really know if there's a true Homme or Femme version. And Patou didn't help, not marking the bottles one way or the other. I'm inclined to think the tapered cone bottles were marketed to women, (though I haven't smelled them) and the cylindrical ones to men. But that's purely a guess. Opinions vary on whether there's any real difference in smell, too.

    Parfumo has a great array of photos of the different bottles -- but no consensus there on which is which, either:

    Yes, for the opening, which is very much like Eau d'Hermes's opening. And I wouldn't say soapy or powdery for the middle; at that point I get a definite civet vibe, warm and human skin-like (but not sweaty). And there's oakmoss throughout the entire run, but soft and not bitter.

    Some of the comments indicate the "masculine" one (again, if it exists) has spicy elements, perhaps like Equipage. Mine is not like that.
    Defnitely no on the spices. And I've only smelled Equipage once, but I don't see get that association either.

    Oops, I saw you had linked to that thread right after I posted. Derp.

    Interesting about the Eau d'Hermes connection. I definitely did not get that association with my bottle. It does not have the same warmth, no cumin, not powdery in the leathery/skinscent way of Eau d'Hermes...more of a soapy-fresh powdery, and the civet is of the higher pitched tone type. Yes on the soft oakmoss. So maybe they are different! Or maybe we're just picking up different things. More investigation/side by side sniffing needed.

    I would have sent you some! Then you could have discovered it sooner.

    Since that thread, I've come to accept that the stuff in my cylindrical bottle is the Pour Femme. The smell is different enough from the tapered bottle edition -- and to my mind, more unisex -- that I got it into my head that it must be the Pour Homme. The tapered bottle is the one I acquired first. But make no mistake, they smell pretty similar overall. No doubt the Pour Homme is clearly a different animal. I never did get a chance to smell it.

    I regret commenting as I did on Eau de Patou in those old threads (I think there were two). It just muddied the waters.

    What made you change your mind?

    And what would account for the (slight) difference in their smells? Variations in formulae between bottle changes?

    No doubt the Pour Homme is clearly a different animal. I never did get a chance to smell it.
    If it even existed. And if it did, why in the world would Patou not differentiate them by marking the bottles and boxes? None of this makes any sense to me.

    Ha -- it could hardly have gotten worse than it already was. Nobody seems to know anything.
