    Default Your vintage SOTD

    Something a little fun for the opening of the vintage forum. No need to start a new one everyday, but a fun way to share.

    Today I'm wearing Guerlain Heritage EDP from 1993, one year after release. While the latest versions of Heritage are still fantastic, the vintage is one of, if not the most, beautiful fragrances I have ever smelled.

    My scent of the evening is Original Egoiste, from a splash transferred to a travel spray. Divine.

    Creed - Zeste Mandarine Pamplemousse for today. It's quite nice while it lasts, which isn't very long.

    Yesterday was one of my all-time favorites: Jacques Bogart - Furyo

    Hooray for tdem joining the thread!

    Update: For the evening, I've transitioned to original Bugatti edt, from a sample. I'm still getting used to it, but the previous wearing had me in its grips during the dry down, and shopping for a bottle.

    Started the day with Dior Homme (it's "vintage," but not really vintage), and ending with Maxim's Pour Homme.

    Nice, very nice.

    For me today on my day off the stand by, Paco PH from the early eighties. Received a couple glances at the store (not the good kind of glance) which made me smile.

    Editing this so I don't repeat post,

    what I like about Basenotes..... Versus things like Facebook groups is its not about the newest most expensive fragrances. Some of the best smells ever come from days past. I love all good smells but I definitely slant toward vintage with old ingredient styles versus what some call "modern" scents. When I hear that I cringe as it's usually said in a derogatory way, if they only knew you don't have to spend more to get more. You just have to read, search, amd smell.

    Yup! Great stuff, as you know first hand. Wore it in honor of purchasing more Furyo from a BN splitter who also happens to have great taste in cartoons lol

    Vintage Antaeus. Fantastic.

    I actually got a compliment on Bugatti last night, and I had to agree.

    Today I'm in Habit Rouge eau de cologne - a second-hand 30-ml bottle. It's nice. If I burn through this, I might check out a vintage edt next, while supplies last. I've seen a couple Basenoters praising the vintage edt version.
