    Default Whiff from Vintage Zino

    The whiff I get from vintage Zino from few hours since the initial application is absolute divine. Is this coming from a single note or combination of notes?

    I have a bottle of the vintage Zino, and I agree it's a great fragrance. I think it's a nice combination of notes, but I feel like the patchouli is one of the more prominent notes.

    It is the perfect blend of mainly rosewood, patchouli, sandalwood, lavender and vanilla.

    Can fully agree about the divine outcome/development after applying this fragrances, especially as vintage.
    And while getting single notes like rose, sandalwood, leather-civet, some exotic spice as well, it is the extremely crafty blend between these notes, very smooth, streamlined, complex and luxurious, that fully showcases its greatness.

    Yes--I have the Lancaster version and the notes are perfect. I always think that there is a slight headshop vibe to it--could be the patchouli--which keeps it from being too well-tailored and stuffy. Now I regret not wearing it today!
    Very clearly a case for corn flakes and classics

    I have a bottle of the original which truly is wonderful. I think it must be a combination of notes.
