    I know, Cook.bot. I was merely responding to N.Cal Fragrance Reviewer’s post, which begged for a Beggin’ Strip kind of reply.

    Hi folks-

    My little bottle of Godet Petite Fleur Bleue arrived, all the way from France:
    D01BC9BC-5B82-4999-AC80-7B87D0F6CB68.jpg
    After a quick test, I believe this may be the EDT formulation, but it is fresh and potent (with an internal plastic plug) and I find it true to the parfum included in the pass. No idea of the date, but it could be from the 1950's, during the brief postwar revival of the house. Quite happy to have this. It's reminding of Coty Paris (1923) and I plan to compare them when I have a chance.

    Very nice I'd curious to know what decade this bottle design is from. Perhaps some research can be done to narrow down the scope of which types of bottles were during certain years. I'm sure one of the blogs that discussed and displayed dated the bottles will give us some insights. Looking forward to your comparison review.

    In my research, I've found no similar bottles on the blogs or in vintage magazine digital archives. In the 1920's, Godet did not seem to spend very much on magazine advertising as compared to, say, Houbigant. A much older glass topped flacon with the same label appears on the current Godet site.

    Although I did find a flacon/decanter that had the same logo which is listed as 1960:

    Very cool photos, N. Cal. Thanks for posting them, The first Etsy vendor is the source of my little bottle (and she has more than one). I agree with the approxinate date of 1950, but I would have liked to find some independent confirmation of this. The other listing says 1960, which would suggest Godet was in action for much longer in the postwar period.

    What would also be helpful is searching if other fragrances by Godet were also available in those years: 1950s or later.

    Is this pass still on the road? If it gets stretched out just a little longer, it'll hit the 2-year mark. Would that be a record?

    Zephyr1973 should have received the package yesterday. Unfortunately, I mixed up two boxes of samples at the post office, but Zephyr1973 and PeachieOs kindly reshippped and sorted things out.

    There's a lot left to try in the Mixerscent box so it should continue for some time more.

    I look forward to reading your impressions.

    Could I ask what you think of DHI? Are you smelling a newer or older release?

    So, my DHI is a 2017 - I had been under the (mistaken) impression the trade was for a 2011, hence my willingness to let my Guerlain Encens Mythique go! But, in truth, it smells divine on my husband, and it's a keeper.

    If anyone would like to do a sample pass and would like some 2017 to compare with older batches, I can "donate" 5-10 ml

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Now on to the BIG SNIFF!!

    I was really excited when N.Cal contacted me to participate - some of these I have had in my collection, some I have wanted to sniff for a while, and others, I'd honestly never heard of!

    Today I tested two that were familiar in various formulas and decades, and I have owned both at times in their various formats and from several different decades. That was a mouthful, but it's late and I wanted to get started - please forgive grammatical nonsense!

    Chanel No 19 - So, I have owned nearly every version of this (EDT, EDP, Parfum, and even the Poudre) and my favorite is the pure Parfum. I have recently given my sister my 2018 bottle of No 19, as I really prefer the earliest versions (1970's) with he big chunky glass dauber. I prefer it as it presents with far more rose than the newer as well as a healthy (and gorgeous) dose of jasmine - and if I'm not mistaken, all of Chanel's Parfums/extraits are still produced in Grasse, whereas other formulations are often produced today in NYC. IFRA has since restricted the use of several components to the original, and while the current formulation is nothing to sneeze at, it is not as "complete" as its predecessor.

    Chanel Cuir de Russie - I sold my small bottle of this last summer; it was not because I no longer liked it, but it was because I was truly wanting the earlier version I had stupidly swapped with a lovely BN'er (you know who you are LOL!). I could not reconcile the newer and "brighter" facets with the older, more "cozy" desire I get from the very old stuff. I think our dear Camel gave a very good description, and it would be redundant to say too much more - but suffice to say, Chanel CdR VINTAGE is definitely a worthwhile hunt - it is so rich and cozy - like wearing a fur coat and drinking brandy in a forest of birch trees - knowing your beloved will be undressing you soon.

    I will try and review more than two samples tomorrow - again, thank you for allowing me to participate!

    Zephyr1973 you should try the original formulation. IMO it's the best - the iris and vanilla are the most potent.

    These are great reviews I'm actually looking for a vintage bottle of No 19 myself. I really enjoy the concentration from this pass as well as a 1970s EDT sample. Which is one more wearable to you?

    CDR perfume was really good. I'm no leather person but this stuff is quality. It was brought up that this kind of fragrance would be an excellent fragrance for a resurrection for Rouge Perfumery. Manny Cross should consider a vintage style leather based scent.

    If I were willing and able to spend whatever it cost, I'd find the earliest 70's version of No 19 PARFUM - it is just exquisite!

    Had a migraine today, so no sniffing...

    Both vials of Homage Red Box 2nd Ed. and Rose (TRO) were empty upon arrival, however I did sniff each vial, and have to say that:

    Rose (TRO) is delightful - and exactly like the Turkish Rose concrete I had, after I used org. grain alcohol to extract the gorgeous scent for wearing. If I had any left, I would gladly have sent some to the sample pass group - but I used it all or gave it to a really good friend. It does make me want to get more concrete to make the perfume again, though! Absolutely gorgeous!

    Homage red/2nd is really nice - bright, and green is mu initial impression. Without being able to wear it, I have no idea of how long it lasts or if it changes with the dry-down. But I really REALLY like it - and would love to have some to place on husband's neck...

    Turkish TRO was already empty when I received it. Both tributes (red and black) and Homage should have something left in them unless they leaked out. Those vials don't contain the attar oils really well I've noticed. Once the that inner white seal gets damage, the leakages begin to occur.

    There were several that are either terribly low in volume, or completely empty. It's ok, though - I'm just excited to be able to test some stuff I might not otherwise have the opportunity.


    GODET 1920's
    Chypre - A gorgeous leather - mossy, warm forest floor with less "wet" than some chypres. This is a forest in autumn, riding in a high-end leather saddle. There is a warmth in this scent that I don't recall in Coty's Chypre. I wouldn't mind if a bottle of this feel into my lap.

    Cuir De Russie - Iris and leather! So nice! This is not as creamy as I would have liked, but still, really pretty and very wearable! Again, if this showed up in my wardrobe, I would NOT be unhappy!

    Petit Fleure Bleue - well, I knew going in that this was all about the pretty blue-ish/purple-ish flower that has caused me so many migraines. That said, I chose not to induce another pounding in my brain, so I cannot comment on it, but if heliotrope pleases you, and doesn't cause you massive pain, I'm guessing it is lovely.

    Coty Emeraude Parfum 1950's – Vanilla, very creamy, resinous, with a thread of bergamot running thru like a cool stream. Dry down makes me think of rice pudding! I admit to being very surprised – I had always considered this a “drugstore fragrance”. This vintage redeems my previous low opinion.

    LF Iris Gris – Since there is only a drop remaining, I chose to simply sniff this one – I consider myself a HUGE iris/orris fan, and while I will pay a pretty penny for an amazing iris, I don’t believe this is one for me. It is so sweet – too sweet. I feel a cavity coming on! I don’t get any iris/orris. Maybe I should have sampled on skin, but I’ll leave that drop for another to try.

    Parfum Satori Iris Homme – oooohhhh! Now THAT is some lovely iris/orris! Goodness! This is really nice – I believe I know what I’ll hunt next time I have the funds! I cannot keep my hand away! Easily unisex.

    Shiseido Nombre Noir – This is lovely – vetiver/rose combo with aldehydes! Good grief, this is beautiful – There is also some sandalwood and orris! This is a “happy” scent.

    Ormonde Jayne Black Gold – I have owned a bottle of this, so I chose not to take any of the tiny bit remaining (the sealer cap is actually IN the bottle, and the plumber’s tape was soaked – I’ll do my best to re-package) – I love this stuff. Until I had a large bottle of clary sage to use for aromatherapy, I did not realize how much was in BG! It is so wonderful, and clear – and then there is the OUD, the Sandalwood and the pink pepper! So rich – has some association for me of a Roja Dove sample I had, but cannot recall which one.

    Interji Adghal ( Adghal Majid Muzaffar Interji ) – Ok, so it’s a rose and oud composition (not sure if there is anything else). I like it, but I have a love/hate relationship with barnyard oud, and this is (so far) not feeling the “love” part. Does last, though!

    Habit Rouge EDC - oooohhh! I have never tried the vintage of this - and it is so much different than the more recent releases! Rosy-lemon goodness on a well-kept leather saddle! How gorgeous! Dry-down reveals some vanilla, but not too sweet. Possibly some cedar wood. Really classy. Also unisex.


    Vol De Nuit Vintage - I had a vintage of this in the quadralobe, but this is really better - and sadly, I do not know if my bottle was older/newer than this one. A gorgeous galbanum BOMB! Very similar (in my brain) to vintage Balmain Vent Vert. Better than Chanel No. 19 (I think I just spike heresy!). The rose is the star - green and after a good rain. I'm smitten.

    A loud rose note in Vol De Nuit Vintage?? You don’t say. Say, I don’t remember a rose note in VDN parfum extrait, but I’ll take your word on it. Oh well. It’s no big deal. *shrugs*
    Your post tonight is VERY much appreciated, Zephyr1973. Thank YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wonder how many frags I changed my mind about so far. Let me see......Before signing up, I swore I’d buy a 2nd bottle of one non-vintage frag, UNUM Io non ho mani....., got sidetracked and moved on to other and better obsessions. Hee hoo, I simply lost interest. Then there was the reissued LIU. Same story, lost interest, hoo hee. That’s the nature of the game. Then what? I don’t know.

    This is great because I’m on a big Creed kick, and 2 are on my radar, and I’m not changing my mind about these two!! Woo hee.

    Sorry! I know this is the vintage forum! Back to my original point. Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (Will be purchasing Mitsy edt backup and vintage L’HB edt. Again.)

    I'm so glad you enjoyed this, Zephyr1973. I didn't test the Emeraude parfum in the box, because I have it, but I also love the contrast of the bergamot and the vanilla-infused base. I would add that all of the Coty vintages I have tried are outstanding. I think you have to go for pre-Pfizer era bottles to appreciate that Coty was marketing perfumes of exceptional quality in the first half of the 20th century, (I know folks say the Pfizer era bottles are still good but I have been somewhat disappointed in the ones I've tried.) Coty perfumes from this era (Emeraude, L'Origan, Paris, L'Aimant, Muguet de Bois...) measure up very well against vintage Guerlains, to which they are often compared, usually only to disparage Coty. I'll happily take vintage perfumes from both houses, thank you.
