    There are so many good ones among the offerings as I own the entire line. Special thanks to Basenoter Prince Barry for pointing out this house to me years ago. I'd suggest Vetiver Royal Bourbon, Chypre Mousse and Gentry Jockey Club to start.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I like the Violettes du Czar. A robust manly violet, no shrinking or blushing. A scent from the era when violet was considered unisex but leaning to masculine.

    All the Oriza scents I've tried have that aura of long lost luxury, of belonging to a time when people had plenty of time.

    And do try the soaps! Great quality for the price.

    +1 for Vetiver Royal Bourbon, Violettes du Czar and Chypre Mousse. I also own and enjoy Deja Le Printemps.

    Need to revisit Czar du Violettes. Iirc it has a strong slug of cheap candied violets.

    I feel the same way. Peculiar isn’t it? It’s as though they were composed by ancient perfumers long gone.

    I absolutely love Relique DŽAmour, Rêve dŽOssian & Vetiver Royal Bourbon; a very nice old-style perfume house.
