    Default Jardanel - Jean Desprez ?

    I was lucky enough to find an extrait of this rare fragrance.
    It is stunning...in a green, leathery way.

    It's hard to find information regarding this dark horse. Release dates vary enormously. Basenotes states 1973. Fragrantica says 1917. Parfumo admits there is a lot of confusion regarding release dates for this, but goes on to say that it was re-released in 1973 as a limited edtion and cites 1938/1942 and 1944 as possible release dates.

    Judging by the design and simple style of my flacon I would err on the on the much earlier release date of 1917.

    If anyone can shed more light on this amazing perfume I would be very grateful !

    The 1972/73 relaunch was reputedly created for Stanley Marcus, head of Neiman-Marcus and author of the aptly named autobiography, Minding the Store. Because that relaunch was orchestrated as a retour au classique, the somewhat pear-shaped flacon of that version looks more retro than its true vintage.

    Would love to see a photo of your extrait, if you could manage it.

    Google images shows me mostly what I assume is the 1970s relaunch, a bottlle shaped somewhat like a grandfather clock.

    I have a photo of it on my desktop. I've clicked on 'insert an image from computer' but I can't work out how to do it. If you can explain I will try !!! (I'm useless with computers).
