Thread: future vintages

  1. #1

    Default future vintages

    i dont really know that much about perfume in general and even less so than vintages. as far as i understand the perfumes that we now refer to vintages are back from a time 20,30,40,50,60 and on and on years ago before when perfumes started to get severely regulated as to what ingredients could be used. and these perfumes made back then because of their ingredients have lasted longer without going off or bad.

    my question is do we expect perfumes made in the last lets say 5-10 years to last as long, 10-50 years without going off or bad as well, considering that they dont have the same ingredients as the ones we presently consider vintages referred to above?
    whats that stink?!

    Honestly they'll probably last longer because synthetics do not break down on their own quite so easily as naturals, so stuff made now will probably last hundreds of years if kept air tight and away from heat or light.

    The strict regulation of ingredients is an experiment of sorts, but that's probably exactly how things will pan out.

    Or skin, which is probably the best practice for most of it.

    The everlasting norlimbanol monsters of today will probably be dug up by the neo-cavemen of the next millenium and found to be perfectly intact.

    Synthetics make stick around longer but in another 10 years who knows - perhaps we will be able to scientifically determine the exact original composition with extreme accuracy based on the signatures of chemical remnants, and then chemically print fragrance indistinguishable from the original, functionally making the term “vintage” obsolete. Writing this from my tardis.

    It has all the makings of a Creed legend.

    Well stated and agree.
    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.

    Apollo Creed discovered Norlimbanol in 1492.

    Yep, that’s along the lines of what I was thinking. Apollo Creed - I saw what you did there!

    Every bottle of Aventus that I buy each day is already a vintage by the next day.

    More seriously, nothing from the current available retail / chain fragrances interest me apart from any that dare to go past IFRA regulations. Pure oud oil is your gold / platinum as it's value will go up with more environmentally active controls coming to many countries.

    Some batches are becoming closer to the price range of Vintage Tabarome if not already so.
