Reviews of Capricci

I was excited to try this classic floral chypre, so I picked up a small bottle of vintage EdT. Unfortunately the florals are obscured by an overdose of soapy aldehydes. I don't like aldehydes much, certainly not as a dominant accord, so my experience was ruined. Not my thing at all.

This is also one of my favorites-light, but distinctive..very classy. People will notice a good way!

Beautiful..beyond description

Revisiting this wearing the parfum spray and it is HEAVENLY!!! Light and rich at the same time..smells expensive

My all-time fav. I discovered it in the late '60s or early '70s at the sumptuous cosmetics counter at San Francisco's uber elegent I. Magnin. I don't smell rose, but I think the rose acts as a base for this frag, captures its additional notes (Bergamot oil, Blossom-calyx Note, Leafy Green, Hyacinth, Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Narcissus, Orris, Rose, Tuberose, Ylang-Ylang, Benzoin, Moss, Musk, Sandal, Vetiver) and morphs them into a capricci of fleeting effervescent elegence, mystic, complex sophistication, and playfulness. Yep. I love this stuff.

This seems to be one of the fastest fading perfumes I own. Even my favorite Nina Ricci 'L'Air du Temps' doesn't fade this fast. When I wear perfume I want others to actually smell it. The nicest note on my skin is Rose. Vintage Victorian spice rose to be exact then after drydown a touch of spice and greenery. It has HG written on it if it was stronger especially the vintage rose and spice- the green notes should stay the same IMO. The bottle is lovely too, but I wish it had a glass rose stopper instead of a plastic one. I won't repurchase because of the lasting power.
