Worth– SANS ADIEU (1925)

I am reviewing a vintage bottle from the 1940s.

Sans Adieu is an extremely rich, deep chypre, which manages to be quite green and at the same time slightly sweet. I get no clue from the note tree as to the source of the sweetness, unless it’s a combination of the ambergris and musk. The galbanum is used judiciously to impart greenness without sharpness.

What is most impressive is the lavender/patchouli combination which is prominent in the heart. Again, there are no sharp edges, just olfactory depth and roundness.

This is so rich, so warm and comforting, that I would not have been surprised to find it was one of Weil’s creations for adorning furs. My nose detects a prominent civet note in the base that combines beautifully with the lavender/patchouli notes in the dry down.

This is quite unisex by today’s standards, equally at home with a strong woman or a very masculine man.

This is a great creation and the vintage is very worth seeking out. The 1995 re-orchestration would seem from contemporary reviews to have little in common with the original.

This is for the modern re-issue of Sans Adieu by Worth. Without a doubt it's nothing like the original because of the overwhelming dose of Calone (or similar aromachemical). A friend who smelled it compared it to Aramis' New West for Her. If you're interested in vintage fragrances, steer clear of this imposter.

Hmm, now this is very aftershavey.
In fact, it reminds me VERY much of Dior Eau Savage.
A bright lemony heart which persisted and grew on me in the wearing.
Might hold on to this one.
