Reviews of Milord

There is one review of Milord.
D'Orsay Milord is, according to Grace Hummel, "classified as a zesty floral chypre oriental fragrance for women." I'm not sure by whom, but it's an apt description. She lists the pyramid thusly:

Top notes: aldehydes, lemon, orange, basil, lavender, bergamot, "fruit note"
Middle notes: nutmeg, mint, black pepper, cinnamon
Base notes: vetiver, ambergris, woods, oakmoss, patchouli, vanilla, musk

All this is present in fine but somewhat understated form in the EdC. It blooms more brilliantly in the extrait. Either way, wonderful stuff.

As with a number of d'Orsay fragrances, there is some confusion about whether this was originally a masculine or a feminine due to the trademark image of the Chevalier (which even threw some retailers back in the day). However, per d'Orsay's own ads, it was definitely launched as a feminine, though it is now easily unisex.

It was discontinued in 1952, and is not amongst the d'Orsay fragrances relaunched in the 1990s (or any of the subsequent relaunches). In this age of draconian materials restrictions, I doubt there'd be any point.
