Park Royal by Crown Perfumery (1929)

  1. odysseusm
    Top: lemon, neroli, eucalyptus
    Mid: clove, ciste, nutmeg

    These comments are for the Crown Perfumery version (vintage) not the Anglia version in the Basenotes directory.
    Another site gives these as the notes:
    Eucalyptus, neroli, lemon
    Green grass and spices
    Nutmeg, cloves, cardamom

    Citrus giving way quickly to a gentle spice. Old school. The warm spices are freshened a bit, probably by the eucalyptus.
    I am not a big fan of clove but the note is very well done here: earthy, "dirty", peppery dry.
    Not at all like bay rum.
    Masculine and enjoyable to wear.
    Haha no conifer or even anything green here but I want to comment on all my Crown bottles.

    Still cold weather here -- time to revisit a powerful vintage scent, loaded with green and spicy notes...

    Lovely and fresh up top, with citrus and cool notes. Takes on a green note, somewhat sweetened by rich spices. The woody spices deepen and take on a burnished tone.
    Very enjoyable in cool weather. Again, I want to note that these comments are for the vintage, original Crown Perfumery version. I have not been impressed by the Anglia reformulations.

    Let's revisit this old-school classic... tomorrow's review.

    With a vintage scent like this, it is fairly certain that the spices will have endured. The question is, how about the citrus and fresh notes? Will they still be effective? The juice is a burnished gold, rather like Scotch. A spritz reveals that there are some minty notes from the eucalyptus, and lemony tang. That lasts for an acceptable time, and then the scent settles into a gentle spice glow. It is powerful stuff, one spritz is enough for me.
