    Milord EDC.jpg

    D'Orsay Milord EdC


    Milord Extrait.jpg

    D'Orsay Milord extrait


    D'Orsay Milord (1911) 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.

    As with Trophée, 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), but, 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.

    This seems to have been d'Orsay's stock EdC bottle for a time—my Trophée EdC bottle is identical. I'm not sure exactly which years, but it was featured in this ad from 1935:

    Milord Ad 1935.jpg

    The illustration has what looks like a glass stopper, which suggests my bottles are from a bit later.

    Guerlain Vol de Nuit EdC

    This is a vintage sample, generously sent by PStoller (thanks again!) from a few months ago. This is the second time I'm using it, first time as a "full wear". I also have a sample of the current EdT version, and just out of curiosity, I gave it a spray on one arm to compare.

    The current version is more powdery than the EdC and quite fleeting - lasted maybe an hour (of course, it was just one spray) - meh, not for me. However, the EdC, I have to admit, I find intriguing.

    The EdC took a little while to "warm up", but warm up it did. What I mean is that upon initial application, it had a brief hit of alcohol, but subsided almost immediately. It also had kind of a plasticy/rubbery nuance - sort of reminded me of drinking water from a garden hose back in the day - for about 20 minutes before it dissipated. This isn't the only fragrance that I've detected that note - I wonder what ingredient(s) is responsible for that? Anyway, the dry down has been very nice indeed; although a skin scent now, it's been very detectable for the past 3 hours. For me, this is what I call a "comfort scent" - no real projection, but a nice scent bubble for my own enjoyment, and quite calming actually.

    Nicely written. My preference is for the higher concentration of VDN but the lighter stuff is nice too. I received a sample of vintage EDT sample from Dr.Tricia which ended up developing into a really nice drydown.

    It would take a Thierry Wasser'ing to resurrect this with rectified oakmoss and proxies galore but it could be done and be respectful if nothing else a la Jicky and Mitsouko, but who would buy it? Purists would cry it isn't "the real deal" and condemn without a trial while all the clout-mongerers in the YouTube/Instagram cognoscenti would scream "dated" and "won't pull compliments" etc. You'd have to target the postmodernist hipster segment that likes styling themselves after past modes of beauty and is okay buying replicas to do it. That ship sailed 2010-2015ish or so methinks, outside sales of Pabst Blue Ribbon.

    Superb, spicy sandalwood, made with the good stuff (a stick of which marinates inside the bottle). Again, they don’t make ‘em like they used to, because they can’t.

    It's finally cool enough to give this mini a full wear. I had previously given it only a test run when I first got it, and although a wonderful scent, it was quite fleeting. However, today, with a reckless splashing with abandon, and a couple of sprays to the undershirt, I find this to be magnificent! Yes, I might even go so far as to say that this in right in my wheelhouse. A perfect fall weather fragrance!.....BTW, having researched the threads about the different versions, I believe this mini to be the first version. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable can help out. One thing I can say for certain, is that I tried the current version in the black bottle last year at a U.S. airport duty free shop and it was so fleeting that it was gone before I even got to the gate.

    Maderas de Oriente shows up sporadically, though rarely inexpensively. The extrait can fetch a fortune—I haven’t yet acquired any—but the performance of my cologne is quite good, and that bottle should be big enough to last me.
