    Ah, I see. Interesting that he's just now getting credit for the 1973 version. That little essay from Elena on the Houbigant site was interesting, especially this part:

    This was to be the perfect harmony and assured taste with no audacity, or transgression but the passion of the years before May, 1968. In realizing my dreams, I had to demonstrate the years of workmanship I had acquired. I was going to do so by composing Essence Rare.


    What do you suppose he meant by that "before May 1968" stipulation? Is he alluding to the cultural upheavals of France in 1968, and assuming that after that time the old traditional standards in perfumery no longer applied?

    I assumed it was something along those lines, though it might coincide with his personal “lost innocence,” as he turned 21 in 1968.

    Balenciaga Pour Homme (1990)

    A great way to start the new year.

    As an aside, this has become a ridiculous unicorn in price (pushing against Parfums de Marly retail prices at the highest), but there are definitely worse ways to spend a few hundred bucks.

    Lovely, HoP. I don't see it mentioned a lot. I had a sample of Chant d'Aromes from Perfumed Lady, and had cravings for a full bottle.

    I had a little bit leftover from mom's old bottle. I might have a little more to wear another day, in another atomizer, stashed, somewhere...
