    Lenthéric - À Bientôt

    Here, I can do no better than to crib from Grace Hummel:

    [FONT="]‘(À Bientôt)[/FONT][FONT="] was classified as a dry, heady, floral tobacco fragrance for women. It begins with a strong, cool, lemony eau de cologne top note and dries down to a rich animalic dry, tobacco leaf base.[/FONT]

    [FONT="]It was described in a vintage 1938 newspaper article as "the dry mellow aroma of sun ripened tobacco leaves, expressing camaraderie, and is to be worn with bright bravado."[/FONT]
    [FONT="]
    Top: aldehydes, lemon, bergamot, rosemary, lavender, neroli
    [/FONT]
    [FONT="]Heart: flowers, spices
    [/FONT]
    Base: vetiver, musk, civet, vanilla, tobacco leaf, sandalwood, amber, leather’

    So far, this description is on the money—and so is the fragrance. As disappointing as Cabaña and Tanbark were, so does À Bientôt exceed my expectations, at least in its stellar opening. Fans of vintage “butch” feminines like Tabac Blond, Cuir de Russie, and Emir would likely feel at home with this.
    Those Lentheric bottles and the way you describe the scents are very nice; thank you for sharing !

    I have no idea and can't compare them as I own only this bottle. I have seen some bottles like mine for sale on Etsy with vendor claiming that it's the 1966 version but I don't know if this is true ...

    Apologize for interfering. In the 60s, only the classic square bottles existed (I think) and with full info on the 8-sided "Aramis" bottle-label itself. On/within the label-frame underneath "aramis" it said "estée lauder inc. dist. new york, n.y., u.s.a." (something like that).
    I've only ever seen one or two of these 1960s bottles in my life (yup, eBay)

    Lentheric Cabana

    our SOTD:…and not much to it. Light, dry, and vegetal, like eau de celery and wilting flower. Hoping my SOTE will be better.
    I’m wondering if the fact that this is labeled “Lotion” should be considered—this Cabana is probably less concentrated than the “Bouquet Lentheric au Parfum.”

    I find the vintage perfume ads funny, nostalgic, and yet still compelling. Before libraries began pulping their bound volumes of old periodicals, I spent many happy hours in the stacks looking at old magazines when I should have been doing my (real) research.

    For example, the tagline for Lentheric’s Dark Brilliance has lodged itself in my brain and now makes me want to try the perfume...

    Languid splendour set to fragrance

    It means absolutely nothing, and yet I want to wander the house evincing “languid splendour.”

    Check out this ad...a wonderful photo and those huge vanity bottles that mimic the shape of the Dark Brilliance flacon.

    You are welcome to interfere, Marand ! As I said, I do not know how old is my bottle.The label says ARAMIS, E.L.,DIST. Made in England . As often, vendors claim this type of information (I refer to the 1966 date) in order to "justify" a high sale cost !

    Fahrenheit Summer

    Sampling for the first time. Not sure the purpose of this one, to be honest. It smells like the original, just not as intense - a "lite" version, if you will. Still nice, though.

    I'm a fan of Fahrenheit Summer. The extra citrus in the opening is nice. But then it does go away too soon.

    Oh, that’s not even a question! The Cabaña lotion is 72°, whereas the bouquets are generally @80°. But Cabaña is super rare, and while I attribute the weakness to its concentration, I wouldn’t enjoy that scent in any concentration.

    OTOH, see my subsequent review of À Bientôt.

    …the tagline for Lentheric’s Dark Brilliance has lodged itself in my brain and now makes me want to try the perfume...

    Languid splendour set to fragrance
    That can be arranged. I’m pretty sure it will appeal to you.

    And, yes, those ads are terrific. I especially love the black leather evening-gloved fist bedecked in costume jewelry next to the phrase, “the daytime fragrance.”

    Interesting. I did not detect any extra citrus in the opening of the Summer sample. However, I did just layer it with some of my Fahrenheit Cologne which has a wonderful citrus opening.
