    Thanks! And thanks!! Oh, BTW, that particular razor is one of my favorite straights. It's a 6/8 half hollow Bengall. Gotta love Sheffield steel.

    Phew, somebody needs to counteract that cloud of Eau Sauvage in here today! Probably the main competition for Eau Sauvage in the '60s:

    Aramis (1965) by Bernard Chant for Estee Lauder

    (I'm actually wearing this to take some of the pressure off my dwindling Cabochard supply.)

    Ted Danson was its face in 1980. If you've ever seen the suspense thriller "Body Heat", he basically re-created this dance for a scene in that 1981 movie.

    Cook.bot, a cloud of Eau Sauvage is gladly welcomed today. Sun is shining, the weather is sweet...

    I’ll have to cool down before even thinking about Aramis!

    Didn't know Ted Danson was famous then. I saw him for the first time in Becker (lived that show)

    Christian Dior - Vétiver

    Vintage by dint of discontinuation.

    Clean and grassy, minimalist but with noteworthy twists of grapefruit to brighten the opening and coffee to <ahem> ground the base. I'm definitely a fan, but I don't know that I'd dole out unicorn prices for it with so many other good vetivers out there. Nicely done, regardless.

    SOTE:

    Santa Maria Novella - Acqua di Santa Maria Novella (1533)

    As audacious claims for veneration in the world of perfumery go, SMN probably has them all beat. SMN dates itself to 1221, when Dominican monks transitioned from vegetable farming to apothecary, tending to the poor outcasts of Florence. In 1533, as the legend goes, 14-year-old Catherine de’ Medici commissioned a fragrance from the monks upon her marriage to Henry II, heir to the throne of France. It was then called Eau de la Reine, and SMN claims it was the first alcohol-based perfume. It survives today (no doubt in substantially altered form) as Acqua di Santa Maria Novella. Take that, House of Creed!

    This is a vintage bottle, though perhaps a few centuries short of it by SMN standards.

    None of their bottles seem to name the fragrance on the label. Is it on the bottom per chance like how Avon used to do? Or do you just have to -know- what's inside by smell/color?

    SMN puts a sticker on the back of the bottle near the bottom with the name of the fragrance. If that comes off—as it frequently does with older bottles—well, good luck. Hopefully, whoever’s selling it knows what it is, as was the case for the bottle depicted above. The bottom would have been no help:

    For reference, the back of a more recent SMN bottle:
