    That's actually a great format for this scent. I'm already doing some boutique plotting.

    EdH works really well in a shower gel. It's like you're getting dirty while you're getting clean.

    I remember when finding this shampoo, thinking of JTD and all his musings.

    Wishing I had purchased more of this early on.

    I wish I had gallons of it! I have a search alert set up for it, will buy wherever I find it.

    They really should have made EdH in a bar soap. On a rope. That would be a great format for it.

    Hello everyone. Lagerfeld Chloè today, a rich, warm floral grounded by mossy woods. For me, much of its charm lies in nostalgia for its era, when there wasn’t as much overthinking about perfumes (is it too old for me? too young? too much for work?) People just bought what they loved and could afford.

    Continuing with Guerlain, and today it's Guerlain Vetiver EdT. It's my benchmark for all vetivers; and this bottle is probably my favorite "version". I have the previous one, gold cap (small splash bottle) and it's got more of a tobacco note than I like. This silver cap is juuuuuuuust right.

    I'm on the same wavelength as Aero. It's cool and rainy here, my favorite vetiver weather. I finished off my silver cap bottle, but should get another as I agree with him that it's juuust right. The vintage version has quite a bit more tobacco in it.

    Paco Rabanne Pour Homme today.

    I'm going to shave later and use my PRPH aftershave balm, which makes shaving much more enjoyable.

    Crown Perfumery - Crown Stephanotis

    Most sources, including the BN directory, give the date for this as 1921, but Salts, Scents & Society says 1873, and as I've found a Crown Perfumery ad touting Stephanotis in an 1874 issue of the Guardian, I'm going with SS&S. I should note that I don't see any mentions after 1874, so it's possible it was discontinued and relaunched in 1921, or that an entirely different stephanotis formula was used then. However, it smells older than the 1920s to me.

    In any case, I can't find a proper pyramid, but this is no soliflore. Over at Fragrantica, user jenniewebb opines, "This perfume has a complex old-school vibe with the sharp and sweet note of stephanotis popped on top. The stephanotis is quite realistic, not sure about the mid and base notes, but the perfume is quite sophisticated…Edit. Today, in dry weather, I'm really getting strong heliotrope, powder and vanilla mid notes. What a difference the weather makes to this perfume! It's even more beautiful today than when I wore it in the hot and humid summer. Highly recommended by me."

    And QueenK13 writes, "Elegant and sumptuous spicy white floral. The composition is centered around a luscious stephanotis that is supported by jasmine, orange blossom and heliotrope (subjective, I’m unacquainted with the pyramid), a few drops of Nivea creaminess and slightly retro powder sparkles all over this bouquet."

    As I'm unfamiliar with stephanotis flowers, I'll take jenniewebb's word about the realism. Complex and old-school, I can confirm. I can likewise vouch for the heliotrope, orange blossom, and jasmine, and the spiciness QueenK13 perceives may be carnation. Too, there's some classic vintage magic stirring in the base.

    Not as edgy as Sarcanthus, Crown Stephanotis is still quite unusual, and constitutes further evidence that, in resurrecting old Crown formulae, Barry Gibson was as uncompromising as claimed.

    I'm wearing Warner Polo today, which I normally really enjoy, but I'm not feeling it today.

    Part of the problem, likely, is that it's following Ho Hang Club from last night. That's the stuff, Ho Hang Club. It's like 2.5 perfumes in one.

    Last night, I was totally getting the Boss No. 1 connection.

    Glad to hear that you think the same, in that it makes me feel like I'm actually making some progress in discerning how to identify notes in a fragrance.

    And that bottle in your photo is mammoth!

    I really enjoy reading your reviews of Crown's fragrances, makes me want to try more of their ladies offerings as well. I wasn't overly keen on esterhazy though.

    Thanks! I’d say Esterhazy is unisex—as it probably was back in the day—but it requires some serious lemon love to embrace the “Pledge accord.” You might find Ess Bouquet an easier wear.
