    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Crown Perfumery - Crown Court Bouquet

    The one review on BN begins, "This scent now called Crown Bouquet…" Well, no. Those are two different fragrances. Crown Bouquet is one of Crown's inaugural scents from 1872, and according to some sources is the same as Crab-Apple Blossoms (on which more when I get to those). Crown Court Bouquet is widely reported to have been formulated in 1882, although SS&S says 1875. I've got nothing else to go on, and the seven year difference doesn't much matter.

    A "court bouquet" was, like an Esterházy or any of several others, a loosely standardized fragrance type of which each perfumery had its own version; Atkinson advertised one as far back as 1837. One of my 19th century perfumery tomes has a recipe consisting of bergamot, neroli, orris root, styrax, and musk; another says a court bouquet features verbena along with a mixture of violet, rose, and jasmine. Perfume Intelligence describes Crown Court Bouquet as, "a classical aromatic feminine fougère edp with notes of bergamot, lemon, lime, basil, armoise (wormwood), mint and moss." When I said "loosely standardized," the accent was on "loosely."

    Fragrance blogger Stephan Matthews says Crown Court Bouquet "opens with a citrus medley of bergamot and lemon, although a touch of lime joins with galbanum to give a green brightness to the scent. This gives way to notes of jasmine and heliotrope—imagine the scent of a Guerlain lipstick—before an aromatic mossy base reveals itself. These traces of mint and lavender, possibly from the artemisia, help to keep the fragrance intriguingly green. With a silky finish of sweetened cedarwood, a dose of tuberose, and even a dash of animalic civet, Court Bouquet is a wonderful example of a bygone age."

    MakeupAlley reviewer Ellizam writes, "Crown Court Bouquet is, to the best of my ability to parse, jasmine, heliotrope, cyclamen, sandalwood, mint, leather, galbanum. Its gestalt is aquatic floral mixed with sweet heliotrope over a very light leather and wood with a light green top. I'm very much reminded of Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca, but minus the lily of the valley and plus a sweet heliotrope and leather/wood scent. It's pretty, soft, elegant, surprisingly modern, and has subtle sillage … I'm picking up a leather/wood in the base, while [Perfume Intelligence] lists "moss." This makes me wonder if PI's "moss" is in fact de Laire's Mousse de Saxe…"

    To my nose, CCB opens tart and dry, and what I take to be the leather Ellizam picks up in the base has a flat, almost plastic aspect. (I doubt it's Mousse de Saxe: Crown was one of the first English adopters of grape alcohol for perfumery, as was the French practice, in place of corn alcohol, but I don't think they used any French bases.) So far, not one of my favorites from the house, but we'll see if it develops further.

    *

    The flat leather note went away, leaving faint traces of something like Terre d’Hermès minus the iso E super.

    Thanks. And I like how you say, "....perfect in so many ways". This is one of those fragrances that I often ask myself, "why don't I wear this more often?" It's that good.

    Does it really smell like Rainbath? I love the smell of that shower gel, and should sample Touch if it's a dupe for it.

    Crown Perfumery - Crown of Gold

    c.1910, Crown succumbed to Francophilia and pitched this as Couronne d'Or, selling it in a fancy crystal flacon for upwards of what would now be $500/oz—another detail Clive Christian nicked from Crown Perfumery.

    Perfume Intelligence declares it "a classical soft oriental edp with crisp green top notes, heart notes of floral accords of ylang-ylang, rose, tuberose and jasmine; on base notes of patchouli, musk, amber and oakmoss."

    Ellizam at MakeupAlley elaborates, "Crown of Gold thrums with dark, slightly sandalwood and patchouli (old, classic patchouli, not the thin sweet modern wretchedness), and there's a strong mid-section of clovey/spicey eugenol and ylang-ylang. Literally, Crown of Gold is all mid and basenotes; its topnotes are the rich jasmine and sweet rose combination…complex and lovely, a fragrance that moves through stage after stage in a wearing. It's got amazing lasting power and strong sillage, and some of the stages I've gotten have been deep, smoky wood, dry wood amber, smoky wood with rich spice center, powdery wood with dry jasmine, cozy jasmine and rose laundry-ish drydown, and classic warm amber base. Gorgeous."

    I wouldn't say it's all mid and base: there's a nice green top that puts a gentle sheen over the more powdery florals. But this is definitely not a top-heavy perfume. It's also not my style, but no less lovely for that.

    Furyo, Jacques Bogart. 1988. Ron Winnegrad.

    Great scent ! Yesterday, I wore Iquitos; the longevity of this one is tremendous: 12 hrs + one night, and I still could smell it on my wrist.

    Continuing with Guerlain, and today it's Jicky EdP (current version). I also have a sample of vintage Jicky EdT that I have on one arm for comparison. I like this current EdP better. I use to have a sample of vintage extrait, and that was THE best; alas, it's all used up.
