SOTD: Bulgari Black.
After being a shut-in for a few days because of a brutal cold, I finally had a chance to get out to the Flea Market where I found some interesting vintage fragrances:
1. Caron Bellodgia (probably from the 60s)
2. Givenchy Ysatis extrait /parfum
3. Yardley English Lavender (probably from the 50s): This opens a lot like Caron Pour un Homme with lots of fresh lavender and vanillic coumarin. Settles down pretty quickly into a quiet, lightly creamy lemony-lavender (though the lemon does seems a touch harsh--). This stuff has been around since 1873 or something, and it's pretty darn good for such an accessible and inexpensive fragrance...
4, Vintage minis of Drakkar Noir and Halston Z-14. Yup, I decided to give the Halston another try, because at first sniff this vintage juice smells more complex than the new stuff I bought recently. I assume there's been a reformulation, so I'll see how it works on my skin. And the Drakkar Noir because...well just because.
I also stopped off at Aedes and picked up samples of the new Lubins: Akkad, Galaad, and Korrigan. I'm looking forward to trying these out...
