I remembered that you had said you didn't like it. I know what you mean about the "celery" smell, although I perceive it as a kind of bracing vetiver-y, transparent incense liqueur (like if the weediness of vetiver was removed and a light incense grafted on....)

This is definitely a strange one; it's weirdly both there and not-there for me. I especially like the dry down where I find it to have a mellow sweetness that's not cloying at all, like the natural sweetness of a fresh red pepper when you least expect it (not that it smells like red pepper...) Best of all, this is like catnip to my wife, so that's a big plus!

It's a well-made fragrance for sure - to me it kind of "glows".

Today a lady brought me a bottle of Kouros that dates back to 1992 - now that is some stinky stuff! It reminds me of Muscs Koublai Khan.

What the hell, I don't have any ladies who bring me bottles of vintage fragrances! There are some people here who have sent me very generous samples of things though. But there weren't ladies.

Speaking of ladies, I am wearing Womanity now that the evening hours are upon us. I bought a ton of this stuff when it first came onto the market, but then I decided I didn't like it as much as I thought I did. So I gave a lot of it away to various people. FWIW, this is my mother's favorite perfume!

PureDistance M - probably shouldn't have blind bought this large split I have, as I have trouble getting past the first 30 minutes or so of the oakmoss/kitchen spice like vibe, but the jasmine that follows is devine!

It is really extraordinary, one of those fragrances where you can smell the quality immediately. It's not quite my style, so I don't wear it much, but I'd definitely recommend it. (I think it's something you would like.)

Very true. I also think that the style is not quite me, but the blending and overall quality of ingredients is superb. I have been told the sillage created by this is better than any other I have ever bought or sampled.

"Glow" is a perfect word for it -- there's definitely a kind of luminescent quality to it...

Just got a bottle of Vintage Eau Sauvage EdT, so I'm wearing that today.

I just want to say that this is *ridiculously*good, and waaay better than the reformulation (The opening of that stuff smelled like chlorinated swimming pool on me...) I am starting to worry, however, that I'm turning into a fusty old codger with this vintage perfume obsession.

It can only end badly...satisfied.gif

Do you know when Eau Sauvage was reformulated?

Late 90's, early 00's IIRC

Talk about Puredistance - M always makes me die a little inside since it reminds me of how I spilled the first mililiter and let the other dry out due to a leak in the seal of my sample.
