I have a few vintage EDT that are much more concentrated than what they turn out today. I remember when I was really young I had a thing for Stetson's Preferred Stock, and one spray of that would last all day. Then they changed the formula (colour went from a purple to a clear liquid) and it never lasted quite the same.Why? Just curious.
I tend to prefer EDT concentrations. Not so obliteratingly thick and actually allows the fragrances to breathe, for want of less wankery words.
Wearing Floris No. 89. This is so, so good. It just keeps getting better and better with every wearing. When I first tried it, I thought it was forgettable. Didn't think it was dated, but definitely a grandparent scent. Now though, I understand it's beauty and actually don't think it smells old at all. It's just a great rose scent.
But, what I love about it is how reminiscent it is to Forntnum and Mason's rose-flavoured tea buscuits I bought from Heathrow in mid-March when COVID shat the bed. I had them all through my 14 day quarantine and beyond. They're light, balanced, and guilt-free snacks, and Floris No. 89 is exactly those things. I don't feel weird or out of character wearing this.
I've decided to get a full bottle of it. It's only a matter of time.
I actually ordered a somewhat vintage bottle of it a day ago for a fair price. Man, I just couldn't resist. It's too elegant and classic to pass up.Funny--I wore this yesterday, & I agree that it's fantastic. Every time I wear it, I ask myself why I don't wear it more often
