Great classic scent from the 70s
What is vintage is new again: Musky, mysterious, long-lasting classic scent from the 70s. I mix it with my Santal 33 from La Lebo for a custom mix and it's fabulous.

NO NO NO
I did't look at the reviews first and I should have. I cannot even say its a nice scent just not for me. If you're under the age of 80 I do not recommend this scent at all.

DO NOT BUY
EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED. Complete waste for me. The reviews are correct it does smell like something ONLY an old lady would wear. I looked at the Sephora reviews and added it to my queue but should have read these reviews first. DO NOT GET THIS PERFUME. To me it smells worse than old lady perfume. Extremely strong and overpowering.

Old lady fragrance alert
This was one of the worst fragrance I received besides the month with Lalique. Horrible! My son actually said I smelled like a lunch lady! Stinks, and I was sick of smelling myself

I do not hate the smell by any means but it definitely is an older lady scent. Being in my early 20's it doesnt match me at all. It's a nice scent but what I can't handle is how strong it is. It tickles my nose and almost makes my eyes water. Definitely something people are going to smell before they know you're in the room.

I used this years ago and when I saw it on the list I had to retry it. I too am older than most on the list. Most of my other fragrances i have to apply them at least 2x most working hours of the day. One light spray and that is it for the day.

This was a scent I was constantly back and forth between, not sure if I really liked it, or felt like a I should have been wearing a shawl, walking with a cane, and shopping in a Christmas store. It?s not an unpleasant scent and it is very strong, one spray will last you almost an entire day. But it does almost have a nostalgic scent of something my grandmother would have worn.

I used to like this fragrance but my tastes have changed. It seems a lot of elderly women pass with this on and I don't want to associate myself with being older.

The previous reviews seems to be either Love it or Hate it. I was hopeful that I would love it and I didn't. I applied it right after opening the package. It smelled really terrible (think my Grandma's perfume from 1967 that was rancid). I had to scrub my wrist to get it off after a few seconds. Bummer.

I was glad to see an old favorite on the list. That?s right I am probably older than most that subscribe here! Lol. This is a scent that doesn?t take much and it lasts all day! Currently, most scents require you to spray it on like hair spray for it to last 2 hours

I absolutely love this scent. I actually get random people male and female just walking up to me and inhaling. Telling me I smell wonderful. I think it depends on whether or not it meshes with your own chemistry.

I don't get "woody" or "incense" out of this--and if by "sophisticated" you mean "80-year-old woman in a funeral home", then yes, it's VERY "sophisticated". It's sickly sweet with a powdery smell. I was hoping it would change enough with my chemistry to smell better, but nope--I smell like a funeral home. Extremely disappointing.
