On Father's Day, Mother found him again.
... in my bright red leather teen make-up case Filled with some other over things from the 80s and 90s.
The first thing I saw when opening the treasure chest to my great delight was PERLE NOIR, also Avon, and very close to the vintage COCO CHANEL in terms of scent, silage & durability.
But just less sprayer in it.
BOGNER BATH & BODY also made me squeak (but also almost empty, of course) as well as some miniatures, which surprisingly were still at least half full:
VENICE by Yves Rocher, JOOP - LE BAIN, LA PERLA, FENDI, ELIZABETH TAYLOR - PASSION, MONDI.
And another sample (with packaging) of the NICKY DE SAINT PHALLE perfume, yeah!

But then I saw the bottle, the unforgotten one.
It's called that for a reason, the smell.
Optically alone, it is technically impossible to forget him.
This beautiful little bottle, something between 20's boudoir charm, Orient and hippiedom.
And which one could already see that the content is not arbitrary.
Nothing can be arbitrary.
The smell hadn't been in my head for years, but I knew before I opened the plug that I was about to be delighted and happy again!
And so it was.
It hasn't lost any of its radiance, although I got it from my mom in the late 80s and she already had it in the 70s No 'I-you-roar'-you-um ka-rubber, but rather in a slightly elitist way present and very dense.
Kind of flowery, but without any flowers. Very spicy, but without that typical 70s flair.
And simply zero comparable with everything that is offered today in (mainstream) fragrances. Rather the complete opposite of this olfactory offer.
But you can already tell that the fragrance is "old", in the sense of "from another time".
And yet I find him neither madamy, nor tantig and certainly not oma-esque.
It's more like this:
if it were launched today, it would certainly be a niche in the 150-200 Euro for 50 ml range.
Like a collaboration of Francesca Bianchi and the BOGUE creator maybe ?
Who want to house their scented DNA together and UNFORGETTABLE would be their "lovechild".

That's exactly how I feel about this great perfume.
Noble.
Special.
Portable.

Huge heart of mine!

P.S.: all scents are still ok, none tilted or even weaker, yay!

In the Chypre Wonderland
"Unforgetteable is truly unforgettable. Once smelled...the "scented brain" is asking for MORE...
It's almost like certain fantasy stories, you read a book at least twice or watch a movie over and over again. So happened at the "Infinite Story" or "The Cabinet of Doctor Parnassus"....
Such a story is also in this Avon fragrance from 1968.
Dark floral with rose, patchouli and vetyver, slightly wicked and very chypry with lots of oak moss and birch tar. Deep, dark, like slightly brittle velvet draped around a man-high, old mirror,
You want to immerse yourself in this wonder-fantasy land of a fragrance. With violet skies and deep green lakes, over which colourful, glass "soap bubbles" float.
It's also impressive that a fragrance from the late 60s is a perfume oil that calls a glass "key bottle" its home.
"Unforgetteable" is a very long-lasting perfume with a clear fragrance progression, in which all fragrances merge almost imperceptibly into each other without displacing an olfactory "predecessor", everything remains, becomes more and more "full-bodied" and deeper with increasing wearing time, the "suction" is flowery-woody oak moss with a devilishly good "leather" note, accompanied by patchouli and sandalwood. With an echoing undertone from Vetyver.
I try again and again to put such scent experiences into words, so that my "fellow noses" can understand it at least realistically.
But there are scents, which should be smelled despite good description itself, if they still exist somewhere.
And mostly the "best" are rejected by fragrance companies, because they are no longer "up-to-date".
Too bad, the fragrance wonderland is becoming more and more unified, according to the fashion taste.
But there are still surviving veterans, often more than a hundred years old.
But "Unforgetteable" is unfortunately not included....
