The finest mossy soap opera
Such a "noble firecracker" from the early 80s points to a colourful time. "Madonna's" first hits, Blondie, New Wave... a suitable fragrance should also be available.
Formerly New Wave, today vintage, but still as beguiling as ever.
"Ivoire" perfume has so many great ingredients, you don't know where to sniff first. Prelude aldehyde, spicy, floral, almost confusing, like a whirling beat.
Then the "soap opera" appears, almost like expensive fine soap smelled back then, I remember "cappus" soap, which was only available in special drugstores, finely spicy, floral, foaming and almost as long on the skin as a good EdT.
Or "Roger & Gallet", I don't know which, but just as seductive in the fragrance.
And only then the "fund" of the fragrance, when the middle note is supplemented by a few fragrance building blocks. The marvellous moss, which with sandalwood enters a liasion dangerous for smell addicts, quiet smoke in the background, with "earthy" grasses, with fine bitter aftertaste.
And this soap moss vintage fits back in time, exactly, in the 2010s, time for "New Wave" and individuality.
