Wild, Raw, Jasmine
I am not a vintage hunter by any stretch of the imagination, but when I see a fully discontinued bottle of perfume from a formerly well-regarded house (now defunct), I have a hard time passing it by, since I know for a fact that there is no chance that I'll be faced with yet another mediocre reformulation. As the mainstream designer houses continue to converge in their use of gross aromachemicals, with the bulk of their creative emphasis (what little remains) on bottles with frilly decorations--hats and plastic flowers and the like--I've become even more inclined to buy discontinued bottles. There is safety in discontinuation: no secret cabal of chemists and accountants has conspired to fob off an imposter as a once-great perfume. No, a discontinued perfume, for better or for worse, is what it was intended to be by its creator.

A felicitous case in point, Crown Perfumery MATSUKITA is a rich and succulent wild jasmine perfume. I say "wild" because there is a touch of indole and also greenishness. But mainly, MATSUKITA offers lush and creamy white jasmine. I would recommend this perfume to anyone who appreciates true jasmine soliflores (and if you don't, then you would not like this). This perfume appears not to be very well known, but I found a bottle at one of the discounters for a pittance, and I have to say that it was quite the score.

There is no hedione here, nor ambroxan, just jasmine from (I presume) Grasse in significant proportion along with a bunch of other unidentifiable perfumey "stuff" which bears absolutely no resemblance to the pseudo-jasmines being marketed all over the place today.
