Pleasant, watered-down classic.
This floral is reported to have been inspired by Greta Garbo. I imagine that the current formula is only a figment of its past self. Although marked EdP, it wears more like an EdT or a better EdC. Nevertheless, it's easy to wear and lasts 3-4 hours on me.

Tanglewood is a classic floral - it's warm and slightly earthy & woody, nice for warmer days in autumn. As a classic fragrance, there is nothing earth-shattering or spectacular about this floral. I really wanted something to stand out to me, perhaps the mum on top, or the heliotrope in the heart, or the cinnamon and nutmeg in the base. Instead, it's simply .... pleasant. It may have been ground-breaking at one time but now it is in well-trodden territory.

The Perfume Project and Parfums Raffy both report that Crown was revived in the 1990s and re-produced some of Crown's most popular scents. Apparently Tanglewood was one of them. Eventually, Clive Christian purchased Crown, launched his own scents, and then stopped producing the Crown brand. These newer reproductions of Crown scents were dumped in the marketplace, and full bottles now run about $20 online.

Nevertheless, it's good for a cheap thrill but I'm afraid not much else, unless you are into owning a bit of history.
