Successful
It takes a bit and you should not be deterred by the scent, because sage is listed, but only minimally (for very fine noses) to sniff. Since I'm a chypre and green fan, this one benefits me greatly because it contains all the components that capture and beguile me. At the same time, I have to say that for me, the top and heart notes quickly disappear and the oakmoss and leather linger for a very long time. For me, an all-round successful fragrance, which is also still very cheap to buy online. My husband already wanted to take it away from me, but, no way. - I bought him his own bottle!

The Fashion File
So this is my first conscious chypre, or at least chypre-like scent. Of alone I would not have approached him. Aldehydes, patchouli and sage make me already from reading headache.

But since I got him lovingly to the heart, I also wanted to give him a chance.

He starts green and herbaceous and yes the aldehydes are noticeable there but at least not as strong and unpleasant as first assumed.

I don't really get it all apart at all. It is an interwoven fragrance reminiscent of old times. Slowly the scent settles into something suede-like and powdery-sweet at the same time. Reminds something of make up.
Well no time to play and quickly pulled the next file. In this case, it is about a self-proclaimed designer. Often you have to put yourself in other worlds, professions and circumstances. I read the business plan, which is unfortunately kept very short but was illustrated with many pictures of the collections.
As if through a veil I perceive excited murmuring, a certain bustle arises, the models slip out of the dresses to slide right back into the next. A small seamstress flits from one to another making final alterations and correcting the fit of the suede belts. The makeup artist powders off, reapplies lipstick and tweaks hairstyles. Hairspray, powder and make up fixer are in the air.
The emcee's voice lifts, the next song plays, and the girls are sent down the runway.
Quietly, a figure emerges from the background, smiling and looking proudly at the collection, the audience and your models.

To me, it smells very classic. Actually, I have no idea about classics, most of them I don't like, as I associate them with old ladies tippling (well strutting) across the Ku-Damm with your fiffi on your arm. It will probably never become my genre but this one is still quite pleasant. The longevity is good, the sillage perceptible, pleasant and not too intrusive. Towards the end, it falls apart a bit.

Ok, enough daydreaming, now refocus and get on with the numbers part. Oh no, no fragrance will help...

Classic greetings
Your Donnagirl

*Thanks to Foxear for the little trip to the good old days. And now back to the future.

The old way
Dated - exactly same as the older version.
Something you may have found on every dresser back in the 60s, which is when this number was created. A very (VERY) soapish - that galbanum/ylang/lavender mix is overwhelming - floral. Makes me think of very (VERY) mature ladies' scents.

In sum, way too outdated so test before buy to not incur in huge disappointment. You gotta love this type of old school numbers, because it is a very old school unknown to most... that's how dated this is even in its "modern" (I question that) reformulation.
A resounding NO thanks from me.

Cultivated Grünherb for every occasion
After I tested the 95 Cabochard and found it too scratchy, I blindly ordered this edition based on the descriptions.
A happy choice, as it turns out.

Just this fresh green start alone: Beautiful. Very green, very awake, not unsweet, a little bit herbaceous but nevertheless very well maintained. A bit like tall, ripe grass at the edge of the forest.

Slowly the smell leads me deeper into the forest and closer to the ground. It becomes more woodsy, heavier, sweeter, warmly spicy and a little bit earthy, but never musty or stuffy; I always feel the scent as somehow "fresh", as if a mild wind is blowing in the forest landscape.

Little by little he becomes softer, almost a bit resinous, cuddly, peaceful like a purring (wild or forest) cat. Slowly - much too fast - it fades away.

I find the fragrance round, gentle and very well cared for. After the many descriptions of the older editions I would have imagined him to be more "adventurous" or "unruly" - but I don't experience that at all: For me he is something for every occasion. Special and rather harsh than sweet, but not pushy; friendly and affectionate.

Only the durability is a bit sad on my skin. After a few hours it is so close to my body that I have to spray again - and with two sprayers of conviction much more generously than I usually do.
(OK, my comparison values are AE and Scherrer - both rather durability monsters as well as Sillage monsters ...).

Conclusion: I need it with pleasure and would buy it again.
By the way, I also ordered the EdT - but I don't see any difference to the EdP, except that it disappears even faster

Come on, goblin!
He's here!! Dear Turandot told me where he is and today he arrived! The EdP understands.
And it's wonderful!
I love this woody, herbaceous freshness and can imagine him in every season. Spices and warmth in winter, green wildness in summer - and always understated and elegant. It's an eye-catcher for the nose. The old version, which I unfortunately only owned as a bottling, is reproduced in a new form, there is no back but the forward is and faithfully implemented.
To the new edition I can only say: successful and irresistibly beautiful!

The leather is wearable and soft, wild galbanum, strong flowers, mild sandalwood in the base. Dark green velvet, fresh green woods and dry wood, a breath of flowers. Warm skin.
Azuree, Miss Dior, Aromatics Elixir, if that hits a nerve, definitely try the new (good old) Cabochard!

Is it really you?
Do you know the situation at a class reunion, when you are confronted by someone you used to know well, you have had good times with him, you also find familiar facial expressions and language and yet you are still a stranger?
That's how I felt when I sprayed on the newest version of Cabochard. Yes, there is already known, and yet... it already wanted to spread the unfortunately so often experienced disappointment, if once again a fragrance classic reformulated to pretend as if he was the ancestor. Well well, the money is to be taken care of, you can use it now and then and consume it in such a way... but it's a shame.
But then in the course of the evening the ice breaks. Both at the class reunion and at the approach to an old-fashioned scent I end up in the stage of "Do you still know...?" And "How was that then..." etc. etc. The somewhat awkward time of reuniting, possibly even of false memories, is over and one digs into the treasure trove of experienced treasures one would not want to miss.

Those who would also like to devote themselves to the olfatkorian past should be warned. The top note of the new version is a bit flat and I already remembered the much tried concept of the "shadow of its self". But Cabochard (2019) doesn't deny his ancestors and I think Bernard Chant doesn't have to turn in his grave because his work was violated. On the contrary! A monument was erected to the fragrance. I do recognize that modern perfumers have done their bit, but now, after more than 10 hours on my skin, I still smell - of course, Cabochard as it loves and - unfortunately - not alive anymore. But it is clearly recognizable and so I can say: Hello, it really is you! Herb, stylish, elegant as ever, not a bit subject to today's fashion and therefore a great fragrance for someone who has kept his own style through all the olfactory folly.

Uplifting aldehyde green opening that goes straight to a lovely dusty leather base. Wait, did i just spray Aramis Classic?
