We're all going on a Summer Holiday
I love the enthusiasm of this. A green field of flowers fruits and grass, Vacances is a bit gauche but really delightful.

It's a celebration of summer, and the first paid holidays in France - which began the year Vacances was released. It seems designed to channel the joy of urban workers on discovering the countryside.

Those who know Ma Griffe will find echoes in Vacances with it's light green aldehyde style, but in fact it was ten years ahead of the Carven and it's gaity is more infectious; an all round better perfume, and the only sweet pea I know - except for the real thing...

Some perfumes by Henri Alméras don't really hit the target, feeling like they were made to reflect - and exploit - a socio-economic niche, like the pineapple smell of Colony for instance. But while Vacances was clearly aimed at a new market, it is truly felt; a limpid impression of summertime, and a wonderful perfume.
It is, if you like, Patou's Pastorale ...
