Bäm!
I souked up the scent here as bottling because I got curious about the comments.

Preserved-sprayed... and wow! No. More like BÄÄÄM. What a scent. Not a little hickey... not for young girls, but a seasoned '80s scent. Very flowery...a little stinging...slightly soapy...pure and still without frills. I like.

I was then able to get hold of a ribbed bottle and am happy that I now own it. Certainly not a scent for every day. Maybe even for the evenings.

For me he belongs to the ranks of Vanderbilt, Chanel Nr 5, Giorgio Beverly Hills and maybe Jadore. All very distinctive fragrances for which I have to be in the mood, because they can also become too much for me. But if I feel like this kind of scent then they are just great.

Purity, Antiquity, Rarity In Today's World
Old-time aldehydes tinged with smokey soapiness open Climat. This is not a "today" perfume or a "foodie" fragrance, this is a mature perfume, an experience into perfumery on how it used to be done. Some very old, quite vintage Avon perfumes from their beginnings have this opening, such as Moonwind in the original packaging of the tall blue glass cylinder.
Civet and wood are strong also, while it lasts. Head out to a used book store in some vintage garb wearing Climat on a Saturday afternoon and you'll feel at ease with your world. This is a choice of an adult perfumista who has tried a world of perfumes, one who has stepped amongst the florals, the chypres, the gourmands, the woods and so many others. Climat is for one who understands vintages in their purity. But also appreciates them for what they bring to their lives.
This is a combination of aldehyes, civet, woods, vetiver, florals, mosses, powders and others that blend together in such an old-fashioned manner that it is a perfume that should be experienced. Spraying it on creates such a perfume aura, almost one of antiquity, one that is unspoken of in these fruty-floral days.
Is it old-fashioned? Or is it a perfume for the mature nose? In doing a comparison of Moonwind, I found that vintage Moonwind and Climat(La Collection Fragrances by Lancome) were very difficult to tell apart. The smokiness of Climat, the vetiver and the soapiness lingers throughout in such a classic well-mixed manner. For me, this composition sadly fades quickly. Two hours later, it was gone. But the experience was not, and that I appreciated.
This is a perfume I would pull out infrequently. When I am tired of everything else, and I seek something that reminds me of ball gowns, my college sorority formals, of dancing under the moonlit sky I'll think of reaching for Climat. It's sophisticated. It's mature. It's elegant. It's a completely different experience.

Old School Aldehydic Floral Green Oakmoss Chypre
Yes, that's a mouthful, and CLIMAT, from the Lancôme La Collection reissue of a series of the house's classic perfumes, is a noseful! Oak moss may not be listed in the official hierarchy of notes, but it is patently present and explicitly named among the ingredients on the box: evernia prunastri. That's right, not evernia furfuracea, so oak moss lovers lamenting the substitution of furfurfacea for prunastri said to be necessitated for compliance with IFRA restrictions should definitely consider seeking out the coffret of four of these .5 ounce perfumes in beautiful bottles and a lovely white box display.

Wearing CLIMAT is like taking a trip back to a time when popular perfumes did not fall into the category of either sweet patchouli or sweet laundry or shampoo scents. CLIMAT is a complex and thoroughly composed perfume. The aldehydes are just as bright as the oak moss is gray and fuzzy. Adding to the complexity, a bountiful floral bouquet lies at the heart of the composition, and everything is held together for a very long time with a substantial base. Because of the aldehydes, CLIMAT manages not to feel too weighted down, but it is still densely grayish green. The drydown becomes slightly soapy, also a classic touch.

I've seen reviewers compare this perfume to Amouage DIA and GOLD, but really CLIMAT is much more of a floral green chypre than it is a floral aldehyde perfume. It's strictly classic and means business. Only adult perfume users need apply! Wearing this beautiful creation every now and then is a great way to connect with perfumery as it was once done, before the advent of mass launches and minimalism. This perfume was not composed in a week.
