A womans body in motion
I bought Parfum de Peau from Montana about 6 years ago.
I was lucky enough to find a pretty old vintage bottle. It's a 50 ml splash/bottle and might be from the nineties or late eighties. Batchode I couldn't find one.
The box is also still tadeless and a leaflet is in the box, as it used to be. On the leaflet you will find the corresponding care products such as a body foam, moisturising emulsion, body cream, shower gel, soap etc. there was also an extra of it and an EdT light.
Parfum de Peau is referred to therein as a spicy aromatic chypre.
Who is behind the names Claude Montana?
Claude Montana, born in 1949, is a French fashion designer, whose trademarks in the eighties were large shoulder pads, narrow waists and leather pants. A self-confessed homosexual, he married his muse, the model of the same age, Wallis Franken, in 1993. They had known each other since 1977 and she was already running for his shows. Wallis played in Madonna's erotic video clip "Justify my love" in 1990. She is the lady resembling Jamie lee Curtis with suspenders and a peaked cap, who approaches Madonna's toyboy Tony Ward at about minute 3.10. Wallis had a penchant for self-destructive relationships and was obsessed with her hopeless, rather one-sided love for Claude Montana and so this marriage also ended tragically. She threw herself out of the window of her hotel room in Paris in 1996
Back to the fragrance Parfum de Peau. The fragrance came out in 1986 in the middle of the eighties. The fragrance is correspondingly undecendant.
Right at the beginning the Tagetes assert themselves, followed by orange blossoms, black currants and leather.
The leather described in the base notes asserts itself with me right at the beginning. Tagetes are also called Stinkerchen and have a slightly civet-like, slightly urine-like note. This makes the scent appear animalistic and naughty. The leather does the rest.
It takes a while for the fragrance to calm down a bit, then it becomes a little tame and shows its flowery heart.
It is difficult for me to smell the individual components of the flowers, I can identify Narcisse the best. Jasmine and rose should also be underneath
The base notes are dreamlike already. I hear warm soft amber and a fruity blend. Some oakmoss should also be part of it.
I can still smell the base note on my skin after 20 hours.
Well, in the eighties you still got a lot of durability for your money.
The dosage should be handled rather carefully.
With measure and goal applied an absolutely dreamlike fragrance, which I like to wear again and again.
According to the cardboard, the spirally twisted bottle is supposed to represent a woman in motion.
I will guard my bottle like a treasure
