Tamara de Lempicka, headless motor vehicles, a leap in the air
Basically 'Metal' is a dented 'Calandre' (1969). The magnificent flood of fresh aldehydes turned into a shy lily of the valley. The flowery background makes room for a cutting wind of galbanum (at least that's what it's called). And the base is an approaching (I know this is an oxymoron) horizon of coagulated thunderclouds. This is fun! Pilots (m/w/x) and convertible drivers (m/w/x) feel with.

Head and foot have reversed their roles. The classical music still tried for in 'Calandre', the clean feeling of weighed absence becomes an urgent adventure. The physicality, which I already found so beautifully drawn in 'Calandre', the human aura of the differentiated basic tone, indescribably fine, and still recognizable in the current reformulation: this has become the leitmotif in 'Metal'.

Quite apart from the contemporary still valuable material composition, the ticklish sexyness of the Sandel/Veti/Moos base can only be softened by the whiff of offensive coolness from the over-excited Galbanum?

In itself, the thing is quite simple. Exalted expressiveness, a conspicuous presence at almost any price, an already hoarse hectic for attention. 'Metal' was a floppy.

Just what's today? One (m/f/x) wants to imitate the nature of the substance, only that it no longer has any meaning. A prey like for zoo animals (who doesn't think of zebras now?).

cold clear future
It's quite a challenge to figure this one out. Rabanne had Metal, then Eau de Metal, and some say there's an Eau de Metale pour homme. My bottle looks not at all like the one shown here, but clearly says "eau de metal" (with appropriate diacritical marks I don't know how to make).

So, I'm mystified. But this lovely scent is clearly a close relative of Calandre, Rabanne's futuristic beauty of 1969. It's a very chic florist shop, cool and damp on a sunny day, where you can smell the tin buckets that hold the flowers. To me, hyacinth is most prominent.

I've looked for a note listing, and find a lot of confusion on the subject. The one that makes the most sense to me is one from a contributor on Basenotes: aldehydes, hyacinth, lily-of-the-valley, rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, and basil, with a base of oakmoss, vetiver, amber, and white musk. Because I associate it so strongly with Calandre, it makes me think of 1960s futurism - the original "Star Trek," "The Jetsons," and other shows that made clear to us that surely we'd be flying around with jetpacks or teleporting around the globe by the 2010s! It makes me want to buy a chrome and glass coffee table.
