Revillon's 1977 Hidden Gem...
*Note: This is a review of the 1977 original release of Eau de Revillon (Eau Fraiche).

Eau de Revillon (1977 vintage) opens with a gentle tarragon spice tinged green oakmoss and sharp citrus bergamot tandem before transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the oakmoss takes the fore, joining co-starring woody vetiver from the base, with the tarragon spice remaining in support, joined by aromatic lavender. During the late dry-down the composition turns slightly musky/woody, as remnants of the vetiver and oakmoss join slightly animalic musk and relatively dry sandalwood through the finish. Projection is good, but longevity is below average at 5-6 hours on skin.

Having been impressed with most of the original Revillon offerings targeted to Men like Revillon pour Homme and French Line, completely by chance I saw a similarly styled 4 ounce bottle to Revillon pour Homme on sale called Eau de Revillon and took a chance on a blind buy. There really isn't a lot of information on the perfume on the web, with most centered around a re-release from the late 90s under the same name in a completely different bottle, but from the published list of notes most likely is different from the 1977 original release reviewed here. No matter, I am happy to report that the 1977 release is sublime stuff, reminding me of compositions like vintage Diorella. Eau de Revillon doesn't publish the perfume concentration on the bottle or box, but it wears like a classically structured old school Eau de Cologne with a smooth, light, somewhat aromatic woody nature, and with mossy green oakmoss prominent throughout but never administered heavy-handed. This stuff was most likely marketed to women, but it is easily unisex and extremely pleasant smelling on anyone. The bottom line is the sadly long-since discontinued and rare 1977 version of Eau de Revillon (Eau Fraiche) is an "outstanding" 4.5 stars out of 5 rated masterwork that smells incredible, only marred by ho-hum performance that any vintage perfume lover should snatch up without hesitation if one comes across a bottle on the aftermarket.
