Holla, the forest fairy
"Jontue" is a green-powdery fragrance, full of iris and vetiver. And that should make it clear that I like it. It's inconspicuous sometimes, but you shouldn't neglect it at all. Typically 70's and similar to many other women's hits of the time, which does not make Revlon's undervalued classics any worse. A little more fans and attention would have deserved this fluffy beauty.

A wiry forest fairy, a fabulous oakmoss chord in the finish. Such a thing is not done nowadays any more - often only a saying, here absolutely the truth. The fragrance reminds a little of "Y" or "Cabochard", only a little younger and more naive. Almost fresh. Light green and very friendly, open-minded, pretty. Very pretty. A peaceful creature that awakens the protective instinct in every three-legged creature, but does not need it to survive or progress. Loosely portable, yet chic enough, a real all-rounder from days gone by. Without being harsh or hippie. She's just her, doesn't have to pretend. That makes a good impression.

Flacon: mostly unspectacular and bulky.
Sillage: for a representative from the 70s comparatively tame.
Shelf life: 7 hours, honest and gentle

Conclusion: a classic lady's green, powdery and soft, elegant and delicate. Pretty fine and not one bit weaker than many others, much bigger name from the time. Masculine as most men's releases from 2018. Say it all again.

Drugstore Classic
When Jontue came out it was quite a revelation for our high-school crowd. Basically, Revlon hit on the idea that America's great swell of boomer babies needed an inexpensive floral day-to-evening perfume that could sub for more aspirational fumes such as Chanel No. 5 and Arpege until girls grew up. So Jontue, feminine, cheap and cheerful, was born. It immediately knocked out Chantilly, which in those days you could buy in an enormous-size cologne. I still wear Jontue on weekends and any day I want to feel young. An amped up white flower confection, it definitely influenced such later screechers as Giorgio Beverly Hills.

From a time when a drugstore perfume was simply more affordable, not cheap. Mossy green floral, ethereal, it shines in autumn! Crisp beauty!

Green moss and hyacinth, with peach and sweet white flowers peeking through the gaps. Might remind you of shampoo. The best on rainy days.
