The flea market visit, or how I got to a real English gentleman's scent
Recently I visited our city flea market again after a long time. I didn't really want to buy anything in particular, I just wanted to browse around a bit. After I had almost bought a computer hard disk which, according to the seller, was still in order and not recognized by the system, I wanted to make my way home again with zero yield, when I looked at a small collection of miniature flacons at the opposite sales booth. I inspected the collection with interest. There were many small dusty flacons with and without lids. The only thing that seemed usable seemed to be a slightly larger bottle with the inscription Woods of Windsor for Gentleman and a tower on a yellow label. Also this vessel was very dusty, the shape very classic and it seemed to be already a few decades old. My suspicion was confirmed on the back. The bottle dates back to 1991. Since there was still about 3/4 of the content available I bought the rare piece for no less than 2 Euro. I didn't even have to negotiate.
Arriving home I first tested the contents on a paper test strip and was surprised to find out how good the stuff smelled. A nice fresh lemongrass note with a touch of orange supported by verbena. Of old or dumped no trace. Great!
Dotted with it, I sprayed the perfume on the back of my hand. Again this great fresh note, not intrusive, but nevertheless very present. Is that it already? Not at all! It got better and better. In the heart note more and more various spices appeared. Dusty cinnamon, peppery nutmeg and spicy cloves embedded in woods such as sandalwood and/or cedar wood. This wood spice mixture was framed by an earthy, slightly bitter, clearly defined vetiver note. In the drydown to the base the woods became more and more popular and after 4 hours the scent was slowly released and could only be perceived thinly on the skin.
I had the feeling to wear an inconspicuous but unmistakable dry wood-herb scent with a lot of noble British style. It could be a perfect match for visiting English gentlemen's clubs, such as the Reform Club.
In any case it was a lucky find, because the current reformed Woods of Windsor for Gentleman doesn't seem to have the quality of the vintage version anymore. Fix me if I'm wrong.
