Le Parfum - Sonia Rykiel

Le Parfum Sophisticated maybe
In 1988, before I was twelve, I went to London with my family. While shopping, we discovered a tiny boutique that had the coolest sweaters I had ever seen in my life. I begged my mum to get something, but she could only afford one and naturally...

Nitchevo (Parfum de Toilette) - Juvena

Nitchevo (Parfum de Toilette) Earthy, animalic chypre
I wouldn't really call this a spicy-floral, as described above - to me it's more an earthy-animalic-leather-chypre. I find it quite dark, and the spiciness is coriander, typical chypre-style. Lots of castoreum, one of my favourite animalic...

Reminds me of a Swedish popcicle called X-15 that I used to love back in the 80s... fresh, juicy, sweet, but more fruity than mimosa-like.
On a bad day, it smells like Samsara with toothpaste. On a good day, it's like a cool, sweet and fresh drink with citrus, mint and vanilla.

Underwhelmed by this. Not bad, but similar to other smoky vanillas from the same decade. Strong and long-lasting, but nothing unique.

Green, lemony, summer morning fresh. Cedar woody, gently animalic. High quality, unisex, hint-of-Diorella, chypre light-feeling. Delightful.
Deep, juicy, wine-like rose-patchouli chypre. A fine specimen of its genre, but you must like patchouli to enjoy this, and sadly I do not.
From memory: a fresh, 70s-style aldehyde-rose-woody chypre à la Calandre and En Avril un soir.

Luscious, sweet and musky carnation with some sandalwood. Similar to New York, New York from same brand, but a little juicier, less dusty.
La Rose La Rose - Rochas - 1 year ago
I expected a dark rose on a heavy base, but found instead a very light, fresh pink rose. I'm surprised they made this back in 1949.

Gorgeous woody-oriental with sweet beeswax, but the strong cedar note tends to get stuck in my throat and can sometimes be a challenge.

Green, fleshy, almost tobacco-spicy orchid. Well-crafted and powerful, but not really a perfume that I am comfortable wearing.
