A belated Happy Birthday! I have not been keeping up, but now that I am here, I am learning soooooo much as usual. I hope you had a great day and that all is going well. xx

Maybe you could do a piece on famous couples of old and their scents? That would be keeping with the vintage theme.

I actually find this to be the closest thing to Coty's vintage Chypre that can still be found. I assume I've only tried vintage though, as Dad has been slowly working his way through the same mega-bottle since about 1975. At any rate, it's a super under-praised fragrance!

Hi B, how have you been? Just checking in to see what's new here. Great review! Love the peasant/genius quote. Now this is weird, because my mother wears No 5 and my father wears Aramis. You've just reviewed both and created all sorts of associations I don't want to have!

PS - Just to add, the electric blue that was used for the box and accompanying advertising is everywhere this season. I remember I had a pair of killer heels in this colour in the late 80s (which I wore to high school!?). If this colour heralds an 80s revival, then perhaps Parfum de Peau is ready for it's comeback.

I'm so happy you like it! I was shocked to read it's been classified as a fruity chypre? Definitely a floriental in my book too. It reminds me a lot of Amouage's Ubar, and I would love to know who composed the latter. Parfum de Peau is by Edouard Fléchier, who also did Poison and FM's Une Rose. Obviously he doesn't think women should smell like shrinking violets!
