I originally tried this fragrance in the early 90’s and quite simply it was awful on my skin. I was convinced that my bottle was stale but I have since read many reported stories of the fragrance having ‘metallic’ top notes. This was certainly the case on my skin. Apparently this fragrance was changed from 2000 onward with the edition of more floral notes. With the onslaught of nostalgic fragrances hitting the shelves again I have recently re-attempted a spray of this fragrance. On application the tops notes are very floral with a powdery edge, I can smell rose and another note which I believe to be Gardenia? The base notes are a mix of oak moss, vetiver, musk and balsamic which are not strong but soft and powdery. They do add a little warmth to the green notes and freshness of the opening. The longevity is good up to 6 hours and the dry down is the best part in my opinion.
All said and done this perfume is raved about still after its debut on 1970’s so it has a cult following. On my skin it tends to smell a little soapy so it is not a favourite and would not purchase this now but of you were a fan back then you will still be a fan now
