Such a lovely scent! Definitely feels age appropriate for me. The top notes are citrusy and fruity with the noticeable lemon and berry notes. The floral notes peak out after a few minutes, ending with a subtle woody scent. As it is a lighter scent, though, the longevity is not as good as other perfumes may be. This doesn't change how much I love this perfume, however. If you tend to prefer lighter scents like me, this is the choice for you. Perfect for Spring. Would recommend!

Fragrances -Lanvin -My Sin Extrait

One of the most fascinating and complex perfumes of the 20thc, and with a rather outrageous name (originally called "MON PÊCHE" in French), MY SIN sails in on a sharp aldehydic/citrus note... curiously leavened by a slightly aromatic clary sage; which evanesces quickly to reveal the dark floralcy of the heart. An "old" "varnished wood" quality is always there, courtesy of oak and styrax, making it similar to that other Lanvin classic, ARPÈGE. But where ARPÈGE is mature, very put-together and somewhat austere, MY SIN is more blatantly sensual, less controlled, with dusty-dark, throbbing, nocturnal-smelling florals like daffodil, narcissus, neroli, iris, jasmine, and ultimately, a glowering purple-black accord of tuberose, ylang-ylang and lilac. All united by a very pronounced musky base of deermusk, costus root (with its curious smell of unwashed, oily hair), ambergris, oldschool nitromusks and civet, which add to the floralcy's lowing, crooning, swarthy beauty. This scent smells like something a youngish femme-fatale might wear, like a young Lauren Bacall, Joan Crawford's bratty daughter in MILDRED PIERCE, or Kathleen Turner in BODY HEAT, or Faye Dunaway in CHINATOWN. Little Edie Bouvier Beale at her Pierre debut. Maybe even Glenn Close in FATAL ATTRACTION. It is pure, musky, sensual attraction, with no frilly, girlish notes that say, "No, I'm just kidding." MY SIN is definitely not kidding... it's not cheering, really, it sets its tender trap, almost with an air of Film Noir danger to it. Modern youth might call MY SIN "old-ladyish" because of its oldschool swank... but I read it as a woman in her 30's or 40's... a cougar. Not for office or church or the PTA. Wearing strapless black velvet with low sweetheart décolletage. Long-lasting, with a surprisingly restrained sillage... it's designed to hug the skin...and purr away. Discontinued in 1988, but bottles of it can still be found on eBay.

Beautiful bottle, beautiful scent. It’s matronly. Very French chic but no. 5 just as elegant. Now it’s been cheapened up in price I’ve never had the pleasure of sniffing 1 that’s vintage. I got this from the Vermont country store catalogue. I really, really like it. I will be wearing it a lot when I’m not wearing my new HG Joy Jean Patou also from VT country store =]


Fragrances -Lanvin -Jeanne Couture

Jeanne Couture is the big sister to Lanvin's Jeanne. Jeanne Couture still has that luscious raspberry note and a very nice note of peony but it has also added some nice aquatic notes and woody notes. It has kind of a masculine vibe beacause of those notes i think. I like to imagine being on a wooden raft on the ocean with pom pom pink peony blooms and raspberries floating by me. The bottle is pretty too. A nice violet color with a purple bow tied around the cap. Notes of musk and cedar finish off this lovely fragrance.

A nice feminine/girly perfume. Has a sweet and rosy undertone but is mostly citrusy. Lasts well throughout the day, I usually wear it in the Spring and summer.
