Fragrances -Roger & Gallet -Eau de The Vert

on 3/12/2017 4:11:00 PM

I've been wearing this for years - my aunt gifted it to me and I think I've gone through three bottles. It is light, fresh, sweet, and lovely. Really clean scent, nothing musky or spicy. I love it for all year round, though I can see how some might find it too light for winter. It's floral and slightly fruity, my favorite type of scent. Would be good for a younger lady starting out with perfume IMO.


Lotions/ Creams -Roger & Gallet -Bois d'orange gentle fragrant moisturizing body lotion

I like this lotion. (It's not like the picture, but rather packaged in a saffron-yellow pump bottle.) It's a fairly runny lotion that is easily absorbed. Not super-moisturising, but enough if your skin is not very dry. The scent is the Roger & Gallet bois d'orange, i.e. sort of woody orange scent. If you like that then you'll like this lotion. I do not find the scent long-lasting though. The bottle is pretty and the price, whilst not cheap, is okay for an occasional splurge. I would try others in the R&G line.


Gels/Soaps -Roger & Gallet -hand soaps, various scents

foto

This are our favourite hand soaps. Usually i buy the Gimgembre one, I love the woody-spicy scent as all my family do. Also we like the Green Tea one, and I plan to buy the Osmanthus next.
The price is a bit steep, but the soaps last a lot, they don't melt in the soap dish, and leave your bathroom perfumed. They lather well and clean your hands accordingly.
They come in units or three soaps boxes. The boxes are a better buy, and then you get a really nice cardboard box for storage. Also you can re-use the silk paper that wraps the soap to perfume you undies or linens drawers.

Fragrances -Roger & Gallet -Oeillet bleu blue carnation

on 9/18/2015 4:16:00 PM

I have resolved to start wearing more of my vintage fragrances and to determine if any of my impressions have changed.

I have a large vintage bottle of Oeillet Bleu in near perfect condition that I obtained on Etsy by accident (I think I was looking for Diorella at the time). The glass bottle is not attractive, the label is utilitarian and by no means at all luxurious. It has a white plastic cap.

It is a light colored liquid, almost the color of water, and it is amazingly true, IMO, straight carnation spicy, like a soliflore, and not dusky. There is absolutely nothing musty or oriental about this fragrance.

My vintage Floris Malmaison is slightly dusky in comparison. It may not be in as perfect condition as the Oeillet Bleu -- the Malmaison is golden in hue. On the skin and in the bottle, Malmaison is a touch more floral, a touch less soliflore.

In comparison Villarossi's Garafano (also discontinued, but I lucked out at the store years ago and they happened to have a bottle left), Garafano is a bit more soapy and IMO geranium forward than Malmaison and certainly more so than Oeillet Bleu.

I wrote a review of the original release of Poivre Extrait by Caron. It was sealed and I had to hack it open. It's darkened from the golden color of the perfume in the dragon advertisements, and I am sure the top notes have dissipated. However, it's gorgeous, so well blended, it's magical, but very different in character. The gorgeous Caron dry down is much smoother and I assume more oxidized than Caron's current extraits today. It has a bite but is warmer and cozier than current poivre without any modern powderiness or Amber overload.

Right now, I don't remember much of the two times I went to sample Diamond Water and Golconda from JAR on my wrists, but u am certain I wrote of my impressions in either my review of Poivre or Malmaison.
