Just received this as part of a multi-swap. I love the idea of having a vintage fragrance that you can't buy anymore--so unique! This is my first experience with chypre, and I have to admit, at first I wasn't too sure if it was for me. But after trying it on about 30 minutes ago, I can't stop sniffing my wrist! It is definitely growing on me! If you have a chance to try this, don't hesitate!
The previous review summed it all up beautifully. I do wish that they would reintroduce this but I understand that it may not be popular enough with current Body Shop customers. A limited edition would have me purchasing a lifetime's supply. This is a chypre in the true, original Chypre de Coty, hazy summer days and elegance way. My vintage bottle smells divine, though the natural oakmoss has darkened with age. I definitely recommend for true classic chypre lovers.
Originally available at TBS fragrance bar,sadly this particularly oil was discontinued about 12yrs ago..It is true Chypre in every sense of the word..Pungent oakmoss mixed with bergamont and a light patchouli base yet also comes off with a slight hint of muskiness.Very Bohemian...If you're a fan of scents like Paloma Picasso or Yohji Essentials,You will love Chypre!!
