This came to me as a sample with another order. I sighed, damn why do they send me stuff I'll have to send to the landfill. I grab it to chuck and get some on my fingers. Wait! What's this? Have I been transported to a time machine? This little number is a total surprise. Beautiful soft chypre with a hefty dose of oakmoss and musk. Dry and round, never sharp or loud. In a word, I LOVE it. Apparently Weil came out with a lot of EdC of their greats that were not well done and not well received. This review is of their latest version of Antilope in EdP strength. Much like Patou's 1000 but less austere and stand offish. Very, very good. I'm sure it's not as good as the vintage, but very little is. Still, worth trying and in my case, worth buying. Head and shoulder above most current offerings. UPDATE: Sometimes I think manufacturers make the tiny samples of a higher quality to get you to buy and put a cheaper formulation in their full sizes. This seems like the case with this one. Full size bottle rather watery and a bit cheap smelling. Makes you think it was once amazing, but now definitely not.

Gorgeous retro-chypre. Floral aldehydes with a woodsy drydown. Do not get any similarity to Ma Griffe but it does have a Caleche vibe imo. Lovely but difficult to obtain, would buy again.

I bought a vintage french sampler that was originally from a shop in Monte Carlo. I knew MaGriffe , the original formulation and I knew Givenchy III - both hauntingly wonderful. So I was very curious to smell Antilope. I get an incredible smokey firelight, candle lit lodge aroma. There is fire and smoke and wet ski boots and, well, undeniable wealth. This is unforgettable. I regret the name and cannot fathom why it was tagged Antilope.

Sampled Antilope recently from a vintage parfum miniature. I think that even though this scent was kept in a case, it might have been altered somewhat by the passage of time. It was the musk that appeared on me first followed by sparkling aldehydes that morphed into a classic retro powder vibe. I think it's a pleasant scent but it's a bit too retro for me to consider wearing, it takes me to a time and place where I just don't feel like I belong. No sale.

Do you remember Interlude from the seventies? That racy, sexy Frances Denney number? This will feel like a flashback. Chypre, dry flowers, and lots of aldehydes intertwine, but some sexy musk undercurrents keep it from being totally retro. Nonetheless, you may be tempted to don a midi skirt and fringed suede boots when you wear this. Sexy in a Space 1999 sort of way.

A nice MUA'er sent me a decant of Antilope in a swap, and I love it. My first thought was that it smells very much like Ma Griffe, which I wore when I was 17 (many, many years ago). It has the same soft powdery sweetness on me, and I get a distinct dry note of vetiver as well. I don't know whether vetiver is a component of Antilope, but I smell it. Could probably work well on a man, too. I think this is such a great, subtle fragrance. My husband likes it on me, too. This is exactly the type of fragrance I've been wanting lately: classic and subtle. Not long lasting, however, probably because it is edc or a light edt. But that doesn't bother me at all. Thumbs up. :-)
