Received a bottle of vintage MY SIN and ARPÈGE, both in the "Eau de Lanvin" strengths, essentially a strong eau-de-toilette. I can't help comparing them, as they are "siblings" from the same era, and share some DNA.
As another Fragrantica reviewer has correctly observed, they are Yin and Yang to each other, the way Piguet's FRACAS is to BANDIT, Guerlain's …

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 =]

This is the original Arpege scent and, in my opinion, the most romantic in the world. Hard to find at times, but well worth it. If you try the Eclat version, just know that it is not 'the' Arpege.

I remember my mom wearing this as a child. I also remeber the slogan promise her anything, but give her Arpege. My mom got this in the 70's and I remember smelling this in the 80's and it's always reminded me of good things and my mother. So I decieded to get a bottle for myself and her. I really enjoy this fragrence on me it dries down to a lovely floral with something more to it …Read more

I believe that my bottle is an older reformulation, but I am not sure if it is post 1993 reformulation. Apparently post 1993 arpege was considered to be similar to Chanel 5, but warmer. I find that both Arpege and chanel 5 vintage edc are sharp aldehydic floral fragrances on me (perhaps skin chemistry is the issue). I prefer Guerlains treatment of Aldehydes (I love Chamade extrait), but I have …Read more

Lanvin Arpege Eau de Parfum

Price: $30 for 50 mL ($60/100 mL) at Chemist Warehouse.

Longevity: This stays on your skin forever. Like I can sleep with it on and wake up and smell it. I can spray it on the morning and still smell traces of it in the evening.

This is the first fragrance I have ever had. I wanted something cheap but classic as well. It smells …

Oh how I'll sing the praises of this fragrance.

All the sumptuous quality of a Louise Brooks black and white.

It lasts and lasts, and has both a classic character to it, as well as tropical and pretty.

A noble beauty in black.

This perfume has definitely been reformulated, it's so toned down from what I remember as a kid. My mother had the original and I recollect Arpege had more of a bite in the opening notes than it does now, sort of like Chantilly perfume. Lanvin Arpege and My Sin were one of the first high end brand perfumes I experienced as a kid, my mom had these little bottles around and I would play …Read more
