Charlie (1973) is a cheerful, accessible soapy green floral chypre for the masses. In the same vein as Norell, Chanel No 19, Ivoire, and Fidji— but a bit brighter & simpler. This was worn (heavily!) and loved by many women in my family. I loved smelling it in the air as a kid, as it seemed sophisticated and exciting with its brisk greenness. And I associated it with things I wasn’t allowed to …Read more

Lately I have been taking a walk down memory lane, nostalgic for the bad perm days of the 80's when we must have been oblivious to how many people inhaled our noxious fumes. I wore Charlie sometimes. I wore acid washed jeans and liked mullets on guys. I don't anymore. Charlie is a floral that smells on me as if I was taking a 3 day binge drunk in a dive bar. In a satin jacket with my …Read more

Well everyone, I being a Gentleman wear Charlie Eau de Toilette and on me it is wonderful. I think it is very much a " Unisex " Fragrance...to me at least and I see NO problem with a man wearing Charlie, why not, not only is it CALLED " Charlie " but it's aroma is rather masculine and smokey, warm and inviting. Charlie is one power house of a fragrance. It's very …Read more

How is it I have never reviewed my beloved Charlie! I have worn vintage Charlie for nearly my entire life and I wear it well. It's very femme and always the right fragrance to wear whether I'm dressing up or down. Appropriate for work and hits the right notes for evening as well. When I was much younger, Charlie made me feel older and more sophisticated. Now that I'm a little …Read more

I was surprised to learn that "Charlie" won a Fifi award (the perfume version of the Oscar) back in the day. Though I was just a kid, I can still vividly recall the commercials for "Charlie" with Shelley Hack dressed in a man-tailored suit. "Kinda young, kinda now, Charlie, Kinda hip, kinda wow, Charlie" so the jingle went. "Charlie" might be middle-aged …Read more

My review refers to what is now being sold as "Charlie Blue", presumably the modern day formulation of the original Charlie.

I am not a fragrance snob and am always on the lookout for a drugstore bargain, in fact I am doing my best to work through all the classic, even iconic drugstore fragrances still available today. My mom loved and wore Charlie for many years and still …

I wore this in the mid/late 70's in high school and during a grad school work study in England. I remember they had a whole makeup line to go with it. Smelling it always reminded me of that time in my life.

I picked some, up just for nostalgia, and wore it one day. My long time boyfriend who was born 10 years after Charlie came out sniffed my neck and gave me his first whole …

I love this fragrance!! I keep it in my locker at school for if I ever forget to put on perfume before school. I sometimes spray it after gym class if I'm really sweaty, so that I can atleast smell good!! It has such a fruity smell, the smell actually reminds me of Orbit chewing gum (the mixed berry flavour). The bottle's great as well, I once dropped it by mistake as I was picking up …Read more

I remember this fragrance when i was in gr. 5, i so loved it and i would feel so grown up whenever i wore it. I had the smallest spray bottle.

I picked up a bottle of the eau de toilette for an extremely reasonable price - for 3.5 oz, $8.99...brand new in box from a reputable retailer. I do enjoy the eau de toilette...this IMO is the closest to the original charlie i remember. I …

The original Charlie was my very first experience with perfume. My mother wore it all the time when she was young and I always loved the way it smelled on her (Dad must have too since he gave her a bottle for Christmas every year). Mom traded up to Tocade and Chanel #5 when she was older so I always think of it as a scent for younger women even though it's considered an old-fashioned …Read more
