The absolute worst fragrance known to man! It smells like a funeral home inside of a funeral home it reeks harshly. I would not wear this perfume if it was the last perfume on the planet. AWFUL!

Stunning. Multi-faceted.
Truly a gem; this deserves to be in an art deco splash bottle displayed on a vanity, not stuck in a generic drugstore shelf collecting dust.
My vintage bottle comes from the 80s with a small tassle. I can see why many people might be afraid to even spray this on a test strip, from the nozzle it smells like some sort of household cleanser. However, this …

Ahhh, Emeraude. It's downmarket, the packaging is laughably basic, and it's been so badly reformulated that I can only recommend vintage bottles from the early '90s or before. However, this timeless fragrance is my spirit animal and I love it with all my heart.

Growing up, we were of modest means. If my mom coveted an expensive fragrance, she'd make do with free …

I am reviewing the Eau de Cologne in a rectangular bottle, new formulation. For the record I have never smelt vintage.

I love Shalimar, so I've been wanting to try this for a while. As it is unavailable in Australia I purchased it as a blind buy off Ebay. Alas, it's not for me. It's very pretty, and yes I can see the similarities to Shalimar, but it's just too light …

I've been a little obsessed lately about trying some of the great original old-timer fragrances. I've reviewed L'origan already and am now on to her smokier sister: Emeraude. Ebay can be such a treasure if you are lucky! I got a 3-piece Emeraude set from someone who found an estate sale bargain. For less than $15, I got a splash on cologne, a spray eau de parfum, and a little …Read more

This stinks so bad! How could any sane person give this a good review?? It smells like cheap old lady perfume and cheap pine tree air fresheners. Hope I never get caught on an elevator with someone wearing this!

I love this! This starts off green and citrusy. Then as it drys down it becomes a lovely gentle soft unique thing. Wonderful!

I wish I had been able to catch a whiff of this in a pre-1980s bottle form!! This reminds me of Jean Nate, Woolworths, CoverGirl, Coty Airspun loose powder, Youth Dew, & old ladies like my mammaw had the dyed red hair too w curlers & a perm. I am fairly certain it's been reformulated into a faint shadow of itself in its former glory which is a bloody crying shame!! I didn't …Read more

I got this for $5.99 at the Grocery Outlet so the price was extremely reasonable. I am not crazy about it, but I am not going to get rid of it in case I "grow into it" or something. Although I think that might take a long time.

Anyway, when I first sprayed it, it smelled very familiar to me, and had a spicy smell. The die down after that was just a sweet, powdery smell that …

I've never been privileged to try any vintage EMERAUDE, sadly; I'm just spraying on the EDC I got dirt-cheap at WALGREEN'S. And as others have said here, even though it may be a whisper of its former haute-couture glory, it's still HANDS-DOWN nicer than any of the new celebuscents made for women these days. I'm a fella and I have no problem wearing this EDC as …Read more
