I am surprised that I have not written a review of this. My now husband, then boyfriend, wore this in the 1980s and I have a bottle of vintage Lagerfeld for men. Also known as Lagerfeld Classic, it has been reformulated and re released in the same bottle - silver circle top, so best bet for the old version is to find a bottle with limited fragrance ingredient list. The Lagerfeld release from 2014 …Read more

This is for Vintage HR edt, new dead stock mini sample bottle. I assumed that I would love HR because I am fond of guerlains vintage fragrances and I have read reviews comparing it favorably with Shalimar. (My favorite Shalimar is vintage disc bottle edc which is less heavy bodied and less powdery than oth Shalimar versions). Sadly HR does not work for me. My skin chemistry does well with scents …Read more

Really a 3.5 as I am not really a floral person. Green, fresh bright lily. I didn’t think this was particularly marine or oceanic, but it’s been a while since I’ve worn anything with saline notes. Nor did I think this was particularly spicy. No vanilla dry down like Lutens Un Lys.

I have a cute mini bottle, about half the size of the full bottle. If your idea of hyacinth is Chamade, then this well blended, smooth hyacinth is Chamades civilized mild mannered granddaughter. On my skin chemistry, it’s relatively pleasant and innocuous. it’s sweet, but not narcotic like some honeysuckle scents. I’ve worn a lot of Annick Goutal and 9nly lately c9me to understand that they …Read more

I used to wear this a long time ago when I was on a Goutal journey. It smelt clean and soapy on me. I don’t recall any trace of mango. My mom sniiffed me and said I smelt like generic (cheap) hotel soap. I switched to Eau d Hadrian whihc smelt like pledge furniture polish on me, then Eau de Sud. Recently I came across a bottle mini of Goutals gran amour, which seemed like a well blended …Read more

I have the ultra face cream with SPF. I am NC 30-35, mature combination skin, prone to hives and milia. This is a bit too rich for me in the summer and caused some whiteheads which is unusual for me.

I am on my second container of this cream. I use it twice a day (sometimes more because of overheated city apartment living) and I have combo oily/dry patchy, milia, problem mature skin. It is one of my favorite products because it is slowly but surely normalizing my skin -- getting rid of the patchiness, regulating the oil and making me naturally more matte. Please see my review under P50 for …Read more

Note: VERY IMPORTANT to take Zinc tablet on a full stomach, like a piece of bread or something substantial to avoid extreme nausea and barfing. NOT just liquid like tea or coffee. I learned this the hard way. Needless to say. I won't forget again.

Two years ago my doctor recommended that I take B12 and D supplements. At the time, I was relatively clear skinned …
