No career scent

Today brilliant perfume writer Andreas Båsk gave me this incredibly indecent iconic piece of fragrance... Eau Sauvage, Dior's from 1966 by the one and only Edmond Roudnitska.

No, I won't be wearing this at work...

Love having perfume milestones like this one as references in my collection. Especially the vintage ones that are more untamed. Which reminds me, I need to do a post on this... Most people don't know that perfumes are altered. The Chanel no 5 and Shalimar that we buy today is not the same formula as it was decades ago. Doesn't have to be decades either... So don't throw your old perfumes away. Store them well and then sell them on Ebay for example if you don't want to keep them. Vintage perfume is a magic world. To be continued.
