I’ve been trying to revisit some of the things I already have and have re-fallen in love with this one. Back in Sept. of 09 I wrote it was “a super-suave combo of the galbanum and the mandarin with tobacco, with the flowers peeping up later before settling into the animal notes and the hay-like coumarin. On me it’s not so dirty, but decidedly sexy in a your-skin-but-better kind of way: as elegant as a Savile Row Suit with a bit of retro-smokiness”
The notes for “Wilde” are listed as “Galbanum, Red Mandarin, Violet, Rose, Night Jasmine, Blond Tobacco, Oakmoss, Coumarin, Musk, Civet and Ambergris”. It also has incredible lasting power; easily 24 hours and works in both heat and chill (we’re getting both right now, 80 in the day and 50 in the evening).
Best of all, it’s still only $50 for an ounce of Eau de Parfum, at their website. I love finding something new, but in this economy it’s nice to rediscover something that’s already in the house, and if I didn’t have this one, at this price it would be a guilt-free indulgence.
So what if anything in your cupboard have you rediscovered lately? Let us know in the comments.
