This perfume is truly a classic, born in 1945. It has all of the class, mystery and intrigue that a perfume of this age that has stuck around should have. From top to base, the note profile was indeed built to last. The top notes are aldehydes, African orange flower, green notes, peach and bergamot. The middle notes are gardenia, lilac, tuberose, jasmine, lily, lily-of-the-valley, iris and spices. At the base, notes of civet, oakmoss, musk, benzoin, sandalwood and amber abound. This fragrance will not be forgotten any time soon, that is certain.
