Let’s go retro, and you’ll always be in style
Five perfumes that have stood the best of times and ones we can’t help swatch back over and over again. These five perfumes are old classical-retro-vintage fragrances created by the master perfumers of the 20th century.
Created by Francis Fabron in 1948 with a much elegant and classy style of two intertwining doves as a symbol of peace, is put as the stopper. The fragrance was launched after World War 2. The scent for over 65 years (still) as one of the most popular and beloved fragrance of the House of Ricci’s is joyous fruit floral garland laden with peace, rose, jasmine with a subtle clove/carnation note.
As the scented symbol of woody spicy masculine colognes since 1934, the scent is still admired for its old-world charm by the generation of fragrance lovers.
Perfume designed at the height of disco nights in 1975 at Studio 54, by Halston under his name with Berard Chant and housed it in the unforgettable flacon designed by muse, model and jeweler Elsa Perreti has set records of second highest selling perfume in history only behind Chanel NO.5!
Haltson is Chypre Floral to be reckoned with. It was wore by anybody was anybody including the designer’s models and friends including Jerry Hall and Liza Minelli. This scent character is bold and strong and wants to be noticed. The opening is very green mixed with light citrus, peach, ylang-ylang, and Iris with a base of earthy oakmoss.
Perfume is a way of stopping time. You smell a beautiful scent and you remember something.
Composed by master perfumers Harry Fremont and Alberto Morillas, changed the marketing perfumes in 1994 with its neutral scent. The fragrance is over twenty years old and is still a top seller. Composed with fresh and citrus notes with a hint of musk housed in a utilitarian bottle that was designed to appeal boys, girls and just about anyone who was hip at the time. The scent was featured even sexier with ads featuring grunge clad models like Kate Moss by the Calvin Klein.
First by Van Cleef and Arpes was launched in 1976 was and true to its name was the first perfume from a luxury jewelry company and was the first major fragrance created by legendary perfumer Jean Claude Ellena (who was the in house perfumer for Hermes from 2004-2016). First sparkles like a rare jewel. From its opening of an aldehydic top evoking the finest champagne then bursting into fresh floral notes of rose, iris and orchid enveloped by peach and lemon and a green accord. The epitome of glamour and elegance.
