SOTD: Chanel No. 19 Parfum, or, what would a witch wear?
WARNING: Rhapsodizing ahead again.
Given that I've sampled hundreds of perfumes and own dozens, and that more of them than I can list were absolutely delicious, that's no small statement.
I'll say it again: This one is my favorite.
I can't do it justice in description. The best phrase that I've seen isn't mine - it refers to No. 19's "unsheathed green claws". There are companions to the green, the rose most apparent, but galbanum is the queen. Today, the witch queen.
This one is my favorite. I have no more words.

You know, I actually prefer this in vtg edt. I also have a small bottle of vtg parfum, but I love the edt best. It's hard to find, which sucks.ReplyDelete
Well, that's very interesting. I do hear about notes in the vintage that I've never detected in the modern version - the leather for example; I've never gotten leather from No. 19.ReplyDelete
