Description

There are flowers (notably the jasmine) and musk too playing in the background, but I notice that these notes are not evident in the projection. Its longevity is great no argument there but even with four sprays (which I thought would be cloying and suffocating everyone around me) people had to lean in to see what it smelled like!

I have owned several bottles over the years since then and the current bottle that I own is from March 2019.That opening of dry green and coriander so stripped of anything sweet - well it's sharp and almost off putting but now that I know what to expect. I wasn't able to stop smelling my wrist and while i was doing that suddenly a memory came to my head. This fragrance has *nothing* in common with modern day scents that smell of cupcakes and cotton candy, this is a full blown green, 1970s earth goddess medicinal salve - a true to form "aromatic elixir. I couldn't wait to try it so I spritzed a tiny bit on my wrist as I walked outoors and was immediately enamoured. People talk about reformulation panic as if it's an imagined problem, but my new batch bottle definitely does NOT live up to the beast mode reputation.

It is definitely on the unisex scale, not that fragrances need to be gendered anyway: wear whatever you like in my world. I have tried it both on my clothes and on my skin, and for me, while it lasts eternally on clothes, I find the scent matures better on my skin. It's been replaced with about six discernible notes, it's light enough to spray 3 or more times onto the hair, body or clothing, and it's a ghost of it's former self. Update: so a couple days in and after some wears, I now know exactly what some reviewer below meant when they said there is a urine smell to this. I consistently get more complements on it than many of the more popular or more expensive frags in my collection.Rich vetiver, lush oakmoss, and luxurious patchouli are balanced with the soft florally of ylang ylang and rose - a bold blend that stirs the senses and spirit in subtle, pleasing ways. However AE is such a distinctive and utterly unique fragrance, I think if there were any major reformulations more people would have taken note and complained, as they have with other Lauder classics. Over the years it loses some of the fresh, herbaceous nuances and smells a bit softer, smoother, more earthy.

Il colore che richiama è quello delle foglie secche in autunno nel bosco,odori e sentori di umido e di legno,molto evocativo. Its just rained and there is a mistiness about the fallen trees and dried leaves crunching under my feet. And btw, my new bottle carries the batch code A20, which should indicate a very fresh one - or possibly 10 yeas old? While I don’t love AE as much as Ysatis, I will go back and forth comparing the two for a while and try to single out the Ylang Ylang note. it's not my favorite perfume because I'm more of a gourmand girly, but its really nice and i like it!In vintage versions the smoky, juicy, resinous base of fresh bark and wood of noble trees is especially attractive. Fast forward at least a day, maybe it was more like three, I was walking around, and had that "oh my god, what is that amazing smell? I like this "retro" scent (the very young might say "old lady" but it's lacking the powderiness I'd require for that label) although to my nose, it doesn't scream 70's (like I think my Revlon Ciara or Coty Musk do).
