Throwback Fragrance Favorites

 

Each year, the fragrance industry barrages our faces with new releases and editions (dubbed flankers, think CK One Summer).  Within this mass sea of marketing, know that there have been forerunners in the past that have already paved the road for these fragrance free loaders.  Read below for some monumental releases that not only have heritage, but smell totally appropriate in the modern world (not to mention they’re less likely worn by your friends and girls will think you really know your stuff).

Guerlain Vetiver

Year released: 1958

Notes: Lemon, Bergamot, Vetiver, Cedar, Tobacco, Tonka

Wear if you: Like to smell fresh but want it to last; think citrus and woods

Dior Eau Sauvage

Year released: 1966

Notes: Lemon, rosemary, green basil, vetiver

Wear if you: Prefer lighter, unobtrusive scents; it’s bright, fresh, and warm weather friendly (for that Caribbean holiday your taking this winter!)

Chanel Antaeus

Year released: 1981

Notes: Lime, Clary Sage, Myrtle, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Labdanum, Beeswax Absolute.

Wear if you: Want to be bold and exotic and not sweet. Fun Fact: named after the Greek demi-God!

Creed Green Irish Tweed

Year Released: 1985

Notes: Lemon, Verbena, Iris, Violet leaves, Sandalwood, Ambergris

Wear if you: Like if you prefer aquatic scents and only need one. This is the Swiss army knife of scents; wear it for all occasions, all year round from the historic house of Creed.
