I purchased a vintage (1960's) "Cosmpolitan's Collection of Internationally Famous Perfumes" set with this fragrance. One of those perfumes that needs to blend in with your soul rather than built you into an image of desire. It is definite signature scent material for me in terms of how much I love it and how great it smells on me, but it is such a strongly emotional and special scent that I can't imagine wearing it every day. So I do not have to worry I will smell like those overly sweet vanilla orange blossoms, sweetened tuberoses and candies.

Although I'd like to have this as a potential signature scent, in my mind it will always remind me of her, Clarice Starling, and the grace and fortitude of the women who endured WWII. The benzoin suffocated the flower bouquet, which was either way dominated by lily and a very dry lilac. The top notes of L’Air du Temps Eau de Parfum reveal the luminous freshness of bergamot from Italy combined with the clove accents of pink carnation, creating the fragrance’s unique spicy-floral signature. If at any time you would like to opt out from marketing, you can visit the Privacy Preferences page and select the relevant matches the yellow pictured box and bottle, though the bottle i tested hasnt got all the other writing on it. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I know this is a young girl’s perfume from a softly-remembered youth, but anymore, it reminds me of the perennial carnation in Humphrey Bogart’s lapel in Casablanca. There are already plenty of beautiful reviews, I add mine because my experience seems to be a little bit different.

i get a dry aldehyde type of light (but substantial) powdery soapy clean scent, i first thought Prada d'iris vibes. Yes, but I don't think at the office more on holidays or vacations because it's the kind of sophisticated, white, translucent perfume that relaxes you. Like many perfumes of the time, L'AdT opens with bright aldehydes, soap, a note of cold cream, and a drop of citrus. Top notes are Carnation, Aldehydes, Rose, Neroli, Brazilian Rosewood, Peach and Bergamot; middle notes are Carnation, Cloves, Gardenia, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Rose, Violet, Orris Root, Rosemary and Orchid; base notes are Spices, Iris, Oakmoss, Musk, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Amber, Vetiver and Cedar.For example, some top note citrus scents smell stronger immediately upon application, while a lavender middle note may be sensed after some time from application as the top note evaporates. I sprayed them all, some were more soapy, others more spicy, nonetheless lovely and light in character.

The luscious bouquet of L’Air de Temps opens with a carnation and gardenia accordl aced with fiery accents, giving the scent its distinctive personality. At the base of this timeless, sophisticated fragrance is seductive iris enwrapped the sensuality of sandalwood and the warmth of cedar and vetiver to create the iconic and long-lasting trail. I am 30 years old, and even though this is an old perfume, I think it's a nice professional perfume for someone in my age group. It is sold as a cheapie now, and while I can't attest to the quality of the current iteration, my vintage version is beautiful. Vintage L'air du Temps edt spray in the fluted cylindrical bottle with the gold cap: Because this was a vintage formula, the top notes had gone way off and the opening florals were dank and musty at first spray, and the aldehydes were sour, to say the least.Recently I was given a bottle of LdT by a loved one and it instantly brought back halcyon memories of my late grandmother. I love the sentiment, and the pure floral and clean soap nature of the perfume make me nostalgic for a happy, girlish adolescence that I didn't have. An extremely soapy-spicy carnation resting on a cumulus cloud of “white-floral” musk, but with jasmine noticeably missing from the bouquet — lily and gardenia shine, scrubbed clean of any suggestive humidity, carnality, or indoles. Best paired with a white eyelet nightgown and sleeping with a bar of Ivory soap under your pillow so that you have squeaky-clean dreams.
