2015-03-03 09.36.50 (2)Thick, rich aldehydes surrounded by earthy flowers (particularily galbanum, jasmine, geranium and lily) comprise the iconic Charlie (Revlon 1973).  Bold, big and somewhat unisex, Charlie asserts its presence.

In the drydown sandalwood and musk are heavy notes with a lot of sound.  Vetiver is also clear and luminous.  Charlie is not a faint hearted fragrance.  Sillage is certain and longevity is more than decent.

Top notes: jasmine, hyacinth, galbanum, gardenia, and aldehydes.  Middle notes: violet, geranium, white lily, jasmine, coriander, and lily-of-the-valley.  Base notes: vetiver, vanilla, oakmoss, musk and sandalwood. 

It’s been a much better week than the last one in many ways.  There are still many things going on though that are a bit overwhelming however good they may be…

This blog has taken a beating.  I do sincerely apologize.  As I keep saying, if you’re reading, thank you…

Until tomorrow…
