Crêpe de Chine (F. Millot 1925) was made with rare Grasse jasmine and would be much too expensive to make today. It’s comprised of vintage florals that are delicate and lovely set in a warm, raucous background. Dominant notes in the drydown are perhaps patchouli and leather.
Crêpe de Chine is a balance between wild allure and sweet restraint, as per usual.
Top notes: lemon, bergamot, neroli, and orange. Middle notes: jasmine, rose, lilac, ylang ylang, and carnation. Base notes: oak moss vetiver, benzoin, labdanum, patchouli, musk, and leather.
Sorry this post was left in disrepair for so long. I had a serious emergency with my son and I left this blog to its own devices…
He’s doing well and I’m back. If you’re still reading despite my poorly edited work and shoddy posts, thank you!
