Crêpe de Chine (F. Millot 1925) was made with rare Grasse jasmine and would be much too expensive to make today. It’s vintage florals, 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 charm and sweet restraint.
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!
