Crêpe de Chine

2015-07-18 17.15.37 (2)

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!
