Anything similar to the 1955 perfume Intimate? Here's a description:

"Intimate by Revlon was launched in 1955 as a distinctly sexy floral - animalistic chypre fragrance. It opens with crystalline notes of aldehydes, bergamot, rose, coriander and gardenia, leading to the sensual heart of jasmine, iris root, sandalwood, cedar and patchouli and the wild base of castoreum, civet, musk, amber and oak moss."

My mom's grandma used to wear it and she was talking about it the other day.

Thanks!

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with that particular fragrance but reading the description/notes I instantly thought of Lady Death Savage (not sure if that perfume name would interest your mom though!) The notes are: White musk, grey amber, Calabrian bergamot, vanilla absolute, French labdanum, styrax, wormwood, caraway, and bois de jasmin.

I love Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon and Tokyo Milk Tainted Love. Looking for stuff that are similar!

 

 

I think you might be my scent twin! Right now I'm layering Smut and Midway...I suspect you would love that combo--though Midway is terribly hard to find. I also love the Vanilla single note, and you can layer that with anything boozy for a similar effect. Keep me posted on anything cool you discover, because I'm pretty sure I would love it too.  :wub3:

If you like By Kilian's Beyond Love, try Humanite! Though they are of course not exact, the way the tuberose is used is appealingly similar.

Hello,

I'm looking for Bpals that remind me of anything similar to Egoïste from Chanel but the very first version ? (my bottle dates of 1990) Here's a description:

Head : Tangerine, Rose Wood, Coriander
Heart : Turkish rose, Carnation, Cinnamon

Base : New Caledonia Sandalwood, Madagascar Vanilla and ambrette

 

Thanks! :thumbsup:

Forgive me if this one has been mentioned before.  This is a very long thread to read through!

 

There was a scent that Hot Topic used to carry back in the day.  I believe it was an Amy Brown Fairy based one called 'Fire Dance', or 'Fire Dancer', something of that nature.  it was many, many years ago, but I held onto the bottle for quite some time because it was so warm and spicy, but not at all harsh or masculine.  Morocco reminds me of it a little, though I seem to recall 'Fire Dance' having more clove or cinnamon perhaps, something else sharp in it that Morocco lacks a little, but the sweetness and depth is nearly the same.

 

Has anyone any suggestions for what might come close?
