Vintage classic perfumes sampler
W hile helping my year-old mum clear out unwanted clothes from her wardrobe to take to the local Oxfam shop, we came across three half-used bottles of perfume stashed in their boxes since the s and s, when she stopped using them. Kept in the dark, the trio were still fresh — it is exposure to sunlight and heat that makes perfumes go off. None of the scents was to my taste but, rather than throw them out, we wondered if they might be of use to someone else. An hour or so searching the internet revealed the existence of a healthy vintage perfume collectables market where enthusiasts are willing to pay good money to get their hands and their noses on old scents that have been discontinued or reformulated. To find out more about the market, I contacted self-taught perfumer and vintage scent collector Sarah McCartney.

One recent evening Julian Bedel was standing amid the cobalt-blue shelves of Fueguia , his perfume shop in lower Manhattan, explaining how he came to be selling vintage batches of his artisanal perfumes as if they were fine wines. In Argentina we call the paramela plant the Mapuche Viagra. In the Tokyo shop customers began to complain that they noticed slight deviations between different batches of the same fragrance. Rather than abandon their scents, the customers took a more gracious approach, asking if they could buy older bottles to ensure continuity in how they smelled. Each was inscribed with the date of the batch. In his new Milan shop, he even unveiled a Vintage Cave to showcase these pricier older scents.

26 Vintage Fragrances Every Perfumista Should Try
Every year since, it has turned out to be the most-read article on Now Smell This. I was less than satisfied with it when I published it, and 5 years on, it's really showing its age. This week, Angie and Kevin are adding to the fun with lists of vintage and men's fragrances respectively, and I'll be making some updates to my original article.
I found that the 1ml vials were inferior because of leakage, breakability, and difficulty opening. It is no secret I love the old perfume houses. I love the idea that many grande dames have worn these perfumes.
