    This is a very bright, soapy aldehydic floral from the first half of the 1960s. Green citrus & aldehydes dominate, undergirded by a lovely rose/geranium that flits in & out of consciousness randomly. Very similar to the Detchema by Revillon parfum mini that I have. (I disagree with the reviewer below that it smells like Y de YSL, I don’t perceive that at all.)

    Very much along the lines of those classic aldehydic chypres of their day (1960’s, Y de YSL, Creed’s Irisia for example) but with that complex depth that can be expected from Patou. It’s glorious really but hard to find. Y de YSL is a great substitute for this, especially given it’s price and the fact that reformulations have been very good.

    Hmmm…I put this on today for the first time. Not super appealing straight from the bottle sniff, so it took me a while to get to it. But several scents have blown me away after just that sequence of events. This is not one of them. From the notes and my love of Patou, this should ring every bell for me. Instead I smell soap. Pleasant, light, clean fresh floral with a hint of spice soap. It does smell like a scent for a young 16 y.o., but not a young girl of today. More like what would have been given to my generation at that age, and it would have been possible given I was 9 when it came out. Though I’m not sure anyone in my family or world had even heard of Patou at the time. As far as I know our awareness of Joy came decades later, we weren’t exactly keeping up with French parfums in my midwestern suburb.
    I have learned to not despise a soapy scent, and this is pleasing in its way. It would be more of a summer scent, and definitely not when you are feeling seductive. I’ll try it again next summer. It is surprisingly long lasting for an edt and such a light one at that. Cyclamen is rather an odd floral note, I don’t remember being fond of their scent and that is quite likely what I’m not preferring about it. It is interesting though and quite different from today’s scents and actually, most vintage too.
