Zadig Fragrance Reviews


I agree with the reviewer beneath me- oakmoss is quite noticeable, and- with patchouli as a flag- this is definitely a chypre- quite balsamic and leathery, with pronounced spices and a "dry", elegant feel. Mine is also vintage, but the aldehydes are still present, and as these wear off within the first half-hour, the fruity notes and spices in the heart emerge (it is only faintly floral). It reminds me of Champagne/Yvresse a bit- but nowhere near as "juicy" and "sweet". Strangely, as it develops, it also reminds me of Azzaro PH and Balenciaga PH, as there is a definite note of anise in the blend of spices and a certain balancing of accords... could this be an unattributed Gerard Anthony creation? Either way, quite nice, and worth picking up if you happen across a bottle.

This is a strange one in a good way. However, This review is being done based on a vintage parfum that's so old, the juice looks like dark brewed tea and is not golden like in the illustration above. With that said, I think it's safe to assume the some of the top notes have long since disappeared, so this in no way resembles anything "Oriental". What's left seemes to be more of a faintly sweet (the florals and tolu balsam?) slightly leathery, woody chypre with the emphasis in the vetiver and oakmoss (not listed, but it's there!). It lies in between vintage Repliqué and Crepe de Chine. For those who love the smell of old leathery, oakmossy chypres and could care less about someone screaming "old lady", seek a bottle of this out.
