Just received my 5ml triangle tester from the ebay.
This is such a nice vintage scent, really classy, elegant and feminine and it is very similar to Yohji Yamamoto Essential! For me this is an evening scent, I imagine black dress and high heels and champagne and all the movies from 80s, like Moonlighting, Cybill Shepherd must have been wearing that... =)

I used this one in late '80es.
It was the triangular bottle (as Blaiseantoine points out), and the correspondent spray version was identical to the one portrayed here.
I recall it was very similar, almost identical to Aromatics Elixir. Everybody kept asking me if I was wearing AE.
I loved Genny a lot and when I could not find it any longer I switched to Aromatics Elixir.
Yes, the two are very very similar, same concept, same elegance.
Very good, long lasting chypre.
Then reformulation came and it was cheapened and destroyed.
But then it was a
MASTERPIECE

I had it back in the '80s and I still have a mini somewhere, almost gone, in the tringle bottle. That was the real stuff and sooo powerful! It smelled similar to Aromatics Elixir, but it was much more into white flowers and much less herbal/aromatic.
A great scent with great lasting power, sillage, nuances and glory.
Just not anyone's cup of tea.
Back in that time I took these perfumes for granted as if they were going to stay there forever. I had no clue on what would happen later in this era in perfumery.
A few years ago Genny or whoever is Genny now came out with a riedition of this one. I was naive enough to think that they wanted to get rid of old pieces...
I bought a new bottle for very little price in the offer basket, but was so disappointed with the scent. Only a bland resemblance with old glorious Genny.
Vintage or nothing.

Lo trovo simile ad Aromatic Elixir di Clinique ma più leggero, appena l'ho provato mi sembrava fastidioso per l'odore acceso del patchouli e del muschio, dopo qualche minuto ho iniziato ad avvertire le note floreali.
Non è niente di eccezionale, tipico profumo anni ottanta portabile ogni giorno, nulla di seducente o estremo.

Witch potion! Whatever she brews in her pot; be it forest mosses, bitter green herbs or nameless flowers, altogether this stuff is magnetic.
