Isadora Fragrance Reviews

Isadora, created as a tribute to dancer Isadora Duncan 50 years later after her death...

There is a blog thenonblonde.com where blogger writes that it was created for Robert Benson who owned Isadora Parfumes back than and – that Isadora is “a spawn of Shalimar”.. I will include a quote from the blog for you

“The most  familiar part in Isadora is the vanilla-opoponax base. It's more innocent than Shalimar, fuzzier and even bordering on a comfort scent. It doesn't have any of the civet you still smell in older formulations of Shalimar and none of the mysterious smoky incense. Still, Isadora is quite rich and opulent. It smells expensive and well thought-out, and above all: it gives pleasure. “

Another person disagrees slightly and writes that :

“On my skin, Isadora seems to be neither a chypre nor a Shalimar-esque fragrance but something altogether unique. It does have some of the sharpness and mossiness you'd expect of a chypre, but it's so well-blended that it never seems sour or musty the way some vintage chypres can be. it reminds me ever so slightly of Patou Cocktail, but not so much that I'd mistake one for the other. I rather like it. It's definitely interesting and hard to pin down.”

Well, personally I think if to compare Isadora with anything at all – it would go more to the side of vintage Patou fragrances, rather than to Shalimar, but..at the same time I didn't smell earlier than 80-s versions of Shalimar.

Isadora is very distinctive vintage oriental with very interesting leather played around – MINTY leather... Does it make sense?..through oriental balmy qualities you smell camphoraceous like chopped mint leaves...Its intensive, till animalic point because resinous quality of oppoponax gives full-bodiness to the flowers which, in their own turn, mixed with oppoponax, create thick woody-vannilic accord. So it swirls and swirls and swirls...As Isadora Duncan's spontanous free movements in her dances.

I dabbed it on my wrist and ran for one hour afterwards, Isadora was very much present all the way, notes were playing with the wind, very powerful musty leather I would say, I came home, took shower – it still on my wrist as a soft smoky-vanilla – NOW it does reminds me a bit of Shalimar.

The little bottle that I own, featuring kneeling nude stopper, is amazing, it was created by designer Pierre Dinand. Production of the perfume ended in the 1990s.
