Charlie Oriental Fragrance Reviews

Thanks to my fabulous perfume endowment today, I have 2 full bottles of this first and best flanker of the classic Charlie.

Wow! I was always tempted to plunk down lots of cash for this baby. I guess good things come to those who wait.

After the thunder of YSL Opium and Cinnabar this was perhaps a logical decision from Revlon to spice it up. Indeed, it was a little late in the game as spicy orientals were falling out of fashion by 1988. Charlie Oriental was barely on the market. I love the original incarnation of Charlie from the 1970s and this takes it to the next level.

You get lots of cinnamon and cloves at the opening that last through until the ending. Then the miracle happens. All of the floral notes from the original appear to the skilled nose. There is hyacinth, violet, lily and the whole gang neatly tucked into the spicy mélange. It is definitely cold weather friendly and very nocturnal.

It keeps its feminist independence while it visits Chinatown and becomes Charlie Chan! Its luscious, sensual and would frighten the sugar coated orchid-berry fans of today. Indeed, it was made for women and not little girls.

Had this been released in 1980, it would have outsold Opium et al. Alas, only a chosen few in the perfume world had the chance to experience this. I finally get to become one of those lucky few today!

I love/miss this scent so much. I'm allergic to most perfume but this was one of the few I could wear.

This was the only fragrance in the Charlie range of that time period that I liked. A great little cheapie oriental that smelled more expensive.

An absolutely gorgeous spicy scent!! This was my signature scent 22 years ago when I met my husband. He loved the way it smelled! I just found a bottle on ebay. I can't wait to see if it brings back any memories for him.

Bottle came today. It still smells as yummy as it used to. Husband still loves it!!

My sister wore this every day when she was in 8th grade and I, the kid sister, thought it was an amazing smell. I would love to get my hands on a bottle again and see if my adult self still loves it. It's the only Charlie incarnation I enjoyed.
