Revlon launches Scoundrel fragrance in 1980. The fragrance was advertised by the actress Joan Collins, also known as Alexis Carrington from the very famous TV soap "Dynasty." The scent is advertised under the slogan "Seize the moment" as witty and successful, designed for women with great personal style. Joan Collins describes it as sophisticated, elegant and a bit sexy.

Top notes: aldehydes, pineapple, bergamot, artemisia, mint and marigold. Heart: jasmine, hyacinth, mimosa, peach, cyclamen, lily of the valley, rose and tuberose. Base: cypress, cedar, oak moss, musk and raspberry.

The fragrance is available as pure perfume, and as a cologne spray since 1981.

I used to wear this (and love it) in the 1980s like many other reviewers. I found it recently on Fragrancenet, and since it was still inexpensive, I thought I'd relive my youth... Either my tastes have changed significantly (even though I wish shoulder pads would come back) or it was vintage stock that has gone strong, because the bottle I got packed a whallop! I could smell Scoundrel even before I opened the package... it permeated EVERYTHING, like a closet sachet on steroids. The scent did bring back memories, but I had to get it out of the house. Too much even for a commanding presence like Joan Collins (who still looks like a million bucks)!

I've been on a bit of a quest to amass fragrances that remind me of my youth. When I was a young teenager, I was given a mini of this as a gift. I wore it till it was gone, having no idea what a mature powerhouse fragrance this was. I just bought a huge bottle of this and received it today, and the scent memory has returned. This is a huge, powerful floral, not very aldehydic or spicy to me. The florals are strong and slightly bitter, and the jasmine a bit indolic. There is a mild soapy quality that is subtle and sporadic, all on a green woody base. A drop of this fills the room, and its a cologne concentrate. I cannot see wearing this often but I am glad I got this back into my wardrobe.

So this scent is still available? I had no idea! I hope the perfume sold now has not been reformulated, as I LOVED the original Scoundrel. This was my first introduction to tuberose (although it is not a top note).
Scoundrel is a heavy, rich, extremely sweet scent, with amazing longevity and sillage for an inexpensive fragrance. I am seriously thinking about buying some, but am worried about possible changes.

Joan Collins used to be the face of this one and I remember seeing an interview with her a few years ago where she mentioned that she used to promote a fragrance but actually thought is smelled like room spray. I wonder if Scoundrel was the fragrance in question? Or was it Spectacular? Whatever the case, it's pretty rare that you hear what a celebrity REALLY thinks of a the fragrances they put their names to.

My mother wore this for a long time, alternating with Chanel No. 19, which I also love. (She and I have very similar tastes.) Smelling it always reminds me of her.

what's with the pineapple note in almost half the perfumes released around 1980? I wonder which aromachemical caught like a wildfire around that time
