Scaasi Fragrance Reviews


I was sad to hear of Arnold Scaasi's passing this week. I have always loved his fragrance, his couture, and I especially enjoyed watching him on the Home Shopping Network with his beautiful jewelry designs. His dry sense of humor made him so fun to watch.

For those of you who have not experienced his perfume, please give it a try. It is still very reasonably priced online, and it is quite an intricate huge floral. I would compare it closely to Giorgio or maybe the original Chloe, however, I feel that this one is a bit more wearable (still in small doses).

Rest in Peace Mr. Scaasi, we will miss you but your legend lives on!


For the past year or so I have been on a mission to discover/rediscover/understand 'old school' (prior to 1990 -hello, its only 25 years) and Scaasi fell into the mix.

While I do admire the fashion design sensibilities at work in the creation of the scent (btw the packaging is beautiful) based on the reviews I approached this blind buy with a wierd combination of caution (riot in a whorehouse? interesting imagery...) and abandon (as in 'how bad could this possibly be?'). I'm glad I took a chance because even though I find it somewhat 'light' compared to my beloved 80's oriental sillage bombs it is really very lovely and wearable. You won't come across this as you amble through the crowds in the mall or get in an elevator with a gaggle of girls.

For me Scaasi, with one spray to the wrist, opens with a burst of tuberose softened by a melange of lemon and fruity florals then fairly quickly presents major apricot. The cycle of fruits and florals repeats and devolves over a period of 2-3 hours and I think my only complaint relates to longevity but then I only did one short spray to the wrist. Greater application could increase the length of the show but I would be careful with this one; it is a dark juice and overdoing the application could be lethal.

If you enjoy extinct designer scents and remember the 80's you might truly enjoy this fragrance. I didn't expect to love it but I do and will enjoy the heck out of it for as long as i can find it.

Interestingly enough, I can understand why Scaasi did not achieve the popularity of some of the 80's classics.

While I like all of the notes, the fresh edp sample I received had very gentle sillage and little "POW!" compared to other fragrances of this ilk. On my skin there was also very little longevity, though while it lasted it was pleasant enough.

Unless this gentle floriental hits it off perfectly with your chemistry, I suspect Scaasi will remain in the "pleasant enough" categeory!


Wow, that's an odd one. The first surprise was when I sprayed it on my wrist and saw brown oily liquid (probably as it was pure perfume). Great Scott, what if I sprayed it on clothes! Heavy scent, reminds me of solid perfume- there's a similar note in all solid scents. So this one is a liquidified solid by the smell of it. Very serious, intense and dark, that's a lot of spicy flowers, megaton strength really. At this stage I don't see myself wearing this in public.
The situation changes in the dry down stage. Dry down in Scaasi is sweeter, gentler, fruitier and muskier. Vanilla and civet in combination smell classy and expensive and I keep sniffing my wrist non-stop. The most likable stage in this perfume, lovable actually. I would wear this gladly, even at home at first, like a sinful treat for me alone.
UPD: the staying power is tremendous, almost 2 days already. The last stages smell like my beloved Turbulences, which is an added bonus. Another bottle on the way.


This stuff is a riot in a Whorehouse..I have the vintage parfum and it is the definition of a powerhouse Floriental..Everything but the kitchen sink and yes a close relation to the 80's formula of Fracas.


This is a no holds barred slightly peachy tuberose perfume with the 80's stamped all over it.

Way too dated to wear now unless you want people to wrinkle their nose and move away from you.

Good quality but not a wearable classic.


I had the fortune of stumbling upon a big full 1oz bottle of this in parfum concentration. This is a light, fun fruity floral that is actually quite nice and smells fairly high-quality. The fun, hesperidic opening opens up to a breezy bouquet of flowers with a touch of apricot skin. The high-quality floral center reminds me more than a little of the excellent Coco Mademoiselle. The notes listed are more or less fully represented in the fragrance itself.

This is a fruity floral that represents the genre well. Much nicer than the modern stuff.


I was given this perfume as a present by a very classy and sophisticated lady, who is passed away now. It was stolen from my app.t many yrs. Ago and i wonder if it's still being sold in the US. This is not a proper review, but I remenber I loved this perfume and the bottle design. in the same robbery they stole also a brand new big bottle of Panthere de Cartie!
