Decadence Fragrance Reviews


The bottle I own looks exactly like the Prince Matchabelli version bottle. There is a Parlux bottle with a gold cap and no writing on the bottle. My box isn't dated, nor is the bottle, which is why I listed the Parfums International. If mine is a vintage, that would explain the problem with the dating above as 2005. PM's version is from 1985 and the notes differ as such:
Top: Bergamot, green notes, lemon, orange blossom, peach.
Middle: Carnation, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, orchid, rose, tuberose, ylang-ylang.
Base: Amber, cedarwood, moss, musk, vanilla, vetiver.
I didn't get any plum, apple or raspberry in my version. I did get loads of peach, vanilla and orange blossom, tho. When I said it smelled vintage tho, I meant vintage from decades ago, say from the 1950's or 1960's.
Thus, my review would be for an older bottle than 2005, still called Decadence, similar picture with black cap, different notes, not same manufacturer. (hope that clarifies...)


How does this differ from vintage Decadence?


This is a well-mixed blend of jammy fruits that are richly blended to give a vintage feel to a perfume that's really not that old. If you didn't know the name or year of this perfume you would swear you were smelling a vintage perfume from decades ago. It's full-bodied, thick and lays on a bed of deep woods.
It's a sticky floral, almost narcotic with its sweetness. Decadence is sensual, old-school and more sophisticated than one would expect for its price. Some might call this a stuffy type of perfume, and that's ok. It's just not their style. It's not for everyone. That's what makes perfumes fun for all of us.
Decadence is long-lasting and strong, better-suited for nights. If you're looking for a strong perfume that brings you back to vintages, this might be one that's affordable. It's like walking down a lush garden path, inhaling every bouquet you can, with an outdoor kitchen not far away.
My bottle for reference is made by Parfums International.
