Ma Griffe - Carven

Ma Griffe by Carven is one of the great "Post War Classic's". A wonderful fresh Chypre. In its distinctive green & white packaging it is as vibrant as a warm spring day. Light and fresh with a burst of Citrus top notes warming down to a floral bouquet of Lily of the Valley, Rose, Jasmine & Iris.The base is warm but not sweet with Oakmoss, sandalwood & Vetiver. Calming the senses on the warmest of days. Launched by Parfums Carven in 1946 it was another winning fragrance from "Jean Carles" one of the great perfumers and the expert "nose" behind many great fragrances of the decade. It is a perfect fragrance for daywear and very Spring like in character.

The fortunes of "Parfums Carven" have waxed and waned over the years and distribution rights for this timeless fragrance bought and sold. All bottles offered by Sublime Sourcery are past vintages. THE CURRENT VERSION (2006) CANNOT BE RECOMMENDED IT BEARS NO RELATION TO THE GREAT ORIGINAL FRAGRANCE. Our recommendation is to scour the world for vintage bottles and treat them like liquid gold.

Maja - Myrurgia

A quintessentially Spanish fragrance it was the classic creation of Esteve Monegal founder of the famous Spanish fragrance company Myrurgia. Created in 1918 Maja has endured until.... 2002. Myrurgia was acquired by Puig who set about reformulating it in that year. The result in our view - disastrous. It joins the ranks of dozens of sugary sweet non-descript launches - superficial and soulless creations. Monegal would not be amused. These precious bottles are the old formula. We hope this lovely Soft Oriental evokes the heart of Spain for you to. (See our fragrance of the month page for more about this fragrance).

Musk - By Alyssa Ashley

Musk by Alyssa Ashley is quintessentially 60's, it conjures up images of 'Flower Power' and exploration of all things Eastern, Exotic and Oriental. These bottles date from a time when "Musk" was still made by "Houbigant" that legendary name in perfumery. Still produced today, you may like to compare it with its up to date counterpart. Is the recipe the same? let us know. Musk was a favourite perfume of Napoleon's legendary love Josephine , and some say a powerful aphrodisiac!!! Of course modern musks are synthetic but who can tell the difference. We wonder if Josephine would have approved of this 20th Century creation. Originally launched in 1968 the bottles we are offering for your consideration date from 1989/90 .This is a rich floral aldehyde -

Top Notes of Orange Blossom & Bergamot, a rich middle of Iris, Jasmine, Rose, Ylang Clove and Aldehydes and a heart of Musk, Oakmoss Blue Amber and Tonka Bean.. Softly seductive delicious!!!
