Vintage Summer-Time Favorites & Common Scents
*Malmaison has been discontinued and can never be resurrected because of- IFRA restrictions on high percentages of some of its key scent components (eugenol or basically, clove oil).
For some reason it seems I crave floral musks most in the heat of summer, and musky carnation scents in particular. Confession: this year, I've been giving in to Love's Baby Soft on sweltering nights when it stays really hot outside. Age be damned, I absolutely relish it's appealingly light version of sweet and spice. Another carnation based scent, it conveys the coolness of dewy fresh carnations and a carries a dry down of the softest tinged musks. Splashed, it has positively tonic effects and would be perfect for those who avoid citrus but desire a refreshing cologne.
