This fragrance has many memories for me, as this was the signature fragrance my Aunt wore as a young women. This amazing woman is 91 today.
Created by Nettie Rosenstein in 1946, a glamorous legacy is brought to you by Marilyn Miglin, the exclusive owner of Odalisque fragrance!
Odalisque expresses the complex femininity of the ladies during the Rita Hayworth era, making this scent a more intimate, romantic yet glamorous fragrance.
It smells nostalgic and very feminine in that 1940s sort of way- a hint of lipstick in a leather bag, a carefully pressed monogrammed handkerchief, clip-on earrings that smell of the lady's perfume. Created as an elegant accompaniment to perfectly tailored and glamorous dresses, Odalisque it's a high dose of civet that doesn't even try to hide behind the dainty muguet and carnation that make up the fragrance's front.
Top Notes: Bergamot, Aldehydes, Lavender
Middle Notes: Carnation, Rose, Jasmine, Opoponax and Lily of the Valley
