What Exactly Is A Retro Perfume?
Retro fragrances may include uncommon, vintage, and discontinued scents. To the uninitiated, retro perfumes could be mistaken for stuffy, old-fashioned scents. But that’s not really the case. Despite their age, retro fragrances tend to be remarkably sophisticated and timeless. They’re the perfect way to add a touch of refined elegance to your look, with a unique charm that makes them stand out in a sea of more modern counterparts. And just like the finest classic wines, these scents have endured the test of time and will continue to impress for generations to come. Truly, there aren’t too many things that smell quite as interesting (or carry as much significance) as a retro perfume.
Take A Trip Back In Time With These Best Retro Fragrances
Years after it launched, we’re still addicted to Yves Saint Laurent’s Opium Eau De Toilette. This timeless fragrance comes with a refined, decadent character typified by mandarin, plum, and bergamot, further enhanced with notes of rose, myrrh, jasmine, and carnation. There’s also the more recent, but no less vintage, Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Toilette. This oriental fragrance is tinged with a similar sweet bergamot and zesty mandarin orange blossom accord, which pairs perfectly with the delicate sweetness of lychee, plum, and juicy white peach. Finally, we can’t ever forget (or get enough of) Chanel’s N° 5 Eau de Parfum. This now-and-forever fragrance is one of, if not the most iconic perfumes in the world. Aromatic notes of rose, jasmine, citrus, and vanilla combine with aldehydes to create an aroma that evokes the very essence of sensual femininity. It’s a scent that has stuck around over the years and will certainly continue to do so for many more to come.
