Anne Pliska

1987 was the year the Anne Pliska released her eponymous scent to the world, and it has languished in cult following status ever since. Many describe the scent as being sophisticated and impossibly cool and timeless, and while I agree with the last couple of descriptive terms, I do not see the inherent stern countenance in this perfume that others do. 

The woman who wears this scent containing bergamot, amber, patchouli, geranium, musk, woods and vanilla is not the one getting ready for an art opening clutching a chic black, minimalist bottle, she’s the one that’s surrounded by men at a bar.  Perhaps it’s the chic woman’s, luckier-in-love  sister? Anne Pliska is a sexy perfume, and yes, men seem to respond to it. The perfume opens with slight acidity which barely masks the smooth operating going on underneath. The soft floral notes only have eyes for the cashmere woods, amber and vanilla as they assert their presence gently, because that’s what this scent is ALL about- the vanillic warmth of the drydown. I actually find myself applying this more frequently than I probably should, because I crave that bit of acidity at the outset, but once I’ve accepted that it’s gone, it’s smooth sailing. 

You shouldn’t expect miracles from Anne Pliska. It’s not too far off from a blockbuster like Flowerbomb, but it has more depth and sex appeal to me, it’s the perfect  feminine scent to wear anytime, anyplace.  Anne Pliska is a niche perfume that has been hiding in plain sight for almost twenty five years, and is available in EDP and Parfum Extrait forms.

  1. Carrie! Welcome. :) Very interesting, too, it's not one I've heard of but Diana's fond of Flowerbomb, the thought that a relative unknown hit upon something similar a good 20 years earlier is quite intriguing. Nice review!

  2. Nice review Carrie ! Also, welcome aboard ! This sounds like a sultry, woody oriental !!! I thoroughly enjoy the notes that are listed and can picture this smelling very amorous.

    Look forward to future reviews !

  3. Thank you for the invitation! I am very happy to have joined and can't wait to contribute more. :)

    I was surprised that I was so quickly taken by this. One sniff out of the vial, and I thought "eh", but on my skin, it's pretty close to magic.

  4. I've had a few that were like that. I didn't think much of them at first, but before the wearing was over, I was looking for a bottle !
