Missoni by Missoni Eau de Toilette
Geranium, Iris, Jasmine, Rose, Ylang-Ylang.
Amber, Civet, Honey, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Styrax.
I recently purchased a vintage 4.2 oz. bottle with box from a very good seller on the bay. I have no problem giving auction sellers props here because the bad or indifferent ones (unfortunately) are the majority. The good ones leave an impression with me, so I will put out the name of jessiecat as I have with Henry Ong who sells under mrscentman.
Glancing at the listed notes above could have opened numerous doors for Missoni to stroll through. Depending upon how the parfumeur decided to balance the ingredients, this had many possibilities. I had anticipated an animalic floral, but that's simply not the case. There is a sensual quality here, but it's an accent if anything on my skin. Had this been tuned for a masculine release in 82, rest assured the Civet and Honey would have been amped up and aggressive.
Sillage is moderate unless sprayed heavily, with longevity approximately 5 hours on my skin with a light application. Thumbs up from Aromi for Missoni and as I always try to do, allow me to recommend a sample wear in lieu of purchase.
