About this deal

I can smell the rose and the ylang-ylang, the hint of sandalwood, and maybe some of the other notes. It feels like a cuddly and friendly version of the ylang-jasmine-rose aldehydic floral (a la no 5) with a slight peachiness and a less green and more vanillic drydown than the Chanel. I've never received compliments on it or anything, but then in my circles, I am known for wearing all different kinds of perfumes.

has had over the years) as it does Estée by Estée Lauder, which I once bought on impulse and adored. I don't know L'Heure Bleu or Baghari, the other two fragrances it has been compared to, so for me Chanel No5 is the only reference. I don't actually think she smells like Chanel No 5 in detail, but there is a definate connection in TYPE. Nowadays we must value aldehydes, perfume notes we need in pandemic times as much as the warm and cosy notes. I was just kind of shocked at the spray radius and force and wondered what the deal was with it – and maybe what concentration?My parents sniffed the bottle of L'Aimant with the attitudes of people confronting radioactive waste.

However, sniffed in the air as I move my arms about, L’Aimant smells like nothing so much as my mother’s peach pie: hot, tangy baked peaches and a hint of pastry dough, plus melting vanilla ice cream. The L'Aimant eventually got more spicy and woodsy as well, with the cedar and sandalwood notes blending with the florals. This iconic fragrance embodies sophistication and allure, presenting a delicate blend of floral and powdery notes. Ever since Great Aunt Agatha popped her clogs of decidedly unnatural causes - unless you regard strychnine as a natural tonic that is - suspicion has swirled around the village.I get the Waft/Close Up thing from Organza, problem being that I like the waft from that more than the close up. When in costume and in character as a person who lived through the 50's and before that, it is so helpful in establishing character and mood. The gorgeous, compact 50ml bottle is the ideal size to keep in your handbag while you’re on the go, and its stunning design means it’ll look fantastic on your dressing table or nightstand. To me its paradise because I use Santa Maria Novella soaps and it's reminds me notes from there so I am happy. Then in the drydown it turns into this wonderful warm, fuzzy veil that is so comforting and just makes you want to keep smelling it for hours and hours.

L'Aimant has that same powderiness, which I suppose is the aldehydes, but the rose and jasmine seem to dominate in my nose, with a warm,, silky musk underneath. The lasting power is absolutely incredible - today I put on a t-shirt I wore 5 days ago and I still get very clear whiffs of it.

It may all be roses and vanilla on top but that chemical opening and something musty if not downright musky going on down below lurk ominously. Just bought another bottle of L'Aimant which arrived not in the elongated bottle like the main picture here, but in the diamond-like bottle with red box like in one of the ads here on the right of the main picture. To me, it creates the feeling of serenity and warmth, and can be appropriate for office, for dates and for relaxing at home. Originally crafted in 1927 to honor the beloved of its creator, Coty L'Aimant Parfum de Toilette Spray is a feminine and elegant aroma, composed of petal-soft floral aromas, such as Rose, Orchid and Golden Jasmin, and finished with notes of Sandalwood and Vanilla.

how does a hugely popular scent that was enjoyed for decades as a "magnet" become so distasteful and re-coded with the opposite meaning?

The tea roses are nearing the end of the season, after last week's rain they are near fermenting in this fervour. I think L'Aimant is more similar to Baghari than to Chanel N°5 sharing with Baghari the same joyful feeling.
