***A Great Additional Discount Is Available!!---Click on my Name Directly Above ( "Listed by...") to learn about my Multi-Sale Discount Offer in my Closet Profile*** Norell by Norman Norell; the iconic American fashion designer and 1943 Coty Fashion Award Winner, was launched in 1968. Norell, known for his elegant suits and tailored silhouettes, is still hailed as a master despite his 1972 passing. As recently as 2010, Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States wore a vintage Norell dress for a Washington Christmas party -- but I digress... Norell Pure Parfum is one of the "Chypre" genre of parfums. This term goes back to Francois Coty who created a 1917 parfum of the same name from fragrance materials that were primarily Mediterranean. The contrast between the fresh Citrus and the Woody-Oakmoss accords is characteristic to this family of fragrances. This wonderful contrast is so noteworthy that a literary reference to chypre is contained in the novel The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett (Knopf, 1929), in which the character Joel Cairo is described as carrying a chypre-scented handkerchief as part of his homosexual persona. This fantastic contrast is also what makes Norell Pure Parfum delightfully unisex. It is simply wonderful -- Radiant, buttery warm and redolent of burnt sugar, amber and musk. Composed by Master Perfumer Josephine Catapano, the top notes are Lavender, Mandarin Orange, Galbanum, Hyacinth, Bergamot, Narcissus and Lemon; middle notes are Mimosa, Coriander, Carnation, Iris, Gardenia, Cinnamon, Orchid, Arum Lily, Orris, Jasmine, Ylang-ylang, Rose and Cardamom; base notes are Sandalwood, Amber, Musk, Vanilla, Oakmoss, Vetiver, Cedarwood and Myrrh. For aficionados of any gender enamored and entranced by rich, deep and deliciously dark fragrances -- This IS for you. Available as shown; brand-new and unused; 1/8 Fl. Oz.
