Halston by Halston for Women - 3.4 oz Cologne Spray
About this deal
You won’t really notice any difference between a product purchased from Perfume’s Club and a product purchased from a seller in our new Marketplace. On a bad day, Calendula reminds me of nursery rhyme my mother used to sing to me about a little girl who had a little curl. The Halston fragrance was taken over by Elizabeth Arden, though still retaining the same name, it now remains as a curious relic of a forgotten brand. I used to wear Halston in the 80's and 90's and loved it, however, the last bottle I bought had far less scent and was some oily concoction that ended up in the trash.
Jasmine, musk, and wood resolve the fragrance and make an timeless, classy fragrance you could wear with a low-cut dress and a dangling pendant, sitting seductively in a dimly, warmly lit corner of an old hotel bar. I just don't know where you could wear it without the consent of Human Resources or the Church Committee.That world doesn't change, it's always dusk, late autumn, hasn't snowed yet, burning wood and warmth of any kind is far away, rotting leaves, moss on oaks but not damp. I think just about everyone in my circle who went to clubs to dance disco wore it then, men and women. r/fragrance is an inclusive, adult community for discussing finished retail perfumes and other scented personal and home-care products. The floral notes are those 70s, natural smelling florals (it says Jasmine, cedarwood, carnation, ylang ylang, rose. In the show, Elsa Peretti finds a trinket at a market which she later fashions into a necklace by attaching it to a leather strap.
Halston skips the fun of the launch parties, of which there were two: one at Halston’s 62 ndstreet apartment in Manhattan, the other in San Francisco’s I. It’s not just about the beautiful people that made it famous, it’s about the feeling of letting go, having the time of your life and mixing with the crowd. The vintages are leaps and bounds better than the contemporary Halston, likely because what is a chypre without oakmoss? The one that Steve (Rubell) will pick to come inside and dance the night away with Bianca Jagger, and Elizabeth Taylor, and Jerry Hall, and Andy Warhol. The notes don't smell stronger or anything, but you can def tell one is synthetic and one is made from a time when quality and natural ingredients mattered.
Maybe that's why I like this frag so much now, I've lost a lot of my own sweetness over the years and gotten more complex and sharper. A beautiful, elegant, complex classic which, quite unfortunately, I cannot wear due to a consistent headache-response that is in opposition to the way the fragrance pleases me in all other ways. The patchouli is persistent and entirely pleasant with a warm and inviting dryness that is rounded out by the oakmoss and sandalwood. This woody mossy fragrance has a blend of citrus, melon, peach, floral, jasmine, rose, marigold, amber, patchouli, musk, incense, and moss. In real life, Halston’s nose also worked for IFF, but the nose behind Halston was a “tweedy Frenchman” named Bernard Chant.
This would be very glamorous on a daring young woman who wants to stand apart from the gourmand gang. I get the orris with the jasmine, ylang, and more of that carnation blending into something outrageously sexy on my skin. I can't deny it's someone's favorite but not me as i had high hopes for it but it turned the opposite. And it’s in this description, and process, that the show strikes upon precisely what makes perfume so special and so personal. There's also that cozy and comfortable aspect to it that makes it so easy to wear at Christmas time.It not a messy composition, it's cold woods in a dream where the wolf is chasing you and you're lost.
Even if we don't like the fragrance, I believe it is good to educate one's nose, especially with fragrances that have a lot of historic weight to them. With a concentration of essences between 2-4%, it tends to be much more affordable than other options. Some spiciness creeps in, adding a welcome warmth and some depth, and it becomes quite balsamic in its middle stage. It's almost like some fresh-faced midwest ingenue wandered into Studio 54 and decided to make it her scene. I get compliments when I wear it out, so if you are a man thinking of trying this one out, don’t hesitate.
A group of old ladies next to me at the bowling alley were wearing this during the day and it seemed like they bathed in it because it was super strong and nauseating. Sure enough, on Christmas morn, I spotted the wrapped perfume-sized box and with anticipation of being transported into floral rapture, I eagerly open the package and found. She/Halston tosses me on my head and now 6 hours later, she is still lingering in my head and on my wrist.
