YVES SAINT LAURENT OPIUM (1977) VS ESTEE LAUDER CINNABAR (1978)
Filed under Flowers
So which one’s which☺?
En quel sens?
Which one is the trashy glamour puss and which one is the classy broad? I’m messing a little, don’t take me too seriously, just feeling playful today☺
In my view neither is classy, and Debbie Harry wasn’t quite right for the scents either (I just like the picture). I reckon of the pictures, the tiger is the most accurate.
I do find Cinnabar a tad more staid than Opium, but both are over the top indeed. I don’t wear them, I don’t think they suit me at all, although I’m not one to shy away from opulence in perfumery. But these two, hmmm they’re just a bit too opaque. Rich, filled to the brim with spices and balsams, and yet so burgeoise in a way. For me neither is truly scandalous or truly having fun.
Debbie Harry is totally rocking Vol de Nuit. Nothing else for Zebra.
