Why should I buy it? Launched in 1932, this floriental smells remarkably similar to any number of brands of Indian incense or Middle Eastern attars. A sweet, deep, amber and musk fragrance, lightened in the topnotes with my three favorite florals, this un-fussy, straightforward classic might actually surprise you. I've been wearing the eau de cologne, but am going to definitely order the perfume. I figure for that price, how could I really go wrong?
