Please join me in welcoming M J Rose author of The Book of Lost Frangrances. I'll be reviewing this one next week and I've heard great things about it.
WEIL - CASSANDRA Cassandra was amongst a series of fragrances created to perfume furs released by Parfums Weil in 1936. A brief topnote of citrus ushers in a good measure of galbanum which cartwheels across a thick, arresting base of resinous benzoin, styrax, oakmoss and musk. There is a huff of sweetness present furnished by vanilla, and a resolute measure of ambergris which serves to intensify the composition. This perfume demonstrated opulence and refinement on a grand scale, and leaves many perfumistas yearning for its return.
