About this deal

Read more about the condition New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging is applicable). After a break from the world of perfumery, Halston 101 for men and Halston Couture for women were launched in the 1980s. 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.

Halston is a full-blown green chypre with heaps of oakmoss that feels surprisingly soapy and also dusty to me, it's very long-lasting and I can't say that I like it. It finishes as a woody amber, oakmoss and incense skin sent that will have you sniffing yourself for hours.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. 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. It does smell like the current available, but it's smoother/deeper and smells much less chemical/synthetic (cheap)- which makes sense.

As time goes on the woodiness starts to emerge but there is a lingering tar smell, bitter and pungent. The scent is composed around chypre and floral notes and has been a favourite for more than 3 decades so far.

This was my BFF's signature scent in high school, and I recently bought her a brand new vintage splash.

I own the original Armani vintage perfume 80's and now have Halston (maybe a newer reformulated) Eau de Cologne.The smell on me starts sharp, then becomes powdery and warm and soft, at times it feels like a hint of Private Collection hides, but then it is replaced by a woodier note. The mint opening dissipates fairly quickly on me, and in the middle it's warm, very incense-y, with a bit of spice. Two of my favorites are Lancôme Magie Noire and Clinique Aromatics Elixir which are both 70's creations. Chant had headed the Original's formulation, but the movie suggests that a woman was integral in pulling threads of conception, and working hand in hand with Halston himself. And, like many of you, I was naturally captivated by the section nodding to perfume production and distribution.

It is an earthy, dark green, very heavy hitter with what feels to me, a cucumber-like note at the top.I had both, alcohol free and "normal" versions and indeed - there are differences between these two fragrances. Today at my place the weather is humid and rainy, and the sharp bitter marigold note completely overwhelmed the other sweeter notes in Halston (and the other fragrances I own), and I had to scrub it off. I purchased my first bottle of this when I first started working in a cosmetics/perfume counter at the age of 18, in 1980. Halston Perfume by Halston, Launched by the design house of halston in 1975, halston is classified as a refreshing, woody, mossy fragrance.
