Arpege Perfume by Lanvin — 1963

I used to wear Arpege — before Lanvin, in a snit, cut off sales in the US because they thought it was being sold at outlets that were lacking in glamour (I bought it at Penney’s, which…yeah). I don’t know if it’s back on US shelves, but I bought a bottle online recently, and it appears they’ve tinkered with the formula, because it just doesn’t smell the same now. It smells very harsh. Pity.
