Chopard are widely known as a "manufacture d'horlogerie", because they produce most of their watches and movements in-house, as opposed to using base movements of other watch manufacturers. So many 2021 vanillas are cake sweet, cookie like and I just want a vanilla that were popular when I was young n fun. The spices and vanilla compliment one another very well and will give you a uniquely sexy scent that lasts all day/night.

I think I may have inflicted that on myself by absolutely drenching myself in my mother's bottle of original Opium as a child (which this somewhat reminds me of) and getting headaches. Reminds me of: Casmir was a groundbreaker that resembled little else at the time; in many ways it feels as if it could have been an oriental update of Chloe from the 70s. Like I like powdery scents but this is almost straight up baby powder on me with some musk in the background.With the firm resolution to show it to these little rascals once, I started cheerfully and with a few splashes of Cašmir on my neck and the crook of my arm into a fragrant day!

The scent does start with the expected vanilla, but actually very nicely garnished with fresh fruit salad, coconut thankfully very subtle. So spicy and warm perfect for cool weather, I could see this being especially delightful during the winter holidays. Hanae Mori comes close in its fruity caramel-ness but has more almond and berries; Fragonard’s Miranda is their version of Casmir; and both Vanilla Fields and Raw Vanilla were surprising, affordable sniff-alikes minus the complexity of Casmir’s drydown. This scent reminds me of vanilla fields… it smells like smoking cigarettes during off campus lunch in high school and it’s reminiscent of the album ‘In Utero’ by Nirvana… this smells more like the 90’s vanilla fields than the current vanilla fields and smelling this has me in disbelief that this was nearly 30 years ago. It reminds me so much of the Purol balm in a little tin (I don’t know if that’s a European thing only).

I'm smelling more of a vintage Arpege-y vibe sans so much peachy rose and "dust", though I am still an Arpege lover. When I tried it, it began with a spice blast that hummed with the cinnamon, some of the flowers and the underlying scent of peach and apricot. I wanted to like this, as it’s quite the bargain, but it just smells busy, synthetic, and cloyingly sweet to me, like a Tom Ford. Vanilla-dominant frags are not my thing but I had a sample of this and dutifully tried it just to scratch it off my list.

I find it kind of crazy that ylang isn't listed as it's own note because this is a ylang ylang bomb to my nose! Vanilla, myrrh, amber, benzoin, peach and geranium are the most noticeable notes and project you into luxury exotic adventures, and eastern journeys. Hard to believe I made it through the 90's without getting a tattoo or wearing Casmir, but here I am. I absolutely adore it - from the cosy name, the pretty bottle and the warm scent, I like everything about it!It’s fine, it’s nothing that groundbreaking and I like vintage scents but this one does smell a little dated to me. I think the flowers are what keeps the sweetness balanced (I'm looking at you, geranium and carnation).

This too wanes, and what is left is a neutral sweet, ambery, not powdery but almost dusty base accord. It's fresh and warm, I've only been using it during the winter so far so I'm not sure if it's one for the summer but it seems like an autumn/winter scent to me so far. It remindes me Organza Indecence Givenchy with a mix of Burberry Women and kenzo jungle l 'elephant. It's SO good, it brings up so many memories of my happy childhood, I feel butterflies and comfort when I smell it.Perhaps the Lancaster-era vintage was superior, but given Almairac's style of creating strong signatures using synthetics, I could imagine Casmir still being recognizable even with all expensive naturals removed. I accidentally got some on my finger while spraying it on a paper strip, the silliage was insane, very heavy and cloying though. I make sure to use w any of my favorite vanilla/caramel body butters and Sol Janeiro '71 to give it a boost.
