    1. Hi – it is the same Spicy woody oriental family as Youth Dew, except, perhaps, with a more tangerine and sandalwood flavour to it, but it was preceded by Opium (which can be, I suppose, considered its European counterpart). Opium will feature for the late 70s art )

It would be grand to hear from you now!
