Apropos by Anjou c1940

Apropos by Anjou: launched in 1940.

Fragrance Composition:

"The second Anjou fragrance is named Apropos . . . and rightly so. A woody-mossy-leafy type, it is appropriate for many women and many occasions.."

So what does it smell like? It was classified as a woody-mossy-leafy forest blend chypre perfume. There are no official notes listed anywhere so I am using a vintage 1950s perfume nip to describe what I smell:
  • Top notes: aldehydes, bergamot
  • Middle notes: herbs, carnation, lily of the valley, spices, lavender
  • Base notes: cedar, sandalwood, patchouli, tonka, oakmoss, benzoin, musk and amber

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. Apropos was still sold until around 1970.
