Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

Shocking You by Schiaparelli c1976

Shocking You by Schiaparelli: launched in 1976. I believe that this may be the reformulated version of 'S' by Schiaparelli as the notes are very similar.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a green floral fragrance for women. It starts off with a green top, followed by green, fruity floral heart, resting on a powdery, mossy base.
  • Top notes: neroli, hyacinth, galbanum, bergamot and aldehydes
  • Middle notes: carnation, jasmine, ylang-ylang, orris root, rose, lily-of-the-valley and raspberry
  • Base notes: cedar, benzoin, musk, sandalwood, oakmoss and leather


Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1984.
