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.
