Balenciaga Ho Hang “That ’70s Fragrance”
Softer than I expected from a bottle like this. To me very well blended and such an original take on a fougere type composition with packed orientals. I don’t fill up the room and it is a very easy wear out in public. The orange is not crisp but faded into aromatics of a deep lavender. Patchouli is really smelling good. The Fragrance dna smells of metallics it’s a smell I remember as a kid on older people. I believe this was in the higher end prices back in the day.
I was told by the store manager that three of us had a shot at this over the past year. He never pushes his treasures left that’s part of the charm of the store. But made sure all three of us smelled it on testers. This time around somehow this just was a beacon on the shelf. As soon as I smelled and put it aside to buy he told me.
QUESTION FOR COMMUNITY??? Anyone know the first fragrance to feature Patchouli, Lavender, and Vanilla as main notes? This fragrance now precedes the last one I had. I want to find the original and give it it’s due credit over and over again. As many houses have seemed to copy this as an offering.
