I guess I expected the same magic I senses when wearing this perfume for the 1st time,when I was 16. Noq qite so: pleasant but "average." No kick. Still, I wonder what other women who first wore this some decades ago think now.

Emeraude by Coty is an oriental fragrance for women. Launched in 1921 it was created by Francois Coty and is a beautiful vintage fragrance - a sharp, aldehydic and citrusy scent that mellows out into a creamy amber/vanilla dream.
Emeraude is a true gem. A drug-store classic and the most widely known and beloved of Francois Coty's fragrances. It was popular in the 1960s. Interesting to note, is that Emeraude is part of the Smithsonian's collection of cosmetics and personal care products displayed at the National Museum of American History.
From a magazine ad where Coty assigns their fragrances to various types of women:
Emeraude - for brilliant sophisticated temperaments of the "delicately imperious" women of the world
Emeraude is still available for purchase although it has been reformulated.
We are decanting from an original parfum de toilette version of the fragrance from the 1960s.
