Oscar de la Renta
I just discovered Oscar even though it came in 1977. To me this fragrance is just like L’Air du Temps. I loved L’Air du Temps when it came about the same time as Oscar. These two fragrances are a great substitute for Chanel 5. Chanel 5 isn’t strong enough for me as it was 25 yrs ago.
Its so light and feminine- the jasmine. That’s what makes it so pretty. All 3 of these perfumes have that in common, the jasmine and roses. How can you wear Oscar in blue jeans? You have to have a dress on with Oscar, even if it’s a casual one.

L’origan is beautiful and the vintage is unmistakably better than the current version that has more synthetics in it to replace some real ingredients.
My husband asked if I just sprayed perfume and I said yes, did you want to smell those potato pancakes I just made? (He doesn’t eat them) so I think he prefers the Oscar DE la Renta.
