Old School Floral Chypre
Shiseido MURASAKI is a classic floral chypre perfume with a fairly big dose of oakmoss and galbanum. There is a greenish cast to the whole composition, but it's dark green, and ultimately the chypre character dominates to my nose.

There are many other perfumes of this type, and I do not think that this one is unique, although it's good for what it is. If you like Chanel no 19, then you'll surely like MURASAKI. If, on the other hand, you find dark floral chypres old fashioned (or old ladyish!), then this is not for you.

This is a classically composed perfume with a ton of notes and a fairly imposing presence. No surprise, really, since it was launched in 1980.

For serious perfumistas only!
