During October 1978, the French government issued a law about packages (namely: "Arrêté du 20 octobre 1978 relatif au contrôle de certains métrologique préemballages" ), which appears retrospectively to have great importance on dating perfumes.
MOODS by Krizia, for Women (year 1989)
Not so famous as the male counterpart, the highly praised "Moods Uomo", Krizia Moods "for Women" was a great Woody Floral scent, incredibly warm, and with a strong honey note (sometimes not listed)
A scent suspended between old and modern times.
I was very intrigued when Roberto Garavaglia said, almost absently: "...well, one of the best perfumes we made, many, many years ago... Jenny. It was Jenny. The first one, the original edition. It was in 1987. The only thing I can say about it....it's a perfume that leave you speechless."
GIANNI VERSACE was a legendary designer. Together with Giorgio Armani, he started the "Italian fashion" of the 1980s. Many of the VERSACE perfumes have a great reputation. Batch codes are a bit complicate, and you should check a few tips other than numbers, namely production and distribution.
There are three different Eras in VERSACE perfumes
1) First Era: "Made in France" by Yves Saint Laurent (1981-1988)
2) Second Era: "Giver", Made in Italy (1988-2004)
3) Third Era: "Euroitalia", Made in Italy (2005-present)
When we are chatting about perfumes, it's enough to say: "Italian Wave" to evoke a sort of Golden Age. In fact, it was an Era lasting about twenty years, during the '80s and '90s. A time span long enough to remember extraordinary years, live by many perfume enthusiasts, though quite a few of them live those times in a truly conscious way.
(this is the Italian article. The english one is HERE )) Quando si parla di profumi, è sufficiente dire “Italian Wave”
oppure “i favolosi anni Ottanta”, per evocare un periodo straordinario della storia, che molti hanno avuto la fortuna di vivere, anche se pochi in maniera davvero consapevole. Anzi. Per alcuni, gli anni Ottanta e il decennio successivo sono stati un’epoca in cui il mondo si è trovato invaso da quelli che alcuni definirono “i profumi all’italiana”.
