GCMS : "My Sin" (Lanvin, 1980s version)

"My Sin" (in the French original version: "Mon Peche") was the first successful perfume launched by Lanvin, the famous French fashion house, in 1924. At the top of success, in the early 1920s, Jeanne Lanvin decided to create her own Perfumes line, and entrusted this task to a mysterious lady of Russian origin: "Madame Zed", as she was known.
Madame Zed created fifteen different “Lanvin” fragrances over just two years, of which today we know virtually nothing but the names, then she disappeared into thin air.
"My Sin / Mon peche" was the only one of these fifteen fragrances to got a major success and a significant economic return, enough to convince Jeanne Lanvin to open her own perfumes production plant, and to entrust it to André Fraysse, who -just a few years later- created the masterpiece: "Arpege" (1927).

"My Sin" remained in production for more than sixty years before discontinuation, and now the latest version produced (1980s) will be examined via Gas-Chromatogaphy and Mass-Spectrometry (GC-MS).

"My Sin / Mon Peche" is one of the most famous fragrance of the 1920s, and it was obviously 'reformulated' several times during the following decades.
How will this scent perform over the GC-MS ?
