J’ai Osé by Guy Laroche Review
J’ai Osé may have a chypre profile, but that is not a dead giveaway to its age. While similar fragrances may feel old-fashioned, its appeal continues even forty years later after its original release. It owes this to the sophisticated mix of oriental florals with orange blossom and peach, and just the right amount of spice. The surprise is not all embedded in the top and middle notes, however, because smoothness enters with musk and amber.
Does not feel old even when considering its release date and chypre profile
Is sophisticated yet easy to wear
Loud and could easily overwhelm
J’ai Osé has a different profile than most current women’s perfumes, which is probably due to its age. It was released in the late 1970s by Guy Laroche, the same house that brought its highly popular Drakkar Noir. Made by perfumer Max Gavarry, its notes are aldehydes, peach, coriander, patchouli, jasmine, sandalwood, orris root, rose, amber, oakmoss and musk.
