digging (into) vintage: Halston Couture, 1988

Posted on

Perfumer unknown.

Halton Couture is an interesting 80s-style scent. It is similar to Halston by Halston, but it has another perfume grafted onto it. It is a mildly green chypre with a rose/amber/patchouli oriental squeezed into the same bottle.

Surprisingly it’s not a train wreck. It’s full of that more-more 80s style, but the rich amber connects the two genres and maintains just enough tension to keep things from getting out of focus.  If you want a similarly constructed chypre/oriental hybrid, try Lancome’s Sikkim, reissued as part of the La Collection line.
