As habitués of the Vermont Country Store know, the place is a treasure trove of oldies, and comeback perfumes. The team there have brought back a new, vintage fragrance by Bourjois from the 1950s called Ramage in French and marketed under the name Endearing to Anglophones...
Advert for Endearing by Bourjois from 1950
Created by renowned perfumer Henri Robert in 1950, you are looking at a perfume by the author of Chanel No.19, Cristalle eau de toilette and Pour Monsieur. Best of all, it is a leather chypre, a category which you cannot call crowded nowadays.
"Originally promoted as the Eau de Cologne that “Makes You Want To Fall In Love,” Endearing, with its wistful romantic scent underscored by notes of leather, is sure to capture your heart once again."
Notes include aldehydes, jasmine, tree moss (Evernia Furfuracea), vetiver. The composition was discontinued in 1990.
This is the eau de cologne version released in 1951, in the original bottle shape.
