Aha! So you have tried vintage Rumeur. I just emailed you about this fragrance, B. I love it too. Exquisite and unique leather, and the most raw animalic base I have yet to experience. Truly gorgeous and worthy of praise....and worthy of a wary respect bordering on awe.

Perfumaniac

Robin, it is incredibly animalic in the base, and the leather and tobacco are subtle, adding just enough roughness. The perfume now by the same name is 100% different. Sad for anyone who buys it thinking it's this beauty...

Valerie

My mother wore Rumeur many years ago. She is now almost 92 and I would love to buy her a perfume that smells almost like it! Any ideas?

Perfumaniac

Valerie, you could get her an original bottle of Rumeur for 30-something dollars! http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40_trksid=p3907.m570.l1313_nkw=vintage+rumeur_sacat=See-All-Categories I got my beautiful bottle of pristine, new-in-the-box vintage Rumeur on eBay. The closest I've come to it is more modern, but alas, also discontinued: Paco Rabanne's La Nuit.
