From Fragrantica:

The perfume created by Paloma Picasso - the daughter of the famous painter. This a fragrant self-portrait. Her maternal grandfather was a perfumer, so, as a child, she was familiar with combining smells, creating scents. Her artistic talent is something she inherited from her father, therefore she was very successful in her work as a jewelry designer for Yves Saint Laurent and Tiffany & Co. Her favorite perfume is Chanel Nº 5, so she wanted to create a perfume with an aldehydic accord. Red is her favorite color and black is a symbol of power. This perfume is an elegant floral chypre with a Mediterranian temperament, but because the perfume was very complex, it was very hard to market. She was afraid that her associates would change the formula, but luckily, this didn’t happen. The fragrance opens with a fresh and spicy note of coriander, angelica and carnation. Aldehydes are in harmony with ylang ylang, jasmine and hyacinth. Woody notes of oakmoss, patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, and tobacco blend with original animal notes (castoreum, civet, and musk).

Offered are vintage full splash bottles of eau de parfum in 2.5oz/75ml size. These bottles are very early, without barcodes on the boxes.  Likely early-mid 80s.  They have the true Oakmoss and animal ingredients that are not found in the contemporary version. Samples are made from a contemporaneous bottle. 

Note: Samples are sold by the 1ml. You may purchase as many ml as you like. Samples of 1ml or less will come in a glass vial with a dabber. Samples larger than 1ml will come in small glass spray bottles. All samples will be consolidated unless expressly requested otherwise.
