Taking its inspiration from a historical formula, Liz Zorn's Centennial is as grassroots as a chypre can get. There's a classicism to its structure, a purity to its olfactory profile, that could easily trick the senses into believing a true-blue vintage fragrance is in the air. Between the sexy, slightly melancholic chypres of the Dorothy Parker era and the dry sophistication of the discotheque '70s, it achieves the perfect balance; all of its elements sing in harmony, with nary a dropped note or discordant tone.
