Occur! Avon Fragrance – introduced around 1962 was sold through late 1990s in a variety of decanters over the years – DISCONTINUED

Top Notes: Aldehydes, Bergamot, Cardamom, Coriander 
Middle Notes: Muguet, Francinsense, Vetiver, Myrrh, Jasmin, Patchouli, Carnation
Base Notes: Amber, Leather, Honey, Moss, Musk, Castoreum, Vanilla, Civet

If a customer would like to find a new fragrance to replace this it helps to know this was a heavier earthy, spicy with some light essences of carnation, vanilla, and bergamot.  It was not very floral – just earthy and spicy… I would recommend Surreal Garden (because it is earthy and green with patchouli), Night Magic Musk (because it is musk), Imari Seduction is a stretch… but may be a good match if the customer would like something a little softer thse days… it shares some of the same elements… but lacks the spice she probably loves.  This also had leathery notes, something that is normally used in men’s fragrance; Occur! was certainly a feminine fragrance regardless.  (Chanel No.19 is an example of a popular women’s fragrance with leathery notes, as well.)  If she would like to try something spicy with a bit of floral I would certainly recommend Christian Lacroix Rouge… but although the top notes are spicy this seems to become very floral, but it is worth trying.  But again, these are where I would begin – in this order: Surreal Garden, Night Magic Musk, Imari Seduction, then Christian Lacroix Rouge.
