Category: Floral Woody Musk

Notes: Citrus Blend, lily of the valley, jasmine, nougat, cedar, patchouli, musk

The Bottle: The flawlessly stylish Parisian cousin of Bvlgari pour Femme. An interestingly drape-like, fabric-esque effect is captured in the curving facets of the glass, and complimented by a tasteful touch of ribbon at the neck. Stunningly presented and solid without the dreaded clunkiness of some of its brothers and sisters. ****

The Fragrance: Creamy and beautifully textured, but falls flat for me because I’m simply not a fan of heavy-handed jasmine. The nougat is delicate and soft, a sweet and unusual backdrop that casts the more mundane notes in a flattering, sophisticated light. The citrus blend leans towards a clean, lightly bracing lemon, and freshens the opening nicely. Lovely on the right Diva, but the over-generous bouquet of jasmine is enough to make me wrinkle my nose just a little bit. ***
