Age: 45 to 54
Skin type: Dry
Complex and wonderful
This is not a gourmand to my nose, although the open is fig and honey forward in a fabulous way. It seems to change almost hour by hour in the drydown, first heliotrope then sandalwood with a creamy vanilla undertone. When the jasmine stepped forward, I almost died. Long lasting, mysterious, complex...it’s going in rotation with black orchid as my signature scent.
Edited with new info: I’ve been wearing this for three days now and I have to comment on longevity, which is phenomenal. It is still present 24 hours after two sprays, and the lingering skin scent is a truly luxurious, layered vanilla with a hint of wood. The opening blast is bergamot-heavy, but after 20 minutes or so, it settles into a decadent scent. At first I thought this was the perfect unisex fragrance, but once it fully matured as a skin scent, it is hands down a seductive, feminine fragrance. I really love this.
