Vanille Absolu description
Is there no more sinful and alluring scent than vanilla? The ultimate “come hither” note in perfume – promising both sensuality and innocence, sweetness and debauchery, and impossible to say “no” to.And what’s worse is that it seduces other notes as much as our senses. Vanilla is right at home no matter what notes are around it in a perfume – bright, tangy citrus or smoky, exotic spices all shine brighter when a delicious dollop of vanilla is present.
Montale’s Vanille Absolu features its vanilla note front and center, while still allowing the spices behind it their own elegant power and texture.It’s warm, and subtle – Vanille Absolu is not sticky, wearable candy.It blends the sweetness and spice together so that none of the notes are too loud or outspoken, creating a soft layer of appealing curiosity for anyone lucky enough to encounter it on your skin.
The vanilla note is brimming with a liquor-like extravagance, there’s nothing synthetic or cloying about it.The cinnamon and clove are lightly applied and not sharp in the nose, simply content to hum along in the background and not immediately take over the profile of this perfume – a rarity for these notes.
Vanilla Absolu wraps itself around your senses like a gentleman draping your coat around your shoulders, with an elegant confidence that defines this scent throughout the length of its wearability.
The longevity is typical for Montale – you will be able to experience its sweet, sophisticated pleasures for several hours after one spray, with sillage that is powerful, but not overwhelming.Having said this, it’s best to go easy when applying it – this line isn’t known for being modest in the least.If you love wearing gourmands for an evening out, rest assured that one shot will last you all night and most likely past midnight.It’s also safe enough to spray (lightly) on your favorite outfit, because waking up the next day to a scent this delicious and sensuous is the best way to remember the fun you had the night before.
