Flambeau fragrance notes

Reviews of Flambeau

I got my hands on a bottle of this for cheap.

Torchy indeed! Big notes on top are lily of the valley, rose, jasmine, narcissus, orris, and a walloping amount of spice. For an old bottle this stuff is just fine. The top and middle notes are married well. I suppose this chypre floral could be labeled an "old lady" perfume, as it was released in the 50's.

This scent is bright red lips, black leather pumps, black sheep's wool coat with a leopard-print collar, and most definitely short, black gloves with a thick, black top-handled bag. It's a romantic-comedy from the early 1960's.

Flambeau is actually a Faberge I had never heard of or seen before. I had no expectations. No one note really stands out prominently. The base becomes more sultry as I detect vetiver and oakmoss. There is a blend of subtle amber, sandalwood, and a touch of non-sickly sweet vanilla settling in much later.

Like underglass, I find this to be a lovely scent for fall. On me it is heady and persistent.

update: I am getting a distinct tarragon note. This took me a while to identify, but would explain the buttery sweet yet savory effect I get from this gem.

Barbara Herman describes this as a "candied floral chypre" with an overall effect of burnt sugar, spice and creamy vanilla.

Ingredients include rose, jasmine, peach, muguet, narcissus, orris, vetiver, sandalwood, amber oak moss and orris.

Like all the Faberges I've tried, it just doesn't amount to much - pleasant, but so light as to be almost non-existent.

It is a much lighter version of Faberge's own Aphrodisia, warm, a bit nutty.

Not a bit fiery and not a bit worth seeking out.

A pretty and autumny chypre. It is warm and creamy rather than fiery and woody. My Mother gave me a little bottle of Canasta by Jacques Fath when I was young. Later on, Flambeau reminded me quite a bit of Canasta, which, by the way, was in itself, a very finely made and delicate chypre. But alas, both are discontinued and are very hard to find.
