I bought a mini of this and promptly forgot about, leaving it to collect dust on the shelf. I recently gave it a skin test then full wear and regret the time I wasted without appreciating it. Grain de Soleil starts of as a floral/amber, warm and comfortable. To compare it to another fragrance - it's a more floral, toned down version of Ambre Narguille. I recently sprayed it on my arm before bed and the next morning it was still going strong, with a tasty vanilla/amber base with what feels like a hint of spice to keep it interesting. I don't have much experience with Fragonard but this is one I wouldn't mind a FB of on my shelf.
Agree with RedRazz ... This is one of my year round comfort scents. It starts with a bright powdery "traditional" floral accord with rose, jasmine & iris. Once that burns off - about 30 min or so - it becomes a wonderful, cuddly warm vanilla cinnamon comfort scen, not too sweett. Very crowd friendly as well. I always get compliments when I wear it. The lasting power of the dry down is very good. A nice less expensive alternative for anyone who also like Estee Lauder Private Collection Amber Ylang-Ylang,which has a very similar dry down, but not as light or cinnamony.
Grain de Soleil is a delicious vanilla-based comfort scent, gently warmed with a light sprinkling of cinnamon and amber, and the barest hint of incense. These notes blend rapturously with a floral heart of rose, iris, and jasmine. Perfect for cool weather, though I find myself craving it in the summer too. While this is marketed as a woman's fragrance, I think it would be very sexy on a snuggle-bear type of man. Want compliments? Spray generously around your neck and shoulders, and go someplace you usually get hugged!
This is the closest thing I have to a signature scent. Last time I checked, it was available from Lucky Scent, and from the Fragonard website.
