Cabotine fragrance notes

Reviews of Cabotine

Syrupy floral with a ginger note and a rather brutal piquant overtone.

Cabotine wasn't much good, even in its original form, so how it can have survived to this day when other perfectly decent things have gone is a mystery, one that can only be explained by the "pile 'em high and sell 'em cheap" philosophy of art.

Initially there is a floral blast with a big dose of something ozonic/fresh. Like a big steel spiny ball of fresh. It hurts for the first hour.
Relegating this to the downstairs washroom.

Green at first, then flowery. Loads of tuberose and carnation. Slight wood and animalic vibe on the bottom. It is bright, crisp, and lovely for spring.

Cabotine opens like tuberoses grown from earth. Sweet flowers accompanied by earthiness and greenness. Then it evolves into a scent very similar to Dove soap if my memory recalls well. Soapy at first, then it mellows and becomes less sharp. After about 3 hours, jasmine becomes prominent among all the floral notes but not overpowering. It then continues the ode to flowers for another 7 hours.

Cabotine is like a garden. It doesn't punch into face like a bouquet of various flowers. The flowers shows themsevles one after another along the path of the evolution of the fragrance while still in harmony. I can't pick any green or woody notes distinctively, but I can certainly feel their efforts balancing the whole fragrance. The sillage is quite good, but it doesn't smell heavy, more like flowers brought by the wind, floating in the air. The longevity is between 10 and 12 hours.

A wonderful fragrance for spring!

On me, it smells like Poison Tendre by Dior. Love it!

Evil in a bottle. The notes look non-threatening, but don't be fooled. It's a trap. It's like an icepick in the eye followed by slow poisoning.
