This is a really beautiful fragrance and so similar in scent to the other fragrances (arpege and tresor) it was stored with, I had to check the official notes to the perfumes. Sure enough, they all share openings of bergamot and peach mixed with other florals (and now that I think about it, it's obviously missing Arpege's neroli and aldehydes and tresor's dark and syrupy rose.)

Tentation's opening is made unique by the vodka note which is a bit sharp not not overpowering. The opening fades quickly into the middle notes: lots of florals, (tea roses, carnations, jasmine - a big bouquet of summer flowers) combined with pleasing and unexpected spice notes of clove and cinnamon.

The base is dark, warm and resinous - a little sticky. There's a bit of a honey/vanilla scent - which is strange because it's not listed as a note. This is a mature evening scent. Beautiful, although I don't think it would be amoung my usual choices.

This is my favourite fragrance in the world. It has a warm spiciness and a soft mellow depth to it. To me it smells like a perfumification (as opposed to personification) of Christmas. There really isn't anything that can really come close to the scent of this although I have searched everywhere because it's been discontinued. If anyone else does know of something, I'd love to know.
