    The opening is a peppery floral. It then includes cedar. All of it is done with high quality and balance. I suppose you could imagine this scent after a rainfall. This is another good wood scent that veers towards masculine. There's a lot of competition in regarding cedar so I would sample this one and Voyage D'Hermes. If you prefer floral then choose this one and if you prefer citrus choose Voyage.

    "Lost in the rain..."

    Like being in the place where a ten ton coriander loaded truck crashed into a pepper storehouse, under a showering rain. The first hour or so is like being on the spot when it happens. The rest (which is not much) is like visiting the place three months later. I love both pepper and coriander, but I think that nearly 150 euros for a fleeting whiff of them is way too much. On the other hand, it has one of the most beautiful and melodious names ever. After all, how many perfumes out there allow you to answer with what could be a lyrical poem's title, when asked what perfume are you wearing?

    It smells like fresh Angelica which is a herbal, clean and rich scent. Soon it dries down to wood, probably cedar. The fragrance has a wonderful smell which I really like. The problem is longetivity which is very short, the Angelica part lasts some minutes and the cedar part a couple of hours maximum on my skin. What a pity.

    Projection: discreet
    Longevity: may require re-applying once during the day
    My opinion:
    It has my respect for being very light and fresh, while avoiding being ordinary. Not an easy feat to achieve.
    It opens with an incredibly herbaceous, green and aromatic accord. It’s as if you just plucked a wild flower from rich black soil after a heavy downpour and crashed its stem with your grip that was too strong. Extremely fresh and juicy, slightly earthy and peppery.
    You walk back home in a moist breeze across the meadow, trampling some more of the flowers on your way. You sit down on your cedar wood porch enjoying the care-free day. It’s an early afternoon now and it’s been warm. The dampness after the rain is gone, but you can still smell the wild flower’s essence staining your bare feet – did I mention you didn't have your shoes on when you first took the stroll?
    Sophisticated, but very natural. Not really daring or especially intriguing, but still interesting and original. A good, safe, not-so-guilty pleasure. Wish it were a bit stronger and longer lasting.

    Genre: Citrus

    I’m no fan of this scent’s top notes: an unduly abrasive woody amber distracts from the pleasantly bitter, crisp, stemmy angelica accord. Things improve a great deal with time however, as a warm yet clean musk, a very gently vetiver, and the unmistakable herbaceous accent of artemisia (wormwood) emerge to round out and balance the woody amber.

    Once this transparent, dry, but oddly refreshing arrangement is established, Angeliques sous la Pluie presents one of the more cogent arguments in favor of Jean-Claude Elléna’s by now familiar minimalist style. So long as it lasts, Angeliques sous la Pluie offers all of this style’s watercolor luminosity, but with far more vitality than Elléna’s emaciated efforts for Hermès have managed.

    I say “so long as it lasts” because once the opening woody amber salvo settles down this is an understated fragrance, and I can barely detect it at all after an hour’s wear, no matter how much I apply. Olfactory habituation or transience I cannot tell you, but it’s a fleeting experience for me either way. Still, if you’re looking for a distinctive, but subtle clean-yet-warm skin scent, Angeliques sous la Pluie is worth investigating.

    Do not buy

    What the hell! That's my reaction, seriously...

    I've sampled this in the past, never really gave a proper sitting, so I did today. 4 spritz from Malle's carded sample @ 2145; its now 2232 and the smell is hardly there - its like wearing Gucci PH 2 and scrubbing your hand a few times and smelling - it's like an angel in a dream, gone in an instant - how on earth can anyone buy this for $200+? Perplexing and another Elena creation with abysmal longevity. An extremely faint cedar on putting my nose into my arm is all I get now.

    I love many Guerlain's, they are pretty bad on longevity, but ASLP from Elena for Malle was an all time low in this regard.

    I gave a 1/2 star bcoz I couldn't save the review w/o putting something there.

    Pros: none - in my opinion
    Cons: everything"
