This is a review for the original parfum by Payot. This is classic French tuberose scent to my nose, very floral and heady, with sharp citrusy/fruity top notes and indolic white floral middle notes. Absolutely feminine, but for floral fans only. I hope to never be without a bottle.
I have a Payot vintage bottle of the stuff, and it is QUITE lovely. Fragrantica lists the notes as: top notes, mandarin orange, cassia, raspberry and grapefruit; middle notes are tuberose, jasmine, hiacynth, neroli, ylang-ylang and geranium; base notes are sandalwood, musk, vanilla, oakmoss and vetiver.
The most impressive thing about this scent is how seamlessly the notes are blended... it gives the impression of a soft, sweet wall of fruity floral wrapped around a warm and earthy base. This never goes cloying or too sweet on my skin and I am so happy that Brielle had a bottle on offer! It is what I would consider a gorgeous romantic feminine scent with tons of class.
recieve this in a sampler minis set sniffs like a childs cologne perhaps like tinkerbell cosmetics? /loves baby soft.
Have worn this since I was a girl. Still have one bottle left from Payot, it is intoxicating. Not a fragrance for everyone, but if you can wear it...it is amazing.
Very, very sweet and powdery and it is inexpensive. I have owned this one for several years and I seldom wear it due to its longevity. Sometimes want to wash it off during the day. It gets stronger and more cloying as the day moves along.
