Reviews of Les Secrets de Sophie

Rich floral chypre
Ringing clear harmonies in
Sum golden ratio.

If loving so phi's
Golden relation chypre
B to sum the same

As lover to love
Then let me be A scoundrel
Loving her likewise.

The orangey opening with a liberal addition of a slightly oily but still quite fresh neroli underneath is pleasant, but on my skin comes across as less bright as the citric top notes might kead one to expect.

The drydown, on the other hand, swtiches to a truly floral affair, with orange blossom and a fairly rich ylang-ylang; the latter is not heavy and its inherent sweetness fairly restrained.

Sweetness is also the prominent feature of the base, and here it is very much due the vanilla that is added; a pleasant vanilla, sweet nut never really with full-on intensity and more discreet than cloying.

I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and an excellent ten hours of longevity on my skin.

This spring scent is not offering any surprises or bouts of creativity, but it is designed solidy, blended in a well-balanced fashion and reliably executed. The ingredients are of high quality, but are not very vivid and a touch lackluster in their appearance. In total is is a solid composition, but not an exciting one. 3.25/5.

This perfume is so ME...
Starts with my favorite notes...Neroli,bitter orange, bergamot,petite grain..all the elements of flower,jasmin and ylang-ylang such a classical heart,along with the velvet touch of violet leaf...then sweetness of tonka bean,vanilla with a bit of incense ...magical....this is the epitome of the word "Les Secrets"!!!
I get some aldehydes at the opening which are not listed...
if i have to compare with another one perfume..i would say No5 ..yes, this is an new version of No5 a more orange-y one!!!
