This was another surprise sample sent to me by a kind fellow perfumista. This is unmistakably the child of classic French perfumery. It shares its heritage with earlier Diors, characterized by quality ingredients and sophisticated style. This is one of those perfumes that makes an impression. It's on the dry side of floral, with perhaps the iris softening the impact of both ylang and tuberose.
The tuberose is the dominant note, however, it is tempered with other notes that save it from being a sillage monster. Tuberose can be overwhelming to wear, especially in very warm weather. New Look projects, but not loudly. I have had it on for about an hour and it is still very detectable, though softly so. I spritzed a very tiny bit onto the back of my hand, so a proper spray from a full bottle would no doubt not need refreshing during a day's wearing.
Overall, a sophisticated, memorable perfume for someone who wants something distinctive, with style though not sweet or too young. The woman who will wear this is confident, experienced, with an understated style of her own. If that is you, and you are looking for something that is individual, stylish and smells 'expensive' then do try it.
Unfortunately for me, white flowers have never been my thing. I can admire the craft in this one, though it doesn't tug at my heartstrings.
