Reviews of Bayadère

Now that I am attempting to be dignified in my middle age, Bayadère is the perfume that I turn to when I want to convey powerful and unapologetic femininity, as opposed to the monster vanilla bombs I wore in my younger days. On me, the vanilla/jasmine combo (similar to the original Dior Addict I preferred when I was younger, but with much less sillage and more florals) is given depth by the rose and carnation. The rose is a type that I associate with the very dignified old school perfumes that a beloved great aunt used to wear and it is given a bit of peppery/spicy zip by the carnation and clove: no powdery dry-down here.

If Bayadère were a color, it would be deep burgundy with flecks of gold (a bit like the Venetian flag). Indeed, this is a grand enough perfume that it could stand up to an occasion like a formal masquerade at Carnevale. I guess therein lies the one danger--this is a fragrance that could create a scenario where the scent wears the woman if she isn't up to projecting the necessary presence.

"Dancing in the Temple of Morphinic Dreams..."

This is how a modern version of Opium should be, if this iconic perfume had to be modernized at all costs! Unlike the current lame and bordering blasphemous excuse version of a classic, Bayadère pays a solemn and respectful tribute to the cornerstone that Opium once was, by having a heart and all the feelings and emotions that usually come with it. A brave and lonely soul it is, fighting courageously for its place in a sea of huge, sickening sweet waves that threaten to drown it for embarassing them, and proudly standing its ground against the hordes of boring gourmands that want to ostracize it to oblivion, for being such an outstanding, yet discordant note in the current cacophony of the one-step-away-from-diabetes one hit wonders that dominate the charts nowadays. A standing ovation for Enrico Bucella who had the guts to release such a perfume during the candy-laden second decade of the 21st century, and what's more, at a price that does not defy reason...
