This opens with a pretty jasmine & tuberose accord familiar from many other white florals l've tried, but then... as it warms on the skin, it becomes ferociously animalic & dirty, thanks to a huge dose of indole from the frangipani. This is a real old-school floriental with a naughty side, in an eighties powerhouse style, with projection to match! From here it very slowly calms down, & sweetens slightly around four hours in, still just there after six hours.
l am mightily impressed with the audacity of this one. For a high street store to be selling something this far removed from the current mainstream takes a lot of confidence, & a heck of a load of cheek. l love them for it!
P.S. l'm sampling Good Girl Gone Bad by By Kilian today, & l can't help thinking; "Sikkim Girls is what Good Girl.. should have smelled like".
