About Portraits : The Ruthless Countess Dorothea

A most ferocious matriarch, known for her sharp mind, even sharper wit and a secret fondness for the company of young men and scones!

A fragrance that has impeccable manners. Refined and thoroughly reassuring. Both are misleading.

Revenge. It's even better than biscuits.

The opening bergamot note is not the usual bright and chirpy version, but more of the darker and mellowed side, albeit not without a certain attenuated freshness.

The drydown turns sweet, with a gingerbread impression being fattened up by an underlying cinnamon. Sweet but never cloying.

The base has a somewhat boozy aroma to it, but I cannot identify any convincing Sherry here. The softness brought into the game by the cashmeran adds depth and creaminess.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

A pleasant autumnal creation that is not without originality in its design but too synthetic to truly entice. 2.75/5

Sweet bergamot. Sweet and spicy ginger-cinnamon accord. It isn't sickly sweet, the top notes. It has a smooth vanilla ice cream smell, without the cream. I get a slight tea smell underneath - vague, but there. The vanilla later becomes "creamy" from the cashmeran. The spiciness seems to come and go.

Countess Dorothea is about as "ruthless" as a marshmallow, a cream puff. She is a sweet, old gal. Best use of cashmeran I've found so far, in all the perfumes I've tried.
