About Portraits : Changing Constance

Sister to Lady Blanche, Constance is what one would call a very modern woman. Her fresh and spicy entrance hits an immediately intriguing (disobedient??) note.

The blend of cool cardamom and hot pimento is disconcerting to say the least, (even for a modern woman). Still possessing a mild affinity to her favourite childhood treat, Constance can always be found sucking on a butter salted caramel as she twirls her Turkish cigar, clad in perfectly tailored cashmere trousers. Constance oozes with an attitude of laissez-faire

Reviews of Portraits : Changing Constance

When I wear Changing Constance I have a yen for creme brulee with its sugary creamy notes of vanilla, pimento, butter and salted caramel. She comes in an artful decoupage box with a golden stag stopper, could there be musk in the bottle I think not, it's banned.
Resist urge for salt caramalized chocolate and wait for the dry down to develop of cardamon and tabacco to revisit drinking cardamon coffee and smoking hookah in souks, just tobacco you understand. But all I can think is rice pudding, creme brulee and cup cakes, this melange is too overpowering to let the pimento and cardamons notes breath.
It's a pudding kind of perfume, the perfumer would make a great pastry chef. Pass me the blow torch Constance

The opening notes are in the darker side, with back pepper and cardamom mixed with whiffs of spice. The drydown develops an impression of salted caramel that is done all right, but it lacks the vividness and intensity to entice, and thus misses that interplay between the two than makes this contrasting combination so interesting (Berthillon’s ice cream cones to mind!).

The base sports a tobacco note that is a bit too restrained to convince, and non-specific woodsy tones with a lashing of a nice tonka towards the end.

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

An interesting autumn scent with original ideas, but overall lacking vividness and a tad too generic. 2.75/5.
