From the box in my wardrobe...

Another wardrobe selection...and my favorite candied floral bomb. Fracas. For those of you unfamiliar with it: The notes are bergamot, mandarin, hyacinth, tuberose, gardenia, jasmine, lily of the valley, jonquil, violet, neroli, rose, orange blossom, iris, musk, vetiver, cedar and sandalwood.
I originally purchased this out of curiosity (both this and Boudoir) because a bizarre mentor of mine said they were her favorites. The first sniff is odd, like a cough syrup weird smell. Some people truly detest Fracas. And I can see that. Truth be told, I had to force myself to wear it for a few months (who knows why, but I perservered). But now, I am completely entranced by the stuff, especially the dry down. Fracas defines tuberose for me, and try though I might, I don't get the same warm fuzzy from Carnal Flower as I do from this one. To me Fracas is the original niche classic. [/]
