This elegant parfum has charm to spare.
Rich oriental flames cooled by luscious, edible vanilla.
The firm touch of a willing partner, gently sweeps me away.
The notes are lost to history.
A best guess includes; Bergamot, jasmine, mandarine,
carnation, vetiver, labdanum, styrax, oppopanax, musk, vanilla.
Fragrantia lists them as; notes of bergamot, tangerine, cedar, sandalwood, thyme, mint, labdanum, moss and musk.
