Chypre? "Spicy?" This really must be a fragrance highly dependant on chemistry.

It's about 11am on a hot, humid day somewhere in India. There is a beautiful woman going about her business. She has already bathed that morning and is dressed in a traditional sari so her skin is clean but she's already beginning to perspire lightly from the heat. She did a deep oiling of her hair with ghee(clarified butter), put it into a long rope braid that reaches her hips, and has decorated it with some blossoms of Jasmine and Gardenia. This is *exactly* what Fracas smells like to me. ON me, it is not nearly as strong as so many comment on. Nothing is strong on me. But it is lovely, exotic, unique, and long lasting.
