This is a lovely tropical fragrance that always retains its creaminess and never becomes sharp or indolic. The notes are Ylang ylang, jasmine, iris and vanilla.
This has become my favorite amber fragrance and I've tried a lot of them. It is perfectly balanced and sensuous and delicious and perfectly blended. I would call it linear, except that there is a honey note that weaves its way throughout the fragrance- I imagine it as a golden thread against a darker background. It is a compliment getter and I love to wear it!
I love Bal de Roses. It is always a happy, lighthearted fragrance- I really feel as if the roses are dancing and carefree when I wear it. And it lasts very well- I can still smell it the next morning!
