My Beloved is old, a “cologne perfumee.” The curious will be disappointed at the flat muddled opening. A strong clear jasmine appears out of the wreckage dragging behind itself a slightly musty rose. The Beloved drydown, a floral woody animalic spice purr, is definitely related to La Nuit by Paco Rabanne but I prefer the latter with more bergamot and overall clarity. I’m giving this a high neutral for the great jasmine and the woody civet? base that you sometimes find in these inexpensive mature gals.
