Perfume Reviews

Negative Reviews of Arôme 3 by D'Orsay

I think this scent is all about sharpness masquerading as "freshness". It opens with a rather harsh spice note, maybe the clove, and soapy/powdery aldehydes adding to the harshness - I get lots of aldehydes although they aren't listed - on a nondescript, stale base. I can't really make out any other notes and the whole concoction seems very fleeting, unless I quickly grow anosmic to it, which to be honest is a relief. I love lots of old perfumes but this one, to me, feels "dated" in the wrong way.
