A cloud of sweet – airy neroli muddled with the confectionary note of marshmallow. From this emerges the coffe-leather-tobacco thang which is supposed to be oh so bad baby. But the pervading sweetness gives it a flaccid, sickly aura. Like many Etat offerings, this too has radioactive longevity, the pump in its plastic heart refusing to give up the ghost. Like being stuck with someone who keeps repeating the one joke they know.
Baby powder. That is all I get from this - for 8 hours plus. Very sweet opening with the orange blossom and florals, but really just smells like baby powder forever on me.
In my opinion this is one of the most disappointing releases by the guys at ELDO. I can't say that this composition is completely unsuccessful but it's definitely way too sweet. Divin'Enfant opens with an interesting accord of coffee and orange blossoms that while it's pretty strident it still has some charme. It could do great on the A*Men / Angel / Lolita Lempicka axis if just it didn't suddendly evolve into a generic woody ambery drydown of very little interest. If you like overwhelming sweetness in your fragrance you could enjoy this, but let me tell you that you can have plenty of better options at half the price

Sickenly sweet top notes with leather and tobacco on the drydown. Does what it says on the tin (cute baby becomes frustrating tyrant), but can't say I'd ever want to wear it....
