This is certainly a jewel of a scent.
Soft, delicate and sublime, B by Boucheron is million times better than 95% of what is out there today. It is not the most unique scent in the world, but it is the best floral that I have come across for a long time (among the new creations.)
It has a tender voice that surrounds its wearer with a soft blend of woods and flowers as rose, orange blossom and osmanthus. Boucheron says that one of the magical ingredients is pink peppercorn, which I assume is what creates the rich spiciness of the blend. Staying luminous and floral throughout, as time passes, the wood-sy base of sandalwood, cedar and a hint of patchouli comes to play and adds an earthy feel to the progression. There is also a delicate dash of apricot in it, to increase the seducing femininity.
I like the fact the B is soft yet spicy, floral yet wood-sy, luminous yet Earthy all at the same time. It is just so precious. I wonder how it would work on my skin, yet there is nothing unpleasant about this frag (other than its rather high price) and even though it is not groundbreaking, it is most certainly a spellbinding creation: one that is worthy of Boucheron's great name and stance in the international luxury industry.
B is lovely.
