    Mandarine Mandarin by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    It reminds me a cheerful cousin of Malle´s Noir epices without the rose and the overdose of cloves. In fact ,It symbolizes to me what Noir epices should have been and wasn't as a result of that cloying rose-clove-orange combo.
    the spicy orange always stays on the top like a cheerful veil and the darker side stays in a discreet background.
    It has a sort of burning caramel (like brown sugar) that blends perfectly with the bitter orange tones and carry it to more profound and intriguing paths.
    very special indeed!
