Talky, a bit milky-soapy, a touch dissonant, slightly fat-buttery and finally rosey. This fragrance is changeful and complex, smelling like innocence and cleanliness. The key notes are lavender, rose-mimose, something "corporeal" (a remote milky-animal note that reproduces the skin's scent of the newborn children) and powdery tonka. The first, slightly angular, blast is herbal, hesperidic, a bit damp but since the beginning powdery. The powder is soon notable (after a short while) and starts to become delicately floral and ethereal (due to a wonderful gentle mimosa). Very evocative, almost ancestral. Hints of tobacco paint the powder while a milky mimosa is accessorial to the general "baby kind" soapiness. The dry down is a bit opaque and greasy (with a whisper of salt), slightly cosmetic and floral in the most delicate way. A romantic dive in the remote childwood.
