    Les Nombres d'Or : Vanille by Mona di Orio

    On application I'm getting a blast of orange and cloves with woods quickly arriving behind it. After a while I start to notice tonka bean with vetiver underpinning it.

    It stays unsweetened for a good few hours and it's like your smelling the tonka bean directly but its giving you a slight hint of what is to come.

    In the basenotes the vanilla and a touch of ambre come to the forefront and it starts to get sweeter but not too much.

    This fragrance is complex and smells good but it is a unusual take on vanille. If you like your vanilla full on you may be underwhelmed and unsatisfied. Though if you find vanille to cloying and sickly then this is what you may be looking for.

    A good complex vanille fragrance that is restrained but still a delight too smell.
