Whoa! This is my most disappointing purchase to date. And ironically, although I do occasionally buy "blind" based purely on reviews and / or lists of notes, I had actually sniffed this before I purchased. I own and love Songes and L'Heure Exquise, but these Goutals are a funny lot. The first time I tried Un Matin D'Orage in Selfridges I recoiled - I found it dry, cardboardy, opaque, unpleasantly bitter with no "body". The second time I tried it I was at Bergdorf Goodman's whilst on holiday in New York, and the lovely sales assistant suggested I try it as I like Songes and used to own Le Chevrefeuille. It smelled like the sweet floralcy of Le Jasmin combined with a muted version of the mouthwatering green of Ninfeo Mio, which I was very tempted by, but decided was just too sharp. I was quite excited and thought I could really enjoy Un Matin...
