I love Guerlain’s AA Ylang et Vanille; the langour and voluptuousness of the ylang coupled with the warming comfort of vanilla. Goutal’s Songes uses high quality absolutes of these two notes to bridge a heart of exquisitely creamy jasmine. The ylang has wonderful rubbery and banana facets. There are other tropical highlights of frangipane and tiare, but despite great richness and depth this perfume is not overbearing (of course, one needs to spray judiciously); it’s a reverie, a smile through a sigh, mood music for a lazy Sunday.
