    L'Âme soeur by Divine

    Aldehydic veils cloak the start of this light-as-cologne creation; there’s something fresh, metallic and sharp in the mix, like violet leaves. The aldehydes soon subside into wispy powders, with a nice ‘wide open’ sweetness (possibly gifted by the coumarin-heavy liatrix?) balancing the sharper aspects. The main event, however, is a fruity, pretty watered down, raspberry rose. Has a classic French perfume feel what with the aldehydic haziness (shorthand for ‘sophistication’ for the French it would seem) and generally abstracted air, but this also drags it into the ‘nice but nondescript’ category for me. The overall feel has a nodding acquaintance with Chanel No 5 and Baghari, but without the dynamism of those fragrances. Long lasting. Also exists in an extrait version which I haven’t tried.
