    Felanilla 21 by Parfumerie Generale

    Custard in a plastic bowl, with someone irresistibly chic serving up the first spoonful.
    What a gorgeous iris this is, vegetal yet tinged with sweetness, smooth as silk and new plastic. Its bounded by perfectly judged vanilla dry as a husk, almost tobacco-like, a tad bitter and warm. The iris-vanilla heart accord is the main show here for me. Other aspects that count are a touch of hay for air and openness, and a tiny drop of amber to bed it down. Has an altogether effortless loveliness about it, let down somewhat by its refusal to rise much above ones skin.
    Over time the vanilla steals the dance with the amber amping up, so we are left with something in the Shalimar mould with shades of Tauerade. This late stage is less original, but still pleasant to wear.
