In the beginning it's all Lilac, Carnation and Rose for me. Then, in the dry down, the more anilmalic notes start to emerge. Not a big fan of florals, it's the fact that the florals have that past-their-prime feel with animalic undertones that add the drama that saves it for me. I can imagine that this must have been as unusual as Serge Lutens' Tubereuse Crimminelle when it came out in the 1920's. This is definitely rich, heavily floral, and of its time, but I love to wear this in the first warm days of spring as I trim the Jasmine in my yard. Intoxicating!
