What drew me to this fragrance was the concept of two white flowers with very different associations being paired together as equals: the bridal, even virginal orange blossom and the sultry night flower, tuberose. On first applying un parfum d'Alleurs et Fleurs the orange blossom jumps out with a very natural, high-pitched sweetness that registered at the back of my throat. I could actually taste it. This sweet floral note is balanced with the leafy green note mentioned by another reviewer. As the fragrance dries down the volatile orange blossom transitions to tuberose and the musky basenote appears. I'm a fan of many fragrances that fall into the "orange-tuberose" category, such as Carolina Herrera, Fracas and Delicious. This is a different and unique take on that category, much lighter and subtler, as is befitting something from "The Different Company". In this pairing, I'd say the orange blossom gets top billing, while in the others tuberose is the predominate note.
