    Mauboussin by Mauboussin

    Mauboussin is a rich, sweet Oriental based on creamy peach, bolstered by deep vanilla and patchouli. Imagine a bowl holding an overripe peach--soft, dark orange, bursting at the skin and falling off the pit. Pour on top of it rich cream, add a lot of pure vanilla, and a good deal of sugar. But wait, before it becomes edible, imagine the addition of a well-balanced dose of patchouli, as if the bowl, itself, were wooden. That is Maouboussin. It is like Coco, but less clear and golden, more opaque and creamy. Instead of clove, the sweetness comes from vanilla. Instead of a tree-ripened peach, the fruit is windfall on the ground, ready for winemaking. And when the peach finally fades away, a beautiful, sweet, patchouli-scented vanilla carries on for many hours. I'm a sucker for peach, and this one is just right for me.
