Mauboussin opens with an excellent almost too ripe fruit, a soft white floral, and a discreetly gourmand ambiance—nicely balanced with a high degree separation of notes and accords. It’s floral / fruity heart seems dominated by whiteness… I really don’t get a rose note. At its dry down, Mauboussin is a shape shifter oscillating between a sensitive vanilla / wood accord and a luscious ripe-plus fruity accord. Not exactly light or transparent, but not really heady except for the first minute or so, this beautifully feminine fragrance carries abundant substance with it and has a very nice longevity. Artistically crafted and endearing… be prepared to be noticed.
