    Climat by Lancôme

    Climat is a classically constructed aldehyde and white flowers fragrance. But it is also a warm aldehyde that acts more like a quiet skin scent (a little is better than a lot), that is more intimate and less formal or obvious. A small dab of this just melts into the skin and has an unusual warmth - some sort of summery, light hay like accord. At first I thought this would be hard to wear because it didn't really work with the image of a classic French aldehydes - all black dresses, red lip and pearls. That was the mistake. This is a jeans and white shirt fragrance perfect for comfortable, friendly occasions, like small wine and cheese picnics in the country. I think it fits more in the Estee Lauder American natural-sporty aesthetic than the Lancome French formal aesthetic. This may not blow people away, but I don't think it intends to do that. It has a warmth and fragrance like skin has a warmth and fragrance. I recommend testing this unusual and well blended fragrance before buying because it is not like standard white flowers fragrances. This could also be unisex on the right man.
