Fresh and bright opening thatís different from most of the other eaus Iíve tried: Itís the caraway seed that provides most of this uniqueness. I love the smell of caraway and wonder why it isnít used more often in perfumery. To my nose, the citrus of the beginning hovers in the background while the caraway / basil / mint take the center in an excellent, long lasting aromatic accord. This main accord is just plain charming in an endearingly old-fashioned way. Itís balanced to perfection. Toward the end of the aromatic dominance of the spices and herbs, the jasmine can be found softly filling in the background. The base that I get is a mellow moss and amber Ė quiet and comfortable and not very sweet, hardly any sillage, but it lasts for hours as a close-to-the skin scent: My favorite of the Guerlain eaus Ė maybe even of all of the eaus.
