    Mitsouko by Guerlain

    A beautiful, striking, and almost unbearably complex fragrance. Mitsouko is a flawless classic that gives chypre's their good (and fitting) name. As it opens with its resinous, spicy, and citric opening, you can't help but feel luxurious. Its heart is possibly the most striking part of it, however. As the sharp (yet pleasant) top notes fade, an utterly fascinating chord of peach, iris, and a whole lot of other things that I cannot distinguish come into the light and resonate beauty. As it dries down, it turns to deep tones of oakmoss, vetiver, and musk to contrast the supple and rich heart. If you don't like it the first time, try it again, and again, and again...You'll fall in love with it soon enough-- I know I did.
