    Heliotrope by Etro

    Heliotrope is a captivating gourmand. This is another one of those scents that reaches into my brain and pulls out all kinds of childhood memories: Heliotrope smells the way my auntís kitchen used to smell back in the Ď50s ó almonds, vanilla, cherries, and lots of sugar ó if there was a little cinnamon thrown in, it would be a perfect match for the delectable odors of her gourmet pastry domicile. The main notes that I get from the fragrance are almond, vanilla, heliotrope, and some rose and cherry. It begins sweet and nutty; it continues sweet and floral with an occasional powder spasm; and it ends sweet, floral, and vanilla-y. It is sweet and floral and unisex. It has excellent projection and decent longevity. I find it totally delightful, and itís an excellent fragrance for the younger person.
