I only have a small sample of Douce Amere, but that is enough for me to say that this is a scent I would swim oceans to procure.
It is highly addictive and totally delicious - if only it weren't so expensive!
I love the combination of the anise and wormwood, softened by the flowers and chocolate notes - right up my street. Bittter-sweet is where it's at.
This and Le Parfum De Therese are the nearest I have come to my Holy Grail and I have sniffed thousands of scents in that quest, believe me.
