This scent lives up to its inspiration: the fin-de-siecle nightlife of Paris, c. 1889, and the Moulin Rouge cabaret.
The ad copy states feathers and sweetness, and that is what I manage to get. I also get a "lipstick" note. The leather supplies the animalic note (anyone ever smell feathers or fur?) and the sweet plum opens up the composition with a very slightly spicy undertone.
The floral center of rose and iris, with the all-important note of absinthe (think Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec) provide a nice transition to the deeper notes. This has good longevity and sillage. I can even catch a whiff six hours after wearing.
This is surely a unisex scent, and can be comfortably worn by both men and women.
At $185 a bottle, this might sound steep, but the bottle is a generous 120 ml in the EDP.
