    Amaranthine by Penhaligon's

    This strikes me as another interpretation of their Zizonia, a scent from the 1930s. Amarinthe is a sensual, warm scent with the intoxicating suggestion of a warm body oils mixed within. The green tea, jasmine, and musk are all evident at first splash - I was reminded of Caswell Massey's Casma - vanilla, rose, sandalwood then mix with these initial notes and bring about that warm accord.

    In the drydown I am reminded of the effect of sweetened cedarwood, although that is not listed as an ingredient. A more complex version of Zizonia and a better buy than the older scent, in my opinion

    Strictly speaking, this is a fougere - warm, round and comforting.
