I adore Allure Sensuelle in parfum. I am not so keen on the EdP - the patchouli is too prominent. I would imagine that the parfum would make a very fine masculine. The comparison with Black Orchid is apt, however I find Black Orchid to be rather sweeter.
This is my basenotes review:
I didn't quite get Allure Sensuelle at first, it is a study in contrasts - cool, clean, savory and yet warm, woody and sweet at the same time. The patchouli, vanilla and frankincense base is both cozy and very sexy, overlaid by a jammy melon or apricot note. Suprisingly, the effect is not cloying or sweet, nor gourmand in the manner of Angel. The parfum is more subtle and refined than the EdP and the incense notes are more intense in the parfum. I find Allure Sensuelle both earthy and ethereal and the parfum has become a holy grail for me.
