(It is reputed that write Oscar Wilde wore Malmaison.)
I didn't mean that I couldn't detect cloves in any of the previously mentioned scents, just not in most of them. Poivre qualifies, indeed.
Coup de Fouet is beautiful. I have recently discovered it just to find out that it's not sold anymore. Grrrrr...
Didn't know about the Malmaison - Oscar Wilde association, thank you.
