Good morning everyone!
Glorious day, perfectly suited to the cloud of glorious vintage-80s Oscar de la Renta
I'm currently engulfed in. I've always thought of this as L'Heure Bleue
's younger, flirtier and much more cheerful sister.
Y'all have a great day!

I thought this might catch your attention - I know you like your Mauboussin. I hadn't heard of Mauboussin Pour Elle
, but I saw a display when we were in Australia and I was quite drawn to the bottle. I bought it after a very cursory sniff ...as close as I like to come to a blind buy, but I wanted a fragrant souvenir (and I wasn't impressed by Tommi Sooni, lol.) But it's hot in Melbourne in January, and since it's a semi-gourmand, I think it's much better suited to cooler weather, so I didn't give it a full wearing ...not until last night, actually. Anyway, MpE is not at all like Fancy
...to my nose, this fruity-floral is poised somewhere between Miss Dior Chérie
. The caramel note reminds me of MDC - it's buttery and creamy rather than candy-like. I'm not sure what's giving me the Euphoria message...red berries? But the most intriguing note is definitely the rhubarb
- I'd like to smell this more in perfumery. Patchouli isn't in any lists of notes I've seen, but I sense something herbal giving this very well-blended and smooth composition texture. It's more interesting and elegant than MDC, and more refined than Euphoria, more nuanced, but I sure wish it had Euphoria's staying power. It's frustratingly short-lived, but so very nice while it lasts - it garnered two compliments last night! I don't get the musk you mention, but that doesn't mean it's not there. The floral notes aren't aggressive, but there's definitely a jasmine and orange blossom presence. I really need to get to know it more, but I should put it away until the weather starts cooling off again. (I'll be in Milw. for a few days in the next several weeks, and that's where my decanting supplies are so I'll be happy to send you some!)kalli
- haha! You got me, too!
Safe and happy travels, Larimar
- have a great time!
