Maybe I should have kept my trap shut yesterday about dry weather
, it's snowing like crazy here at the moment.
My sample arrived today (thank you
), and SotE is Ormonde Jayne Tsarina. Notes include - Mandarin, Bergamot, Coriander, Cassis, Hedione, Freesia, Jasmine, Sambac, Iris, Suede, Sandalwood, Cedar, Vanilla Bean, Labdanum, Musk.
Mimi and I tried this briefly on our London sniffathon and I remain hugely impressed. Rich floral vanilla that never strays too far into gourmand territory, and appears to boast impressive sillage and tenacious longevity. I don't share the view that it is overtly feminine either, and will gladly use the 10ml or so I now have. Full bottle ? - can't justify £250+ but the SA we were speaking with seemed under the distinct impression that a cheaper 50ml version is likely to follow in the not too distant future. Consider me interested. Now, do I save the rest for wearing, or warm it up and drink it. Delicious
