    Weird -- I was just thinking that the dry-down of Malle's Une Rose blends wonderfully well with something roasted or braised.

    I never got the berry note in Angel until I baked a blueberry cobbler. The vanilla, blueberries and caramelized sugar reminded me so much of Angel that I broke out the bottle and started wearing it again with a new appreciation.

    (GREAT article - many thanks! :bounce: Nice to have ones own special favorites - um - "validated"!!!)

    So, you're saying a rosy (?) drydown (haven't experienced Une Rose - oh God! there goes my budget again!) with meat roasted? Or veggies - or kind of a BBQ smell?

    I'm getting hungry!!

    Wine dreggs and truffle accords according to Malle, moving from a floral to more of a skin scent after a few hours. It smells good enough to eat.
