Sample B (2)
Texture: noticeable oily residue, stays for a while on skin – should be an EdP
First impression: OMG – tinks mixed up the samples and sent me a vial of Cuir Beluga!
The fragrance hasn’t much of a development on my skin: what I smell from start to finish is a plush, voluptuous heliotrope-vanilla combination with vanilla intensifying as the scent dries down. Longevity is quite good - 4 hours or so.
However, there’s a herbal/spicy undercurrent right from the start that keeps Sample B from going into the girlie-girl or foody vanilla territory. Like in Cuir Beluga, I find myself longing for the leather, but getting none!
If there’s one in there, it sure is soft and supple like the finest suede.
CB wasn’t full bottle worthy for me at Guerlain’s prices, but Sample B is an excellent replacement! Gimme a big bottle, please!
I am at a complete loss of guesses here, since I do know only very few mass market perfumes sold in the US. Help!
