    SOTE: In honor of floral Saturday, Quelques Fleurs Royale by Houbigant.



    If the Vera Wang for Men I wore earlier today was my least offensive frag, then this is my most offensive.

    It's not horribly animalic or anything, it's just STRONG. And kind of weird. Even with extremely light application, it's a scent that people can smell coming a mile away. A drop will perfume a whole room and it lasts forever.

    This is one of those fragrances where everything is blended so thoroughly that I really have issues pulling out notes.

    There's definitely bergamot and citrus in the opening, but the whole scent is dominated by an accord similar to Bulgari's Rose: rose + blackberry. It's the rest I just can't figure out. There's something buttery and a base I just can't place (some sort of moss? some sort of musk?)

    There's not much change, but the citruses fade after a while and the base comes out a bit more, but the whole experience comes down to roar of the Bulgarian rose mixed with the berries and the base.

    By tomorrow morning, I know from experience that a beautiful vanilla will have come out. That is actually my favorite stage of this frag.

    Overall, this isn't a scent I can wear often, but it does hold a place in my heart.

    Other members uneasy will remain.

    The name of human you cannot retain."
