Thread: Frapin Caravelle Epicee.
Nope, traded it this week to Jenson.
Well, I ordered a sample of this too based on reviews and on the fact that I like cumin (or at least, the cumin in AMcQ Kingdom...)... I'll report as soon as I test it...
Strange that nobody has mention the body-odour note that`s lingering in the background..
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!
Yep it's cumin, and I looove cumin notes

It's hard to account for taste in fragrances! I totally agree with the advice to test it first!
I love Caravelle Epicee as a fragrance. It's in my top ten currently. It is hard for me to imagine anyone not liking this fragrance! Of all the spice fragrances I've tried this is my favorite - along with CdG Original edp - It's a tie between these two. Both are near perfection in the spice category, but in very different ways.
A year ago or so, there was a basenotes group love affair with Noir Epices by Frederic Malle. Another fragrance in this genre of scent. Everyone seemed to love it! I tried it, but it just didn't work for me. Almost an instant repelling scent for me. Had to scrub it off. A bitterness that I couldn't overcome, and I tried a couple of times. Just goes to show how individual taste in fragrances can vary.
By the way Ayala Moriel makes an outstanding spice fragrance blend that doesn't get talked about nearly enough - Epice Sauvage.
It`s been a while since i smell Caravelle Epicee for the first time, and i must admit.. -I`m actual starting to like it.. I think I`ve been inverted! It`s insane, but my opinion on this one has slowly change after several wearings! So much that i have order a 100ml bottle! I had decided to buy either Straight to heaven or Caravelle Epicee. I pick Caravelle because i think is more complex and original than STH.. I hope the longevity is good on this one!
