    Default Van Cleef and Arpels Collection Extraordinaire (6 fragrances)

    Descriptions from Van Cleef and Arpels site.

    • Bois D'Iris Eau de Parfum

    "Precious essences of exotic wood are punctuated with a vibrant, salty note of ambergris, while a beautiful powdery iris lends soft elegance,reminiscent of Tuscany."


    • Orchidee Vanille Eau de Parfum

    "A floral, gourmand fragrance with asubtle blend of fruity notes (mandarin orange and litchi), combined with tasty bitter almond and dark chocolate, and accented with sensual Europeanflourishes of Bulgarian rose and violet notes. The vanilla pod is faceted with woody cedar and balsamic tonka bean and notes of transparent white musk."


    • Cologne Noire Eau de Parfum

    "Fresh spices like ginger, cardamom and pepper are blended with bracing citrus notes of bergamot, bitter orange and mandarin, putting a new twist on this one-of-a-kind cologne story. The base finishes with soft, comfortable woody notes."


    • Muguet Blanc Eau de Parfum

    "A green, joyous and incredibly delicate arrangement, graceful lily-of-the-valley is enhanced with exotic white peony, radiant neroli and uplifting white cedar."


    • Lys Carmin Eau de Parfum

    "Enhanced by a burst of spice frompink peppercorns, the sensual lily is paired with powdery ylang-ylang to unfurl its magic. A fusion of vanilla and sandalwood completes the spell."


    • Gardenia Petale Eau de Parfum

    "The modern composition opens with a unique accord of fresh, green and citrus notes, followed by floral touches of delicate lily-of-the-valley and exotic jasmine and finishing with the elegant, femininity of gardenia flowers in full bloom at dawn."

    My favorite is Cologne Noire. Mark Buxton is a genius, I think.
