    Default Frangipanni Gloves: florals with leather and tobacco

    I love these three notes together: florals, tobacco and leather!

    As for frangipani (known by some as plumeria), this is my DH's favourite floral scent. It reminds him of the wonderful tropical vacations we've taken together.

    Anyone tried this? Any thoughts?

    Notes: African Stone Tincture, Ambrette (Musk) Seed , Araucaria Absolute Frangipani, Guiacwood, Ho Wood Jasmine Egypt, Leather Notes, Mimosa Neroli (French), Oleander , Orris Root, White Pepper, Zantoxylum

    I can't say I've tried this one personally, but I know Ayala Moriel has made some gorgeous florals.

    My favorite is a one-off, Tuberose Lei, which is much more like "tuberose smoke" or "tuberose incense". It's a deep, buttery tuberose seen through a veil incense smoke. Simple, but great.

    Gigi is also very good, a dense, sandalwoody floral, somewhat like Manoumalia without the aquatic note.

    Her creations are mostly quite soft - Razala and Immortelle L'Amour being delightful, oriental exceptions - but are very well-made.

    Thank you for the reply, Galamb. Tobacco and Tulle is something I must sample, and her other offerings sound wonderful.
