    Parfums DelRae Coup de Foudre (2010) Yann Vasnier Fresh Floral
    ------------------
    •Top Notes: Pink Peppercorns, Lemon, Pink Grapefruit •Middle Notes: Rose de Mai, Peony, Jasmine, Magnolia •Base Notes: Tonka Bean, Vetiver, Moss, Musk
    ------------------

    Starts of with a very pronounced centifolia rose note, sharpened by citrus and musk. It gives an immediate "lady's handbag" impression, and the first time I tried it on my skin, that put me off so much that I wrote it off as "not for me." After just five or ten minutes, however, that impression completely disappears, leaving a balanced, fresh and beautiful rose de mai floral perfume with fresh accents. That stage lasts a while, and then it slowly fades, keeping the citrus notes in play along with the rose and base notes, while the other florals take a back seat. Sillage is killer at first, becoming more moderate during the middle stage, and then this becomes a skin scent. Vasnier has done a great job of blending this. I only wish the middle stage lasted longer and it didn't drop off so steeply in sillage toward the end, but given the quality of this juice, that's not so bad. By that point, you'd want to be pretty close to your honey anyway, I guess...
    Yr good bud,
