Hi girls. Crikey, I don't believe it! I am twins with Bonsai! Of all the choices available we have both chosen this one, and I thought that it was quite a fun and cheeky choice, so I had my reasons all ready. Here they are;
My choice for the Arabian synch is Traversee du Bosphore by L'Artisan Parfumer. Now, come on, I know that the Bosphorus is not in Arabia, it runs through Istanbul. But I can justify it! Here goes;
1) Turkey and Arabia have close historical and trade links
2) This fragrance somehow reminds me of The tales of Scheherezade and One Thousand and One Arabian nights, my favourite chilhood book, AND
3) One of my favourite Basenoters loves this fragrance and he lives in Arabia in real life.
Yipee! High five!
Traversee du Bosphore is a beautiful comination of Iris, Sweet Almond, Saffron, a suggestion of leather, and a rose and vanilla accord which suggests Turkish Delight. Very romantic, very exotic, very Arabian.....sigh.
