I remain interested in solving this conundrum of a combination of rose and lavender that achieves the sublime Art Nouveau 'flight' of Hammam Bouquet without that perfume's powdery and thin drydown. And so, I am thinking of following the advice of le Mouchoir de Monsieur - scattered across these forums like misplaced stones from a road of gold! - and turning to the perfumes of Molinard. I have never tried anything by this house. I am now due to purchase my next year's supply of Eau du Coq; living as I do in a remote region, I am thinking of adding a few Molinards (which are all so inexpensive!) atop the rest, to save on shipping costs. My question to anyone who might be able to answer is: What do you think might be the result of layering: Molinard Musc, Molinard Les Senteurs Rose, and Molinard Lavande? I still haven't made up my mind to undertake this blindfolded experiment, and would appreciate any indication that it might be worthwhile.
