I have just tried a sample of Niki de Saint Phalle and was immediately
struck by it's resemblance to Ivoire (one of my favourite scents.)
They do share certain notes:-
Top notes: artemisia, mint, green notes, peach and bergamot;
middle notes: carnation, patchouli, orris root, jasmine, ylang-ylang, cedar, rose;
base notes: leather, sandalwood, amber, musk, oakmoss.
Ivoire has the bergamot, green notes, carnation, jasmine, orris, rose, cedar, sandalwood, oakmoss, amber and musk.
Both are dry, green chypres, but Ivoire is "soapier" than the NdSP I think. I actually think
I may prefer the NdSP over Ivoire and that is saying something!
What think you all? Has anyone got both scents to compare?

A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
