    Exclamation Roxane ~ Sheer Ecstasy !

    I don't believe it !
    I found this perfume in a shop specialising in close outs, (mainly clothes) but with a few perfumes now and again. I also stumbled upon the classic Kobako from Bourjois in the same shop.
    The perfume Roxane is from the firm Arno Sorel.
    This is a beautiful perfume for women. I sprayed it twice on my forearms, not expecting much from a $20 no name. The rest of that day I was surrounded by this perfect balance of soft, very high class perfume which just got better and better. I couldn't believe it at first. I kept getting these beautiful whiffs and thought that can't be me ? I have tested it twice since and today I had to have it. I bought the last four boxes.
    The aura which surrounds you from this stuff is incredible....and the drydown is something else. I am not very good at dissecting notes in perfumes, but I can say that the fond of this perfume equals the very best of Guerlain and Caron. I have worn it five times now, so I am confident that I have got this one right.
    The stuff I have is an edt and lasts about four hours before transforming into the most beautiful skin scent imaginable.
    The thing that fascinates me about this is the sheer perfection of balance in projection, silliage, and fond/drydown ~ not to mention the high quality, (considering the price).
    My conclusion is that this is a better version of no.5, loaded with aldehydes and an wonderful additional silky violet note.
    I hope other members will track this one down, check it out ~ and report back.

    You don't have to put on the red light.
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??

    Sounds genuinely interesting. Since I am almost (in a good way though) almost pathologically addicted to almost any scent by Guerlain and Caron (almost irrespective of gender, release year etc.), I can only be more than grateful for having shared this info with us.

    Just to let you know ~ It's classed as a Hesperide, flowery, woody.
    Notes are
    Top ~ Aldehydic, Bergamot, Lemon, Neroli
    Heart ~ Lily of the Valley, Jasmine, Orris, Ylang Ylang
    Base ~ Sandalwood, Vanilla, Cedar, Amber, Musk

    I have been wearing this a lot lately. It's really gorgeous stuff. It's like an upgraded Chanel no 5 and the drydown really is ecstasy !!!

    Sounds great. Is Arno Sorel an Italian company/firm?
    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    Don't think this French company will make it to the mass market here in the States unless they can find a distributor.
