    Default Essential Parfums - 5 fragrances

    Has anyone smelled this line - I bumped into it when I was browsing through Luckyscent's website this morning?

    A Parisian brand, they have hired some perfumers we're all familiar with. They've done no advertising. The bottles seem very affordable: $75 for 100 ml and $20 for a 10 ml travel spray.

    One that stands out is Orange x Santal - I love both of those notes and this seems to bring together the smell of a real fresh orange with Australian sandalwood and some other aromatic / woody notes.

    The Discovery Set is tempting ($20). But I would love to hear from others about their experience with the line...

    I happen to own the entire line. Got them from Luckyscent about a month ago when they first launched. Very reasonably priced for the amount you get. Mon Vetiver is my favorite, but Orange X Santal is also very nice with a nice spicy aromatic opening and very pleasant sandalwood dry down. Very well created IMO.

    I must admit the name Nice Bergamote made me giggle.
