Tamango fragrance notes

Reviews of Tamango

An aldehydic floral done with refinement and discretion: it’s softly elegant and demurely classic. Though aldehydes are used, they are used discretely… gaudiness is not allowed. Except for the aldehydes, I don’t really determine a separate opening… The fragrances seems to open with its heart notes. I can’t separate out the individual florals in the mixed bouquet except for the orchid and jasmine, but it is well done and the floral presentation in the whole fragrance come across as soft, warm, captivating, and even a trifle exotic because of the orchid note. The sandalwood and oakmoss provide a quite typically ‘70s base to Tamago.

I’m surprised that there isn’t more interest in this fragrance. It has beautiful floral accords that are presented with subtlety even with the aldehydes. It has a soft, but present sillage and very good longevity. It reminds me of a softer, mellower version of some of the great Chanels.

This is an oldie and a goodie and one that lovers of floral aldehydes such as Rive Gauche, Arpege, No 5, and Caleche might well enjoy. This is actually quite lovely: the formula hasn't changed over the years as far as I can tell. Elegant and yet easy to wear, a softer aldehyde with a lovely touch of oakmoss in the base.

Top Notes: Aldehydes, hyacinth, iris, wild orchid.
Heart Notes: Rose, lily of the valley, jasmine.
Base Notes: Sandalwood, oakmoss, vetiver, musk.
