Reviews of Possession

There is one review of Possession.
Possession is a rich floral (jasmine, ylang) with a spicy heart (carnation) and a warm, enveloping base (sandalwood, oakmoss, amber, vanilla).

It has an intriguing elusive note, reminiscent of the scent rising from a sugar syrup glaze on a pastry just emerging from the oven.

This is a quite subtle perfume for all its richness and depth and is very much of its time. In the dry down it has the lightest impression of Lanvin's Mon Peche.

The sort of scent your aunt used to wear when she went out to the opera with her furs wrapped around her. A man could pull this off with no negative effects in today's world. Equally at home on both men and women. Luckily, still available on Ebay and other sources.

First Edit: I have learned since posting the above, that Possession contains three unusual notes: elemi, gentian, cacao. This gives it its unique quality. Also my impression of it after wearing it for a time is that it resembles the fruity florals of the house of Krizia (K de Krizia; Krazy; Teatro ala Scala) a great deal.
