Flamenco Neroli opens with sharp citrus bergamot with a touch of underlying bitter orange before quickly transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart an extremely life-like slightly green bitter orange neroli takes the fore, with moderately sharp honeyed jasmine support. During the late dry-down the jasmine vacates, as remnants of the neroli now support natural smelling cedar wood through the finish. Projection is very good and longevity outstanding at well over 15 hours on skin.

I remember several years ago reviewing a trio of perfumes (the Ephemera line by Unsound) where the idea was to have the perfumer compose scents that were inspired by pieces of (what I guess some would call) music. The perfumes created were largely awful, just as the techno music that inspired them to my personal tastes. I remember remarking in a review of one of the torturous trio that the scents based on sound concept was definitely up my alley, but I would have strongly preferred perfumes composed in tandem with classical music. Well, fast forward a few years later, and we come to the L'Orchestre house that does just that. This review is of the first perfume of the house I have tried called Flamenco Neroli based on music found at https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=4AlUysPyUes&list=RDAMVM4AlUysPyUes performed by classical guitarist Mathias Berchadsky.

As soon as I sprayed Flamenco Neroli on skin I knew this one was something pretty special. The composition is relatively minimalist, and for the most part it is a linear neroli soliflore. Neroli soliflores are hardly anything new, but by adding in some sharp supporting jasmine to the mix, coupled with the use of some superb quality neroli makes for an exceptional heart accord. The linear development is very slow and subtle to the point that by the time the composition reaches the late dry-down many, many hours later, the fine cedar that emerges just seems to meld with the now supporting neroli perfectly. As for the perfume matching the music, I guess I am not imaginative enough to make the connection, but I *can* say the minimalist, classically structured perfume, and the equally stellar minimalist classical guitar companion piece are both spectacular. The bottom line is the 140 Euros per 100ml bottle Flamenco Neroli is a fabulous "excellent" to "outstanding" 4 to 4.5 stars out of 5 rated neroli soliflore that makes this writer eager to sniff more from the house while listening to more great related classical music pieces in the process... Sound Scents indeed!
