19 January 2014
Summary: I want to love this - I really do. Everyone I know raves about it; the reviews on this blog are almost uniformly enthusiastic. But the vanilla-violet accord has the wan period feel of one of those old round boxes of dusting powder, the kind that used to come with a sort of feather-boa of a powder...
Summary: Light floral melange relying on violet, orris and mimosa for depth This is a very nice, very light and cool confection created in 1906, that has a great deal more to do with the 19th century tradition of floral perfumes than the burgeoning 20th with its bold statements and blends.

Summary: Nach Profumos fantastischem Kommentar kann man nicht mehr viel zu dem absolutem Klassiker Après L'Ondee beitragen... Man riecht keine einzelnen, frischen, farbigen Blüten, sondern florale Noten, die sich zu einem zart pastelligen Gesamtakkord vermischen und ganz deutlich Puder, der von der Irisblüte...
