This has a bit of everything going on. Take a large pot and mix in dried fruits, rum, coconut, caramel, honey, etc. In fact anything you can lay your hands on. What do you get? An olfactory mess? Quite the contrary! This is warm, elegant and sophisticated. In fact, I think it's to die for and Balenciaga should resurrect this wonder. Immediately.

A Random Note Generator?
When I first wore TALISMAN, with no knowledge of the notes, I was wondering why I kept smelling wafts here of leather, there of honey, here again of caramel, there a touch of booziness, here--could it be coconut?... Yes, all of this and more: the list went on and on. Later it all became clear with the benefit of the note pyramid.

TALISMAN is a beautiful light oriental fragrance with abiding slightly sweet vanilla patchouli and a modicum of just about everything else under the sun thrown in to induce these delightful tiny wafts of variety. Rather than having a well-defined development trajectory, TALISMAN, on my skin, seems to operate like a random note generator. Imagine those ping-pong tossing machines that mix the numbered balls using air, only here the notes are popping up instead.

Yet the composition really is light and likeable and not at all overwhelming. I actually am a bit disappointed with the longevity, to be honest, but TALISMAN is appealing enough that I could see myself spraying it on over and over again just to be able to catch some more of these nice wafts. I'd like to try this creation at perfume strength, if available...

winter warmth
Talisman is exactly what I need to get me through some bitter cold winter days. It's bold without being obnoxious; the strong davana note is sensuous but doesn't cross over into being boozy or gourmand. (Reading the notes, you would think it smells like fruit soup or liqueur, but it doesn't.) Another Balenciaga masterpiece!(010510)
