Not a diva, wonderfully spicy.
"Basile Femme has a lot. But nothing from a diva. But much of a versatile, outstanding character actress.
She can embody the role of a snobbish nobleman, as well as that of a desperate homeless person.
And she can always put herself anywhere, so it's not ONLY a role.
Sometimes she needs "spicy words" to "stand her ground" and stand up to someone else. Then, another time, she masters a flowery-full-bodied "flute" so well that even the most critical and evil-tempered counterparts "melt away" and "lie at her feet".
And above all, she is grounded and never takes off from her success, although she is fully aware of her ability.
She loves roses and stunning flowers as well as forest soil, moss and wood.
And she also does all the "rough" work herself, even if she gets her hands dirty. She has heart, mind and foresight, and would never just imitate.
If she's "playing" something, she IS. Unique, independent and there is no duplette.....

Warm and spicy with depth
This is my impression of the EDP. I haven't tried the EDT so I can't comment on it. The EDP is a gorgeous dark amber in colour, and the scent is just as wonderous. I initially had samples and had to have a bottle.

Basile is a beautiful, authentic spicy fragrance with depth. Care was obviously taken in constructing this as the notes cascade harmoniously throughout the different stages. And how it sparkles! Rich, yet not heavy in any way. The citrus is juicy and introduces Basile with a gorgeous glow. The cinnamon and clove soon arise and add more depth. Faint menthol characteristics underline the top notes - apparently there is juniper and pine in Basile, though they are not listed here. The florals are subtle at this point.

The next stage is where the true beauty happens. Fresh woodiness soaks up the citrus/spice blend and creates the body of the fragrance. The florals have now emerged, lacing the woods and spice, they carry on and stay well into the drydown.

Deep, longlasting, excellent sillage but not overwhelming; it's very warm and inviting actually.

The smell of autumn and the changing tree colours set the perfect mood for wearing Basile. Simply gorgeous! I recommend for anyone who wants a citrus with depth and loves woods and spice.

Son of the rich 80es, it is an opulent and ladylike scent very classy and with a good sillage. Perfect in winter wearing a fur or by night
