A Powerhouse Woody Bergamot-Ylang 1985 Flashback
Oh My! Something seems so familiar about this fragrance, its an olfactory deja vu. This is a very feminine classic full-bodied woody floral reminiscent of the original Halston for women cologne and Carolina Herrera Era. Here a honeyed peach liquor meets orange blossom, sweet and strong, along with bergamot and a strong jasmine and tuberose and slapped me in the face. The initial wave is followed by ylang-ylang and a adult rated woody vanilla musk base. The sillage on this is well over 2 meters (+6 feet) and has triggered a series of allergy attacks throughout the whole household. This might be a good nightout on the town for dancing and such, it is very assertive in its white floral woodiness. I am sure this lingers on clothes for days. I am getting the thumbs down from DH, the dogs seem to be backing away slowly from my general area, but the male cat seems to be keenly interested in spending some quality time with my sample arm...not the reaction I had hoped for actually.
