Naughty Peppery Vanilla
A very special and unique spiced-up vanilla. The red pepper and carrot notes give it a naughty piquant feel with an oddly attractive touch of vegetal pungency.

Like the seductive Salome, who served as inspiration for this perfume, Seven Veils conveys a certain self-confident playfulness which is loaded with sex-appeal. It's not your typical sweet creamy vanilla. It's peppery, it's mischievous and quite lively. In fact to my nose there's more orchid in there than plain vanilla - it's more floral than dessert.

Seven Veils wears nicely in all seasons but the super hot summer days and it's a fabulous companion for everyday wear. It will perk you up and make your eyes sparkle.

Longevity is great - 12h+ on me - with pleasant, noticeable sillage all throughout.

The Dance of The Seven Veils
Seven Veils is emotive and captivating. The faction of notes creates a warm and momentous presence. An intimate hug of vanilla with a dash of herbs and spices. Ironically, this fragrance is inspired by "The Dance of The Seven Veils." Every note dances on the senses, leaving you euphoric, charmed and enthralled. There is an allure about Seven Veils that evokes romance, passion and sensuality.

Culinary Oriental of the Savory Variety
Byredo SEVEN VEILS offers a unique take on the oriental gourmand. In this case the composition opens very culinarily but rather than sweet, it is savory. I have no idea what causes the effect, but it looks to be the combination of the carrot and the pimento. The vanilla is very, very, low key--if detectable at all. I smell either clove or allspice in this mix, but it is not the usual sweet christmas cake presentation. Closer to the use of nutmeg to season spinach, it seems to me.

I do believe that SEVEN VEILS is original, but it smells like something that a creative vegan chef might whip up in her kitchen. Perhaps a carrot-tofu loaf? Bon appetit! I don't know, but this one is not for me. It's just too foody to wear as a perfume.

Some good news for those who like this creation: the longevity is excellent. This stuff is strong! In the far drydown, SEVEN VEILS evokes vague memories of Calvin Klein ETERNITY, so I'm guessing that it, too, packs a mighty punch of eugenol.

Baking supplies for oriental eroticism
Do you know that too? My Grandmother kept all her supplies for baking and cooking in one huge drawer.This drawer had a distinctive scent: There you could find vanilla beans, cinnamon, cloves, safron, allspice, flour and so on. In wintertimes this drawer was frequented quite often – we´d use cloves for making red cabbage, bay leaves for the sauerkraut and for baking a whole lot of spices and baking supplies – mostly the drawer was left open and the whole kitchen smelled spicy and kind of dusty thanks to the flour.
In my olfactorial memory this distinctive drawer-scent is closely linked to christmas time with my family.

Now, why do I tell you all this?
That´s because the perfume “Seven Veils” - the seven veils of seduction, epitome of oriental eroticism, symbol of sexuality smells like the drawer my grandmother kept her baking supplies in. It smells of comfort, of overindulgence but mostly it smells of cloves, star aniseeds and floury dust.
Some time later, after the spices have vanished partially, I can smell lush flowers – roses and orchids I recognize. Also there´s a warm and woody note behind these flowers and deep in the back of my nose I can taste the scent of carrotseeds. This typical soft, sweet-flowery scent like marzipan – if ever you smelled it you will always recognize it, even in small contents.

The headnotes of Byredos Seven Veils are too much for me - too much spices. Furthermore it reminds me of Coeur de Noisette which, in my opinion, is softer and more wearable.
