Zero is the new two ...
I love Jasmine! I love it in all of its incarnations, from the watery aqua kind all the way through to the heavily indolic variety! Caron's Lady Caron is one that falls in the middle of that scale … a very pretty but predictable little Jasmine frag.
In actual fact, this Caron offering reminds me somewhat of one of my favorite white florals of all time … Carolina Herrera's eponymous first fragrance … albeit completely 'de-bitchified' and softened to near extinction by comparison. With that said, it's still a very pretty perfume and would probably do well for those who say they cannot wear 'heavy' white florals.
The Jasmine here is immediately prevalent on my skin, but there must only be the smallest amount of Neroli present … my nose doesn't detect it at all. What is lovely about this fragrance is that a powdery Sandalwood note appears early on … giving the white florals (Jasmine, Magnolia and Tuberose) a lovely buoyancy throughout the relative short life span of this composition. The Peach here is problematic for me … it tends to be a little overwhelming through the midsection. Of Oakmoss I can find very little trace … perhaps due to restrictions? Sillage here is unremarkable … this EDP behaves more like an EDT to my mind, but there it is!
All in all Lady Caron is a very likable fragrance, but it seems to be a white floral put on a starvation diet … then again, zero is the new two ;o) …
