The good smelling lady figure
Hello my sniffing fans :)
Welcome to another fragrance review from me. Today it's about "Pour Une Femme de Caron" by Caron, it is the EDP version of 2001. Immediately the sight of the bottle lets you already hope for a great, feminine fragrance. Also, looking at the bottle, you don't immediately have dirty thoughts like you do with the bottles of the Gaultier fragrances, for example. Because while the Gaultier fragrances, especially the countless Classique women's fragrances, clearly gropeable... uhh I meant of course haptic palpable breasts, the bottle of Caron has been designed more elegant.
But of course I also like this female figure very much... but... who knows me has already thought anyway that I could like this very much... :D

Anyway, by the elegant presentation, the expectations are of course a bit higher, so I hope that the fragrance also turned out really nice. The 2017 version, by the way, I unfortunately do not know, so I can not say whether the old version was better or not (but which was probably so, if you look at the average ratings of both fragrances here times so... bah, why do newer fragrances always have to do so badly??...).
Well well, let's get to the fragrance.

The fragrance:
I smell at the beginning of fresh fragrance notes such as lemon, which turns out but quickly rather than tangerine. After that, you can smell the roses out very well, which give off their floral and slightly acidic scent. In the background is incense and also oakmoss, which make the scent seem a bit more mature and give the impression that it's a 90s scent. There's some neroli to go with it. After a short while the scent becomes sweeter, as you can now also smell the musk. Mandarin or the citrus notes are already gone, the neroli smells a little stronger, as well as the resins.
Later, the fragrance is again softer and more beautiful by the appearance of another resin, namely benzoin, and thus even seems a little "brighter".
In the base, the fragrance remains resinously sweet and smells predominantly of musk and especially just after the resins. Oak moss is now significantly lower and also the floral fragrance notes such as the rose has almost completely disappeared. A very nice fragrance!

The sillage and the durability:
The sillage is okay. But for the fact that he makes a heavier impression, the sillage has turned out but rather mediocre. The durability, on the other hand, has turned out pretty good, as the fragrance lasts for eight to ten hours.

The flacon:
The bottle is shaped like a lady's figure, but was designed to be more elegant than, say, Gaultier's lady figure bottles. Around the hip of the lady... er, the flacon, a silk bow was attached. The whole figure stands on a pedestal on which the name of the fragrance can be seen. This pedestal is also the lid of the bottle, as you can remove it to reveal the spray head. So the bottle is upside down when you are not using it. I think the flacon is just outstanding.

Conclusion:
Hmm, well I must say that my high expectations were not disappointed. The fragrance smells just wonderful, very pleasant and also very feminine. He is already sexy, but even more he comes across elegant. A great fragrance for the evening, not necessarily to party, but otherwise for all other occasions when going out.

Autumnal seeming you could use the fragrance but also in the spring still good, because it does not seem so extremely heavy. Since I liked the fragrance very much, I would recommend all ladies to test him times, if you can get hold of him. Because the bad news is that the fragrance is no longer available, especially also since a few years ago the 2017 version was released, which unfortunately doesn't come in the great bottle anymore, but was bottled in more of an ordinary looking bottle. If I ever get to the new fragrance, then I'll let you know if the new one is also as great as this one, but as already written at the beginning, the 2017 version seems to be much worse, unfortunately... :(

Anyway, the fragrance here is great, elegant, very ladylike and yes, just beautiful! However, also a little too banal or let's say rather too used to, because you had such fragrances quite often under the nose, but well, so it is just, especially if you have already tested some fragrances. And because I liked it so much, I do without today times exceptionally to point out to you ladies that you could be even with elegant fragrances and dresses still quite beastly,... :DD

So then, have a nice evening, as always continue to take good care of you and until next time :)

Pleasant Muddle
Unlike the powerhouse Carons, notes seem to cancel each other out in this perfume. I have to really layer it on to smell much of anything at all. I can't really detect the oakmoss in the base, just sandalwood and musk. Rose in the heart is dominated by frankincense though it doesn't stand out enough to cause anyone to say: ah, what a beautiful incense perfume. The simple citrus/floral top is nice, not distinctive. What this fragrance presents is an agreeable muddle. It won't offend, but OTOH I doubt if a wearer would draw many compliments. As it dries, Frankincense dominates via a slight smokiness rather than beauty. I think I know why it's on sale. What I do like about this scent is that after about 15 minutes it evokes a distinct sense of nudity as if just stepping from a Turkish bath not wearing perfume, but having great smelling skin. It's the kind of intimate effect L'Artisan's Explosions of Emotions reaches for with more sexiness. When/where to wear it? Hard to say. It's too tame for a dalliance, not noticeable enough for a date. Hmmm. I know! If you're ever called before authorities and need to give an impression of utter adult female wholesomeness, spray on this.

Scent of a woman
Pour Une Femme de Caron immediately upon application strikes me as quite an unruly concoction. The first half hour or so actually makes me think of ELdO's Jasmin et Cigarette. The name, not the scent. It's almost as if the top notes consisted of two completely separate entities, one being a strange bubble-gummy floral on the verge of decay, the other a heavy dose of automobile exhaust.
Incompatible, immature, lacking cohesion and downright weird as it may seem, these clashing notes nonetheless possess an inexplicable allure, more than a mere hint of things to come, a promise that, once we look past the grim post-industrial era facade, beauty shall be revealed.
And revealed it is. From the sweet rose-infused incense in the heart to the ultra feminine musky drydown, Pour Une Femme is pure bliss. The florals are creamy and seamlessly blended into an opaque amalgam, the sandalwood and incense provide an exotic backdrop without ever so much as a step in the headshop direction. This soft hazy sleepy golden mezzo keeps on for hours before slipping effortlessly into a beautiful musky afterglow. Personally I grew quite wary of anything ending in Musk, given all those perfumes out there which promise a lot only to deliver a nose singeing laundry effect at the end of their party. Pour Une Femme is clearly not one of those. Its musk is "your skin but better" done to perfection, its texture reminiscent of sweet warm milk. .
I guess, it might be considered somewhat "dark", as all Caron generally are, but first and foremost, if applied cautiosly, it's comfortable, soft and grown up. Spraying on hair and clothes rather than skin, or better yet dabbing, renders the exhaust stage almost nonexistent.

Orange benzoin frankincense and musk. Very faint on me, in fact almost non-existant (about the strength of having washed with a nice soap).
