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).+2
