Helpful Review 3
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.
