No words to convey it's magic and beauty
This review is from an old vintage bottle of EDP, probably from the late 1960s, but I'm not completely sure on the age.

In the opening rose is dominant with a strong almost unpleasant herbal note that is equally as strong (the aloe maybe?) I also get some geranium and mint. It's not a fresh and bright mint but a mint that's bruised and old, forgotten in the back of the refrigerator. This opening did not work for me.

As the scent warms up the aloe vera becomes more distinct while, thankfully, the geranium and minty funk fades. The rose is incredible lovely, as Caron roses usually are. It does not have the heavenly creaminess of N'Aimiez Que Moi or Acociosa, but there is a really great powdery quality that I adore almost as much. I love this scent now that the opening has faded. The artistry of the composition (like all the vintage Carons) completely blows me away.

The dry down has less geranium and aloe vera and even more of the powdery rose that just engulfs me. It is divine. The geranium has been replaced by a smokiness against the skin. I can't find a better way to describe it and I have no idea what is giving me this smoky feel but it is insanely beautiful.

This scent lasted forever and has a rather large projection. It's so beautiful at times I am almost overcome by it all. There are just not words to convey the magic of this.
