Ile Flottante: Meringue Clouds Floating in Creme Anglaise with Caramel
This scent is an excellent way to have a lactose free desert without the associated 3000 calories. I always try to see the positives first. At first whiff, a very specific scent memory came to mind- Demeter's Sweet Cream and Dulce Leche scents layered together. Lait de Biscuit seems milky, creamy, sticky and I am surprised that it is a liquid and not a slow pouring toffee texture. The scent warms up in about 10 minutes to a less synthetic tooth-ache version of vanilla extract with burnt sugar notes. Indeed I agree that there is a slight buttery/butyric nuance to the base. I can not wear fragrances that are this sweet personally, but if you are in the realm of the sweet vanilla cloud scents such as Laurence Dumont's Tendre Madeleine and Vanilla Bourbon, or Lavanilla- Vanilla - you should give this a shot. Followed by a shot of insulin.

Bad Biscuit...
Lait de Biscuit opens with a slight caramel tinged sugary sweet syrupy vanilla. As the composition moves to its early heart the caramel deepens to a degree as the hyper-sweet vanilla continues to dominate, adding a speculoos sugary cookie-like accord to the mix. During the late dry-down the incredible sweetness finally fades leaving behind a slight powdery sheen from the remaining vanilla in the base with traces of a mild buttery accord left in support. Projection is below average and longevity average at 8-9 hours on skin.

Oh boy, yet another super-sugary vanilla gourmand concoction by Chaboud! I don't think there has been a fragrance line I have come across with so many variations of the same theme and most of them not very good, this one included. In the specific case of Lait de Biscuit, the ridiculously sweet sugary vanilla open is paired with the supporting aroma of speculoos biscuits (kind of a slightly buttery shortbread cookie). I really enjoy the aroma of speculoos when done right, and L'Anichambre released a composition that perfectly captures the best part of their aroma, tying with one other as my favorite gourmand... The simplistic and highly linear Lait de Biscuit unfortunately focuses far too much on the sweet side of things and less on the buttery shortbread goodness featured in the best speculoos biscuits and the composition accordingly fails. The bottom line is Lait de Biscuit is yet *another* sugary vanilla composition from Chaboud that should have been left in the tweaking stages for much needed improvement, earning a "below average" 2 to 2.5 stars out of 5 rating and an avoid recommendation. My advice to speculoos lovers is to seek out the near-perfect Speculoos by L'Antichambre instead of this inferior pretender.

Buttery biscuit in warm vanilla milk
True to its name, Lait de Biscuit opens with the wonderful scent of a butter biscuit soaked in milk that has been boiled with vanilla beans. So creamy and yummy!

Midway, it develops what appears to be a burnt quality, like that of burnt sugar, which is essentially caramel. It doesn't smell like charcoal though, and helps ensure that this isn't overly linear by giving the creamy biscuit a touch of sweetness and some smoke.

Apart from the appearance of a caramel-like note, there wasn't much development in this fragrance, but that's fine if all you're looking for is a gourmand that is positively delicious and delightful!

Projection was alright, not too strong, but noticeable. It started sitting close to the skin around the 5 hour mark.

A lightly toasted fine French biscuit
I had to try this straight after the Lait de vanille and it just made me smile. This belongs in the Demeter department because it is a truly faithful reproduction of a newly baked biscuit. A fine French patisserie shortbread though, no crude baking here. If this was the intent then the scent photograph is here for the telling. Very amusing as a good example of a perfumers skill. I like Sophies perfumer humour. Good for dieting.

As a perfume?.... each to their own. Cannot fault it though.

Opens with butter cookies, vanilla and caramel that become a darker burnt sugar on the drydown. A feast for gourmands but close to the skin.+1
