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.
