A rose: inspirational or conspirative?
L'Inspiratrice is the first Divine fragrance that I get to know, thanks to Igraines generous filling. Thank you again!
This floral fragrance is different from many others of that type, but also diffrent from what I would have expected. An explicit fragrance pyramid is not named here, nevertheless, I think it has one!
The prelude of the first minutes is lavishly fruity, fresh and flowery. It has a richness that is astonishing. It has the fruitiness of red berries that are not mentioned above but nevertheless dominate the head note. The passage to the heart note is the bergamot with its citric green, slightly bitter fruitiness.
From the heart note onwards blossoms dominate the development, and most of all, the rose. It is a dark and noble strong-scented rose in its full splendour. It is accompnied by Ylang-Ylang which brings in a sweet softness. Not too much, so the fragrance does not drift away into the gourmand style, but just as much as to bear the beauty of the rose. The fragrance keeps this accord for a really long time.
It is not a fragrance for nice and neat little females. It is a fragrance for „La Donna“, for a vamp, for the woman in itself. I love it.
The sillage is perfect because the fragrance cloaks its wearer in luxuriant garments. The longevity is tremendous and consoderably prolongs the enjoyment of the base notes.
Slowly, the sweetness of the base note becomes less, the fragrance gets softer and more round, with a few green notes twinkling in between. It is simply the perfect fragrance for me and I' sure it will become part of my collection one day.
