Elegant Light Floriental
Linda Allard by Ellen Tracy

I usually do not like orientals, or most any heavy scent, but I like this. It’s a very light, sophisticated oriental. Opens with a blast of fresh, dry, roses and a dash of fruity yellow peach. Develops into a spicy brocade of carnation with a weighty dose of tonka beans. A bit of jasmine sweetness well woven into a delicate touch of freesia and cedar complete the refined embroidery, while a clean, elegant sandalwood supports the whole structure.

Tonka beans here are used in vanillic substitution fashion to impart a dry, spicy sweetness. But it’s too dry and not sweet enough for vanilla per se. (Same effect as with Guerlain’s use of Tonka Beans instead of vanilla in the heavy dark purple hitter Insolence EDP.) But no violets to my nose from my skin here. My chemistry tends to abnormally magnify and project anything heavy and/or spicy-resinous-woody so this one wafts clearly up to me.

This would probably be too light for those who traditionally love orientals as a group. However on me, it is just restrained enough NOT to develop into a suffocating miasma of a too heavy base, which occurs too commonly on my skin. Could easily be worn in the daytime as well. Quite elegant…well balanced, nicely done.
