the non gourmand out of the gourmand trio
I smell violet powder and musk. The violet powder reminds me of Besame's pressed powder compact and there is so much of it that one might sneeze at the first whiff. The musk is a clean soapy white musk and the overall effect of the notes gives an elegantly old-fashioned vibe. This fits a lavender boudoir with lots of frills and feathers, impractical but beautiful bijou and ornaments decorating the unmistakably feminine abode. Sillage and longevity are excellent as with the other two members of this gourmand series, this being non gourmand to my nose though, try as I might to smell the white chocolate note. I would recommend to lovers of violet powder and vintage vixens.
