Hermessence Vanille Galante
This fragrance opens with the exotic note of ylang ylang framed by indistinct green notes and a dash of spices. The head accord smells of water, green stems and flowers, it is salty and vanillic at the same time. As the fragrance progresses, the flower and vanilla notes dominate the accord, creating in my mind the idea of a large Vanilla orchid patch in various stages of bloom. The fragrance is elegant, exotic and feminine. It is perfect for spring and cool summer evening. Lasts for roughly 5 hours on my skin.
