An unknown classic
This relatively unknown Jean Patou fragrance, should be considered a classic by all means. So much attention has been given to Joy over the last few decades, that other fragrances from this line have somehow fallen under the radar. This shouldn't be so.

Moment Supreme is beautiful, rich and smooth on the skin. It dances delicately between being a spicy floral and a dry chypre. It is not unlike Guerlain's Jicky in its approach, however I find Moment Supreme much softer and more powdery.

The scent opened on my skin with a glorious blend of bergamot, jasmine and sweet, syrupy peach. Before long the lavender made a rather aromatic entrance, signalling that this fragrance was of an oriental nature. Moment Supreme is enough to make a statement, however it never comes across as being overdone or too loud. The balance is just right.

Moment Supreme somehow reminds me of Cruella de Vil; quirky, fashionable and sleek, but perhaps less evil. The smoky, incensey drydown conjures up the image of her puffing away with her gloved hand holding a long, red cigarette holder.

I'm not certain as to how old my sample is, or from what decade it was made, but what I do know, is that it still smells beautiful. The longevity is quite impressive too, however I assume it would last a lot longer in its fresher, newer self. Take that as a hint Jean Patou, but please bring it back with no major nor minor tweaks to the composition.
