High Glycemic Index Cream Custard
You must love sticky sweet gourmands to even sample this one. It is true to its mandate of being lusciously creamy, milky and vanilla as well as a very distinct burnt sugar note in the middle. This is a sweet vanilla cream ambrosia at first, but it becomes rather cloying as it dries down. The base is white soft powdery musk, but is a little too synthetic for my liking. Still, I love to wear this scent when I just want a sweet sugar fix. The sillage on this one is about 1 meter (3.28 ft.) but wears thin after about 3 hours, which is usually fine for me, as it becomes even sweeter than it start out. For those that can't get enough, this layers flawlessly with the custard textured highly fragranced LM body cream and the body wash, which all together will keep the scent lingering close to the skin for about 8 hours. I think this has a little something in the composition which makes it not office/business appropriate, IMO. I consider it more of a romantic evening wear and night out on the town scent. This also layers well with Comptoire Sud Pacifique's Vanille Abricot and L'Or Torrente, both of which add a bit of dimension and interest to this very traditional vanilla cream. I could see layering this with a bit of citrus, tuberose or jasmine to round it out a bit as well. I tend to crave this in the early Spring when it is still cool outside, but this could easily be a year round base layer if you love it and can get passed the synthetic accord in the base. As for me I am neutral on it, I loved it at first, now I reach for it rarely and when it is gone I will go for a more natural smelling and complex creamy vanilla from La Maison de La Vanille, I think.
