Antidote to our dreary winter
A composition by Olivier Pescheux from 2006 featuring orchid, jasmine and tuberose. "L'Orchidée" is deliciously and unashamedly old-fashioned in nature, but it is a very delicate impression rather than a slavish imitation of the orchid. At first, the scent of the flower seems to be far away, but gradually it emerges shyly through a web of slightly woodsy and powdery notes. "L'Orchidée" is a very smooth, dewy scent, rounded and soft. I only smell some faintly fruity notes in the beginning, heart and drydown are flowery. And a floral fragrance is the best antidote to dreary wintertimes. "L'Orchidée" was on sale last week and heavily reduced and it's not the latest, most fashionable floral fragrance on the market, but I think it's worth a sniff before it will be discontinued.
