Les Fleurs du mal

This fragrance is not about the tuberose, though that evil beauty is definitely there in the middle notes. nuit de Bakelite opens up with an explosion of intoxicating ylang-ylang, saffron (one of the most realistic smells of saffron, just like when you open a box of saffron) and galbanum. It sounds green, bitter, plastic, synthetic, but there is something fascinating about this perfume. It is very dense, bossy, loud. I have vintage Chanel Cristalle edp, they set quite similar mood for those who wear them. Its around 20 degrees in Denmark and this fragrance flies beautifully around, leaving a 10 meters tail, filling up any room you'd wear it too. So a big no for the office. It needs space and warm weather.
Its not similar to Fracas by pyramid, but it can definitely take its place in terms of being an iconic white-yellow flower, bitter galbanum sillage monster.
