Farouche-shy and wild
Farouche by Nina Ricci I could get hold of a long time ago in a bundle together with some other scents.
I can't remember which ones they still were.
It is a two-thirds filled 25ml splash bottle EdP, flat bulbous at the bottom, slim neck at the top. The liquid itself has a rich golden yellow colour and the fragrance is perfectly intact, although the bottle is probably at least 30 to 40 years old Often when I don't know what I'm supposed to wear, I dig out one of my many vintage fragrances. After all, they are supposed to be there to wear, not only to look at and I don't live forever either, so I put them on my skin!

Farouche starts with a surge of aldehydes, not hairspray like, but rather waxy, like fragrances that start similar to the old Chanel N°5. Bergamot and galbanum here not too creaky, but gentle, are to be heard. Then carnation blossoms appear and a whole host of other blossoms such as roses, jasmine and lilies. They melt into a harmonious unity and appear only slightly sweet, so that it is just pleasant.
In the base I show warm amber and decent oak moss.
Altogether I would describe the smell impression as slightly powdery-grown. Farouche is very noble! That's the scent of an elegant lady you would have said earlier. And even today it is still wearable for lovers of such classic fragrances. I feel the Sillage in mediocrity, as well as the durability. It becomes very close after some time, so it is not too intrusive.
The old classics of Nina Ricci are really very good, noble scents.
