Armfuls of Purple Flowers Laid on a Warm Ambery Base

Heart Notes: Egyptian Jasmine, Orange Flower, Tuberose, Parma Violet, Iris
Base Notes: Heliotrope, Musk, Tonka Bean, Vetiver, Amber

This review is for the eau de parfum which is a rich, amber colour unlike the eau de toilet which is more yellow in colour.

Espirit de Oscar opens with the bright, fresh scent of a juicy lemon just picked from a lemon tree growing in the warm, temperate climate of Sicily and sliced open before your eyes. It is an appetisingly fresh and fruity note that is neither sharp and acrid, nor artificially sweetened by honey or sugar of any type. The top notes are refreshing, and they last a surprisingly long while.

After 5-10 minutes, the heart notes slowly begin to open. Now, the fragrance feels as though armfuls of purple flowers have been given me. I mainly detect iris, violet, and already an abundance of slightly doughy heliotrope. In the background, surprisingly, unusually demure are the white florals. This time, the stars are the purple flowers, the dry iris, the gently sweet violet, and the doughy heliotrope.

The heart notes themselves last for quite a long time, and then eventually, finally, roughly one hour into the fragrance, the warm base notes emerge. Heliotrope is still quite prominent in the base, though. Beneath the heliotrope I detect the warmth of amber with shy hints of tonka bean and musk. I do not detect the vetiver here, but that is fine. The warmth of the amber, tonka, and musk make the perfect chorus for the star player---the heliotrope. This fragrance is about purple flowers in general and heliotrope in particular. If you do not like heliotrope, then this fragrance will not likely appeal.

Espirt de Oscar is feminine and soft. Projection is about an arm's length. Sillage is soft but noticeable. Longevity is good. I think this is a fragrance that would work well either day or night provided you love heliotrope. The original Oscar will always be my favourite, but Espirit will shower you with sunny, fresh lemon, and then it will surround you with an abundance of purple flowers until finally, you are made warm and cozy by the ambery base. It is a lovely perfume, and it is very good value for the price point.

Fragrance: 7.5/10
Projection: 6.5/10
Sillage: 6.5/10
Longevity: 6.5/10

21 July 20 ETA: The more I wear this fragrance the more I love it. It is very aptly named. Oscar was elegant and loved women. He dressed women and scented them with all of the elegance, charm, and reverence he held for the fairer sex. Gorgeous fragrance!
