Fabulously French
Uncommented fragrances No. 161

You could make it easy with this fragrance and refer to the strong parallels to the legendary Pour Un Homme de Caron (my Signature Scent). In both cases, lavender dominates, especially in the opening, but also in the further course of the fragrance, in both fragrances there is a moderately powdery musk note, and moreover, there is a sweet note in the base, because neither fragrance has a real heart, a sweet note that was indicated here with salty caramel. You could also say fudge. And there we are at the typical British scent: Lavender. In Great Britain there are large lavender farms in some regions that cultivate the herb. And there is fudge: everywhere. The parallels to the fabulously french caron are striking, but the salty caramel note makes the new Penhaligon's in Drydwon different. I still like my Caron more, because I find the vanilla note with a little touch of amber in the base of the Caron more elegant, because that's how they are, the French, always a bit more elegant than the rest of the world, but I have to say that Penhaligon's Brilliantly British was worth 9 points to me. How close fabulously french and brilliantly British are to each other and whether the small difference is worth a double purchase is best decided after an intensive comparison test. And you should like Fudge.
