a 180 from A La Nuit and other creamy indolic jasmines
The bergamot hits at the opening and remains quite persistent on me. The musk, sandalwood and jasmine play supporting roles in this on my skin. The heliotrope gives this scent a powdery vibe, somewhat akin to the powder in YSL's Paris. It also has a similar bright sparkling nature, like in old bottles of Yvresse/Champagne. The sillage and longevity are good, about a foot from the body and longevity over four hours so far and maintaining the sillage. I find the quality good with no synthetic notes apparent. However this is more of a green/citrus scent and not so much a jasmine oriented scent. It would be on the other end of the spectrum from creamy jasmines like Serge Lutens' A la nuit.
