A Royal Dali
Salvador Dali is one of the very few houses for which I've concluded: if the notes appeal, blind buy. I like Le Roy Soleil (The Sun King) the most from the sample set just in, which also has: Eau de Dali, Dalimix Gold, Dalissime and ItIsLove. I found them all not only wearable, but beautiful. At first I assumed it was because they share the same notes, but they don't. Usually I'm attracted to the solidly alluring base combo of amber, musk, sandalwood and vanilla. That probably has a name, or ought to, something like Basenotes of the Gods. Le Roy Soleil has it, as well as several of my favorites florals. That doesn't account for why I'm drawn to the Dalis that don't. There's no single note that all of them share. This is also true of his paintings. All don't have the same elements. No mistaking a Salvador Dali, though, because whatever the content his distinctive style is instantly recognizable. If a Dali painting became available, art collectors the world over would clamor to blind buy it. For me, it's the same with Dali perfumes.

Le Roy Soleil is a classic oriental (bergamot, jasmine, amber, musk, vanilla) in which the whole exceeds the parts. Unlike lusciously heavy orientals of the 80's, this one is a refined and delicate blend. Its deft addition of fruits, citrus and spice, its dash of vetiver, raise the scent to catch sunlight and deliver it to the noses of appreciate sun kings, and us. Off to find an FB.

p.s. Found it! Should have mentioned Dali's painting called Le Roy Soleil, was inspired by the actual sun king Louis XIV, Europe's longest reigning monarch. Favorite Louis quote: Has God forgotten all I have done for Him? The painting inspired the scent.
