WOW!! Colour me astounded ...
I'm reviewing Salvador Dali's eponymous fragrance from a sample sent to me by the lovely EvaK ... and I'm simply astounded that this fragrance has never crossed my path.

The only exposure I have ever had to the Dali collection of fragrances was on a trip to Buenos Aires in the early 2000's, where I stumbled across them in a fragrance shop on Florida Avenue ... one of BA's main tourist shopping drags. I purchased Laguna and Le Roi Soleil, both in the masculine versions and while I preferred the former, once the bottles were finished I wasn't impressed enough to replace either.
This fragrance, on the other hand, is a completely different kettle of fish! The Aldehydes pop and zing into action immediately upon application, followed tout de suite by a lush and creamy bouquet of white flowers, the Tuberose and Muguet immediately more noticeable on my skin. There is a soft fruitiness here too ... manifesting itself in what I can only describe as 'warm ripeness' ... like the fuzz on peaches hanging in sunlight.
A little further in, a narcotic Jasmine note soars up to join the Tuberose in a duel of slightly indolic white floral power. Salvador Dali definitely presents its mid 80's powerhouse aspect here ... this is not a fragrance for little girls! Think severely tailored business suits with enormous shoulder pads and classic, high heeled crocodile skin pumps!
For a brief moment, this fragrance is reminiscent of a darker version of Lauder's White Linen, until the heavenly solid Amber and woodsy base takes over bringing it to its full right as an oriental from a bygone era.

What a lovely discovery!! From the gloriously kitsch bottle to the fabulous juice inside, anyone yearning back to the 80's should definitely give Salvador Dali a try.

Real Art
Another Oriental that I love and keep returning to.
Tuberoses and neroli greet me at the first whiff and swirl around me. Then, the amber and sandalwood join in giving it a feeling of warmth, and -finally- in the dry-down there is a hint of lily of the valley and narcissus without that the scent becomes 'floral'. The silage is great, the longevity impressive. A real recognizable character for autumn/winter, sultry nights, or just because you love wearing a warm, sensual perfume.

It's a classic and stays true to itself. Throughout the years I have -sadly- witnessed many beloved perfumes being "improved". And some of them smelled better, but mostly they were 'damaged'. This one has resisted tampering and smells just as good as it always did. Thank you Dali!
