Secret Joly (2018) - Oriza L. Legrand

Secret Joly (2018) A familiar surprise
A sample of this was given to me by a generous swap partner. I did a test spray in the sink, thought: Hm! Floral! - and left the room. When I came back some time later, the scent had developed, it was darker, spicier, heavier, and I thought:...

Luscious, sweet and musky carnation with some sandalwood. Similar to New York, New York from same brand, but a little juicier, less dusty.

Gorgeous woody-oriental with sweet beeswax, but the strong cedar note tends to get stuck in my throat and can sometimes be a challenge.

Green, fleshy, almost tobacco-spicy orchid. Well-crafted and powerful, but not really a perfume that I am comfortable wearing.

Take vintage Opium, and add a pint of cream - that's Volage. Almost edible, and really yummy!
