This 1998 Balmain creation is kind of a strange bird; albeit strange is very good in this case. This was marketed to women as a floral fragrance, but we have found it to be a really good masculine floral chypre.
Uncomplicated and linear on me, it opens with a spicy top, floral heartnotes and an earthy, woody base. Simple......but very wearable in all sorts of situations. I believe the basenotes transform this into a more manly scent than most women care for; especially if they were expecting a feminine floral creation.
Great aroma and bang for the buck as it still can be had for next to nothing. An intelligent addition for men wanting to add a floral to their drobe.
