Foret de Becharre by Nez a Nez
It may be just me, but I can't seem to associate the theme of this fragrance to what transpires on my skin. The light, the dark, the forest perimeter and then deep inside the enchanting woods are transitions that must have happened in the mind of someone else. It surely didn't happen to me.
That said, I still like my sample wearings of Foret de Becharre. Misnaming a scent isn't a crime in the fragrance world and it happens quite often. What's important is what has always been crucial when sampling. Is it good and does it justify its price?
The listed notes do become realized during the samplings, but they are toned down by way of blending and vanilla is the one note that really asserts itself above its brethren. The opening and heart accords are actually very good in spite of being blurred.
Sillage is good and longevity is approximately 6 hours on me. The price point of $160 per ml. may be "pushing it" a bit, but bottom line is that Foret de Becharre is a nice smelling, shared fragrance. Thumbs up from Aromi for yet another Nez a Nez and as always, a sample wear is recommended.
