The fruity orange-mandarin opening is a warm, quite brightly growing experience. A peachy component is also present soon after the commencement. Soft and welcoming.

The drydown marks a shift into the floral realm. Iris is prominent, but a restrained rose remains in the background, more an accompaniment than the soloist.

The base ventures into the woodsy realm, with a soft musk towards the end. Throughout the base a soft patchouli comes and goes, a patchouli without and harshness and not very dark. A times I get whiffs of a minimal powderiness in the background.

I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

This spring scent for evenings is of delightful intensity and mature sophistication. Whilst it can lack some structure at times, it is blended very well from top- quality ingredients.   Very pretty indeed.    3.75/5.
