E. COUDRAY Jacinthe et Rose

The floral opening - with the hyacinth being prominent indeed - is freshened up a bit by the influx of a lemony bigarade zestiness. 

In the drydown the floral side wins out clearly, with jasmine, peony and touches of muguet resulting in a pleasant potpourri.  This all is made smoother and creamier by an overlay of a pleasant ylang-ylang, and whilst being clearly on the sweet side of fragrances this mix is never too intrusive or cloying.  A notion of a rose comes and goes, but it never assumes the leading role the name of this creation suggests. 

In the base a woodsy component is added, and the sweet character is deepened by an underlying carpet of a tonka impression.  

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.  

A lovely spring scent for day and evening, it is not without an original touch, albeit lacking vividness at times. 3/5.
