PENHALIGON'S Monsieur Beauregard

The initial opening blast starts with some lemon, which very soon develops into a sweetish cinnamon impression.   In the drydown a sandalwood arises, which is rather synthetic and not very enticing on my skin.  

Towards the base a vanilla sweetness is added to the cinnamon, and the whiffs of orris I get are quite evident at times, but they are only contributing minimally to the overall development of this creation.  

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

An autumnal scent that is quite creamy, but on me it is not heavy and quite on the less balanced side.  Its synthetic nature is the main drawback here.   2.75/5
