Halle Pure Orchid


Halle Pure Orchid (Halle Berry 2010) has a slightly fruity, sweet but very clean opening in a manner almost reminiscent of White Linen.  As it progresses, notes of star anise, blackberry and orchid become much more noticeable.  And a quiet papaya gently introduces itself.  The drydown is somewhat modest with definite tonka bean and patchouli and actually reminds me a bit of  Ex’cla-ma’tion (another Coty fragrance).  Overall, it’s a happy, pretty, and fairly sweet fruity floral.

Top notes: Amalfi lemon, cactus and papaya.  Middle notes: blackberry, orchid and star anise.  Base notes: patchouli, tonka bean and sequoia.  

Noses: Rodrigo Flores-Roux and Christophe Raynaud.
