Resinous, sugar-coated carnation, lily-of-the-valley, jasmine, rose and violet mix gloriously in this Caron concoction (Caron 1927). It smells like an actual garden (even with a touch of dirt) from a honey-hued dream. But it’s not a quiet floral and the sillage that wafts about seems almost edible. Delightful!
Top notes: carnation and rose. Middle notes: jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and violet. Base notes: musk, clove, vanille and sandalwood.
