A very vintage mandarin orange is flanked by a spicy, tea-like bergamot (Lucien Lelong 1936) in Indiscret. Green, slightly bitter galbanum meets a subtle tuberose, woody, indolic and herbal jasmine, sugary ylang ylang, and well-rounded rose.
Indiscret is aptly named. It’d be considered quite smoky except it’s so predominantly floral… It is, however, animalic and even a little spicy. It’s not a “day fragrance” although it is ladylike and soft.
Top notes: mandarin orange, galbanum and bergamot. Middle notes: tuberose, iris, african orange flower, jasmine, ylang-ylang, rose and geranium. Base note: woodsy notes.
