L’Esprit Divin (Repost)


L’Esprit Divin (Paul Emilien 2014) is beautiful… but topples just on that side after nearly missing being ever so slightly offensive.

At the start the almost chemical aroma, akin to a cleaning solution, with a pungent mix of incense, cloves, woody ginger, citrus, spicy patchouli and resinous rose is…a little daring. Of course, L’Esprit Divin is also very sharp and fresh with an unmistakably contemporary niche vibe so all boldness is vaguely anticipated and enjoyable. And the accompanying florals with pretty vanilla and dense amber make it, as I said, beautiful.
