Black Satin (Angelique 1946) is a soft, warm, sparkling oriental gem. The straightforward aldehydic opening and powdery, green notes are sassy but comforting in a way that only a vintage fragrance can be. Notes of orris root, benzoin, styrax, amber, coriander, oakmoss and galbanum are strongest from my observation. Black Satin is an oriental fragrance of true beauty.
Top notes: aldehydes, citronella, lemon, geranium, and galbanum. Middle notes: oil of cardamom, coriander, lily of the valley, lavender, jasmine, and iris.
Base notes: Arabian myrrh, oakmoss, Indian sandalwood, orris, amber, patchouli, cedar, benzoin, vetiver, and styrax.
