L’ Absolu ( Narcisco Rodriguez 2015) opens with a sharp tuberose and jasmine. They are assertive and elegant. Then a sassy musk colors all the notes with a sort of 80’s retro, chic opulence.
L’ Absolu is slightly sweet and into the drydown the amber is warm, luxurious and very bold in a refined, and quiet way. Yet, all the while, the musk lingers, turning the entire scent into a saucy come hither stare.
Top notes: tuberose and jasmine. Middle note: musk. Base notes: amber, sandalwood and patchouli.
Nose: Aurelien Guichard
