Parure (Guerlain 1975) is dense and tumultuous green florals laced with bergamot that meet a spicy purple plum. Glamorous rose and jasmine mix with sleek iris and the grounding, enduring oakmoss is heroic. Amber finds patchouli into the drydown.
This is a heady but still springlike scent. Very romantic and very lovely.
Top notes: plum, fruity notes, green notes, bergamot and citruses. Middle notes: orris root, narcissus, lilac, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, and rose. Base notes: oakmoss, patchouli, amber, leather, and spices.
