Review of Frederic Malle Une Fleur de Cassie by Mishel63
I have been wearing Une Fleur de Cassie lately and the more I wear it the more I love it. Okay, I agree, it does have a weird opening.
UFdC is one of those perfumes you want to spray about 40 minutes before leaving the house.
Once it hits the skin it changes completely from horrendous to stunning. Just give it some time.
I can see why many people will be turned off by it. It's a very unusual scent, not the type you find at common stores, and definitely not the type of scent the average nose is used to. It's like a whole new set of small particles your brain is trying to "place" somewhere, to connect with something familiar.
Nah ah! It won't work here.
And to my personal experience with UFdC --
I will refrain from sharing details of what it reminds me of upon first spray. Not the nicest mental image, believe me.
But oh my god, the drydown on my skin is so amazing! It smells beautiful, soft, creamy, sweet and a little milky to my nose, a bit powdery, feminine and ohhhh-soooo-sexy. Makes me purrrrrrr......
Giving it only 4 lippies and not 5 due to its strange opening.
