Fleur de Fleurs Eau de Toilette
2.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I have the vintage one with the cap shaped like a flower. I can smell the fresh greens and aldehydes at first. Then florals (mostly powdery iris, but also a little hyacinth and lily of the valley) along with an Avon "Vanilla Musk", and a honeyed leather (which is the civet). Reminds me standing in a department store in the 1980's inhaling the scent of new leather goods next to the perfume counter. If you like fresh, high pitched aldehydes, smooth sweet powdery florals, and civet/leather then you may love it. I like all these things in other scents but there is a bitter dusty undertone to the powder I don't like. It makes me sneeze and clings to synthetic fabrics through repeated washings. It reminds me of old dusty cardboard / a barely used room that hasn't seen a vacuum for several months, combined with the acrid scent of non-deodorized armpits that haven't seen a shower for a few days. Type - powdery floral green Top notes - aldehydes, green notes, bergamot, lemon Heart Notes - cyclamen, rosemary, magnolia, iris, lilac, jasmine, hyacinth, ylang-ylang, lily of the valley Base Notes - sandalwood, musk, civet

Les Belles de Ricci - Amour D'Amandier / Almond Amour

In looking for marzipan fragrances, I gave this one a try, but it's a super super sweet fruity scent with too little almond of any kind in it. The almond is there at the beginning, but it is subsumed by the sweet sticky fruit. I'd love to have the almond without the fruit notes. Not what I was looking for at all. Eh as an overall scent, not bad, but too sweetly fruity for my style.

I have the tiny remnants of this fragrance, purchased decades ago, in a tightly sealed bottle in a dark corner of my closet. Every now and then, I will open it and take a sniff of what is a truly lovely and calming fragrance from back in the days when not almost every fragrance smelled like EVERY OTHER fragrance on the market. I would dearly love to find a bottle of this but I fear it was discontinued a long time ago. It is/was such a gorgeous perfume.
