Deep, powdery and smoky, so dry that it almost catches in my throat. I love both powder and incense in my fragrances, but this one just smells too dusty on me. I do get the references to old school fragrances like Shalimar, but whereas Shalimar is rich and rounded on me, this one is thin and scratchy. It's a very interesting fragrance, and I can see it being a signature perfume on someone it suits. There's really nothing like it. Sillage: moderate to heavy Longevity: all day on skin, and lasts on clothing until you wash them The name Fleur Oriental is a touch misleading. Although it has some floral notes, this one is pure oriental incense. You must love oriental fragrances to pull this off. It's a definite no for me, but I can appreciate the composition.
