Very helpful Review
He must have loved her very much
This perfume really shows the effort and care, the time and love invested in its development.
The dense olfactory network is very mature, deep, perfectly balanced between flowers and fruit. It rests on a base that sometimes gives me soft mossy green, sometimes earthy brown patchouli. On top of that the rich scent melange, which my nose is not able to split up into its individual parts.
Neither sweet nor tart, its character is quite unique, and as it effortlessly combines such opposites as the "proud rose" and the "modest violet", the esprit of pepper and the anaesthetic effect of nutmeg, it is easy to assume that certain human qualities of the name patron saint have been fluidly interpreted.
And strong it is, the perfume of Thérèse, accompanies me for many hours and must be chosen with care so as not to overtax myself and my environment.
I can't remember ever having smelled anything that somehow resembles this fragrance and it has absolute recognition value for me.
I like it very much, this vial-filled monument that Edmond Roudnitska erected to his wife, a Taj Mahal of the perfume world...
