Quite solid and too expensive
Many thanks to Sören for the bottling of Ao :-) Actually, this fragrance is not bad at all. But something bothers me here...maybe also the price. The longevity is solid at 6 to 8 hours and the sillage is in the medium range.

Yes, it's the top note...I don't like it that much. It smells very green like unripe figs with a hint of bitter orange. The heart note continues to smell greenish and quite floral of iris, violet and jasmine blossom. A hint of myrrh then creeps in without being really smoky. The base is extremely creamy with a gently caressing sweetness. It also smells delicately woody, balsamic and of tonka beans with a grassy vetiver aroma.

Somehow I'm missing that certain something here. I also find this unisex fragrance rather feminine.

Classy and rich Fig smell
I felt so in love with this materpiece.

This is pure class in a bottle.
The opening is reaaally herbal and bitter, almost a kinda leafy smell, but wait for it because the sweetness is there and is going to appear.

In fact after some minutes, the fig fruit comes in, along with a floral and sweet smell which reminds me a little bit of Caligna. This part is so so elegant and refined, smells so classy and expensive.

Right after that, welcome tonka bean! Fig fruit and mandarine are supported by that creamy sweet base which makes this perfume one of the best things i’ve discovered lately.

Pure Love

It transports me to a seaside and happy, carefree state. In the drydown tonka bean is a shy lead singer with mermaid-like voice in the night

Opening smells exactly like orange blossom flowers! With time it becomes a sweet less citrusy scent giving same vibes as orchidee Vanille.
