Like a mischievous smile Eau Sans Pareil, water without compare, is full of promise and shimmering allure. Its enthusiasm sparkles with innocent, watery fruits (mandarin, kumquat, raspberry) but whilst crisp, this chypre is never sharp. A soft roundness displays biscuit-like sweet comfort in a floral orchestration (jasmine, rose, lily of the valley) shaped with the unidentifiable-but-there liquorice and clove. The powdery layers of orris swirl into a darker home: patchouli, vetiver, oakmoss and amber crystals that add depth to the lightness of this radiant abstract scent.
Penhaligons Portraits the Bewitching Yasmine Eau de Parfum 75ML
She is by all appearances soft and quiet. Yet at the same time, she conducts herself with a rare force. Some, the less determined, would find her distant, maybe cold, but appearances are notoriously misleading.
Like all intriguing (and bewitching) women, the perfume of Yasmine is hot and cold. The unique sharpness of rich, strong coffee is set off against a creamy spice accord.
