Parfums MDCI: Vepres Siciliennes
Impressive official list of notes aside, this feels immediately much more substantial than the ethereal Un Coeur En Mai. I can pick out the tuberose and muguet early on but the rest is a rich well-supported floral bouquet that somehow manages to stay clear of 'heady' territory. The quality of ingredients is impeccable, as it needs to be in order to hold such an ambitious composition together. Vepres Sicillienes earns its rank as one of the most gorgeous floral orientals I've had the pleasure to smell.
Rating: 4.5/5 Classy scent, good sillage, excellent longevity.
