Rose Ardoise is a unisex rose perfume, with little bit of spiciness. It also has ambroxan in, which gives a cashmere skin-like warm feeling to the base. As it settles, the leather & nutmeg undertone shines through, which is what I believe is giving it the unisex feeling. The projection of the perfume is great and frankly took me by surprise. So if you are looking for warm rose that isn’t floral and not everyone is wearing, this might be something you would want to pick up.
Cacao Porcelana in a nutshell is like a chocolate liquor. There’s a beautiful rum note in there, and very strong chocolate note, it’s like walking into a man’s underground den, or woman’s. Its bittersweet finish lingers, leaving a lasting impression of bliss. This is the perfect datenight fragrance. While it may be pricier than mainstream options, Cacao Porcelana is an exceptional treat for anybody who loves dark warm leathery notes and chocolate!
Iris Ebene is an oriental spicy perfume with hints of Iris. I normally associate iris with femalescents but this one is pretty unisex leaning towards masculine, with all the spicy leather suede notes. The iris in here is not sweet at all, its more powdery and goes really well with the pepper & woody notes. As it dries down, the ebony wood emerges, adding depth and a touch of sweetness.
Poivre Pomelo is beautiful fresh summer scent, much different from all the other scents in the range. The pomelo or grapefruit is the star of the show, and underneath that they have added a bit of green notes like osmanthus & angelica. The fragrance settles into a warm, woody base with subtle hints of vetiver, making it pretty unisex.
Santal Blond is as the name suggests a oriental sandalwood perfume. It’s got really heavy sandalwood & cardamom notes, its quite unisex if you love the smell of cardamom. It’s quite fresh, not leathery or musky like the other ones in the range. It’s more suited for sporty occasions or day picnics as opposed to evening activities in my opinion.
Bois d’Ambrette to me feels really masculine, with its ombre musk note. It opens with a subtle citrus brightness, followed by the soft, musky notes of ambrette seed. As it develops, the fragrance deepens into the rich, woody heart, where cedarwood takes the spotlight, this would great for office wear but better yet for evening dates or parties.The scent has impressive longevity and sillage, and I would love to smell this on a man.
