Infusion Fleur d'Oranger (Prada) Very neroli-petitgrain perfume, different from the cologne type (still with a strong linalil acetate effect) and with a vintage feeling. In fact it smells like a very light and contemporary l'Heure Bleue version with a delicate sweet pea-honeysuckle note à l'ancienne. It has a light orris note, but not regular orris and more Infusion d'Iris accord. It also uses jasmine sambac (a lot of methyl anthranilate). Not so close to the Prada Orange Flower, from their exclusive line.
Brasil Dream (Estée Lauder) a original concept not very fruity (small papaya-guava, but really small) and top but more woody-ambery-airy floral based on patchouli. It has a modern rose note (Aromatics effect), a curious camphor like note on top and chamomile. It is a dry wood combined with a white sensual flower (gardenia and transparent jasmine), reminiscent of Donna Karan Gold, with a lovely apricot lactonic note on the drydown.
Eau par Kenzo Eau Indigo pour femme - Very delicate and strange perfume, floral heliotropine, light and sensual with a very soft orange flower note, violet and just a hint of cologne fruity accord and a light KenzoAmour note. The orange flower is "obtained" through several oils that already contain a great percentage of methyl anthranilate & co notes. The drydown is soft, ambery, sandal wood milky and musky. The drydown is a very well known accord of 4 molecules. Official notes: bergamot, mandarine, jasmin sambac absolute, orange flower absolute, ylang-ylang, tonka, amber. There is also a Eau par Kenzo Eau Indigo pour homme, very contrasted (sparkling and sensual) with ginger, lemon, coriander, elemi, vetiver, cedar, amber - labdanum and sweet - tonka.
Lacoste pour Femme Collection Voyage - copy of J'adore, but rosy and green
DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom - a floral green version of the perfume, less complicated, with an Escape like effect (rose oxyde note) and bitter fruity on top (grape fruit).
