Latest Reviews of Embruns d'Ylang

The bergamot is evident form the first moments on, quite fresh but not very strong. A brief period of a - in me - weak saltiness is present, but it is soon engulfed by the ylang-ylang.

The drydown sees the ylang-ylang unfold; it is not a rich and thick ylang, but more on the elegant side and not heavy, more of a nigh-airy quality. Whiffs of a very light tuberose are also present. Later in the heart notes the sambac becomes evident, with light whiffs off banana flavour and of clove.

The base starts off with a soft and light patchouli that lacks any harshness. It continues with the ylang-ylang still present, but the latter fades gradually. A rather restrained and ethereal iris in and unexpected addition - not often is the floral added so late. With the fading ylang-ylang a mild vanilla arises that is gentle, neither heavy nor cloying, and never really develops and major role before the end.

I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

The actual ylang-ylang notes in this spring scent is not very rich, but nicely textured and crafted solidly. Some of the other notes are a bit too generic though. There are moments of originality. Overall 2.75/5.
