There are 2 reviews of Innocente Fragilité by Chabaud Maison de Parfum.


When I was growing up , my siblings used to disdainfully refer to someone a bit precious and too soft for their own good as being a ‘delicate darling'. The name of this perfume, Innocente Fragilité, made this long-slumbering phrase immediately pop back into my head. Chabaud's promo copy goes on about ‘armfuls of delicate white flowers', their purity which links to ‘the fragility of innocence'. Yeah. Maybe they'd got just a wee bit carried away, for white flowers, delicate though they may appear, are notoriously loud in announcing their presence.
So all virginal white clichés aside, let's inspect the thing itself, which turns out to be a bold enough jasmine, creamy and a touch green, wallowing on a cloud of cleansing laundry musks. The latter are responsible for snipping out much of the jasmine's natural sultriness and the overall olfactory impression gets a bit rubbery. Okay, but not pushing any envelope as far as white florals go.


Innocente Fragilite opens with with a slightly sweet mild orange blossom and jasmine white floral tandem before transitioning to its early heart. As the composition enters its heart the jasmine takes the fore with the orange blossom remaining in support adding hints of gardenia to the mix as clean white musk rising from the base adds a detergent-like breezy undertone. During the late dry-down the white florals near completely vacate the composition as the clean fresh synthetic white musk turns ever so slightly powdery through the finish. Projection is minimal and longevity well below average at about 4 hours on skin.

Innocente Fragilite is quite pleasant smelling and easy to wear. It takes the jasmine and orange blossom florals and uses the synthetic white musk to thin them out and freshen the overall effect, making the composition extremely versatile. As the presentation is so light and airy while keeping projection to a minimum, it seems well-suited to situations where one might not want to wear something so heavy -- possibly office wear when working in close quarters, for example. The only issues I have with the largely successful composition are its relative brevity and its liberal use of synthetic white musk in the base that comes off smelling a bit too similar to laundry detergent at times when coupled with the mild white florals. Still all-in-all Innocente Fragilite seems a good option for those who enjoy white florals but need to tone down the volume more than a bit. The bottom line is Innocente Fragilite provides a nice safe versatile white floral composition that despite its relatively poor longevity and synthetic nature still shines, earning a "good" to "very good" 3 to 3.5 stars out of 5 rating and a recommendation to white floral lovers who want to play it a bit safe while still smelling good.
