Reviews of Parfum Sacré by Caron

Parfum Sacré is very warm and spicy scent, without the Opium-Cinnabar style spicy character that scares people away. A romantic yet sexy oriental. The scent transcends the fairy tale of Cinderella and takes you directly into the domain of Persian 'A thousand and one nights' with all that lethal charm of Shahrazad, where you can't help but abandon yourself and to be abandoned inevitably. Elegant, sensual, charming and feminine.

Warm and spicy seductive rose enter the senses to start. Then slowly, an infusion of smooth spices saunter subtley onto the scene. Predominantly, cardamom and sweet cinnamon are discernible with their earthy character in a soft and almost velvety accord. Honeyed amber and myrrh are most noticeable in the dry down, completely soft and gently resinous with just a freckle off pepper and a hint of aromatic rosewod. The combination of notes smells delicious to me. However, except for it's opening 30 minutes, it's overall sheer texture and difusiveness effectively keeps it from being cloying.

Smooth indeed. This is a very physical perfume, which is maybe in contrast with its name.
The myrhh with cardamom, pepper and cynnamon make Parfum Sacré voluptuous, woody and almost spicy.

A warm body scent, like a temple for "matter" an sich.

Very similar to Diptyque's Eau Lente. Both are predominantly cinnamon and myrrh. If you own one, you could probably live without the other. Eau Lente has better sillage.

EDP formula... Beautiful! Milky spices. Perfumed spices. Spices that flow into swirling floral notes. The flowers are blended well. Not overly sweet nor cloying. They are somewhat powdery, dry. Even the carnation comes off as a powdery flower! I believe cardamom and cinnamon really add charm to these flowers.

The heart slowly sinks into a heavy base; a marvelous blend of resinous, sweet-wood, and musky notes. It seems creamier, too. Smoother. Vanilla and myrrh and amber are particularly alluring. Love it!

Cardamom, vanilla, and spice mixed with a white floral. Sweet without being too cloying, there is a soap smell blended with the green notes.

Opening smells like soft leather with cinnamon, but I believe I am really sniffing some musk and spices.

After the initial opening it turns to powder, leather and violets on me. The rose or pepper notes are hidden, but I suspect they are just well blended into the fragrance.

Four hours into this scent and I smell like dusty violets. It is nice, pleasant and safe, but I do not think I will replace my 2 ml sample. This is my second wearing.

The sillage is soft to moderate. The longevity is just okay at six hours or so then it is a skin scent. It did last longer, but close to skin and there 10 hours and still going strong.
