Latest Reviews of The Virgins / Le Cinéma Olfactif : No. 4 - The Virgins

He opening is aldeydes with florals, which entaiils on my skin a predominance of geranium, rose, muguet and violet. The aldehydes add a fresh charateristic, but they are unusually discrete and blend in well with the floral mix.

The later stages develops a tonka impression, which inexorably rises in strength but never intrudes. It adds a creamy sweetness that is intense, but never cloying or overwhelming.
Later a nonspecific woodsy aroma is combined with a lovely myrrh undertone.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and a longevity of eleven hours.

Pleasant, not very original but well blended, this spring scent performs well and is not too synthetic. The title is a touch weird, but I do smell ingredients, not titles. 3/5.
