Fragrance of the Day Challenge:
I was introduced to Chantecaille's Frangipane by one of my favorite MUA reviewers Impishnature. She introduced me to many of my favorite holy grail fragrances. Her reviews produced countless lemmings for me.
This specific fragrance with its huge jasmine note was not something I would normally fall for.
The drydown is all vanilla goodness and is lush.
Like a big vat of cream.
There is a catch with this fragrance. There is a cucumber vibe in the opening notes for some wearers.
I have been blessed.
I get a quick whiff of green and then the jasmine clubs it over the head.
This jasmine note is a thug. It is not dainty or subtle.
It is out for blood and taking names.
Notes are Exotic Orange, Water Hyacinth, Violet, Jasmine, Frangipani Blossom, Ylang-Ylang,Vanilla, Musk and Vetiver.
