Have you ever been to a patisserie in Paris? Or one of those places that specialise in luxurious macarons? If you have, then this perfume needs no further description. It’s like a sweet in its own right, with notes of liquorice and sour cherry opening up your olfactory senses, before the stars of the fragrance – rose and the macarons themselves – mellow gently on your skin. The base consists of anise, which lends an additional spiciness to the dry down, and woodsy vanilla. It manages to be both sweet and a little bit sour at the same time, certainly a highly unique fragrance that suits women who don’t want to give the game away too quickly. Ooh la la!
