Arpege By Lavin

Lanvin's Arpege is an warmer softer and
sweetish younger sister to Chanel no 5
The opening starts with an aldehyde note
but unlike Chanel's aldehydes which has an dryer more harsher drydown of citrus
and Bergamot. But in Arpege it's more
diluted and more softer to the senses'
The note of amber subdue most of the
aldehydes and an strong presence of
peach makes it sweet.

The powdery note of Irises raises above
the dominering note of amber the ellusive note of Lily of the vally and
the quietness of the elegant Calla Lily
floating though the notes
The bottom notes dries down to an dry
spicy coriander turnes to an powder
nuances of rose. after an hour or two
it turns to an fiery Sandalwood and the sweetness of vanilla the inner raisan
of benzoin and the very bottom of patchouli with it's grounded support
that comes in most perfumes.

  1. RayBan サングラスとか、レイバン フレームとかのことがわかるが、ただの情報しか扱いません。昔のようにレイバン モデルの話を作ることはできなくなってしまいました。そして自分の乏しい想像力に恥ずかしいです。タイムマシーンに乗って、昔の自分を一度会えたいです。そして、昔の自分からレイバン RB4105の作り話を聞きたいです。
