REMINDS ME OF: ANGELIQUE ENCENS BY CREED

Beautiful. This is an aromatic floral incense with a lot going on. Marie Antoinette is throwing a masquerade ball and you are enveloped in so many different pleasant aromas. I smelled citrus, angelica, water cress, spices, basil, incense and flowers. The floral note that most stand out is the angelica and it's followed by rose, jasmine, tuberose, and rhododendron. The champaca is what most intrigued me. I've smelled it up front and in my face before and it does smell true to champaca. It also smells very similar to rhododendron shrub flowers. This thing is epic and fills a room so as the other reviewers have already pointed out this is better classified as aroma therapy or perfume oil or even just incense. I don't think it describes Marie Antoinette at all and yet sometimes I sit under it's cloud and try to imagine her smelling of at least some of the notes. She would have smelled of rose, tuberose, angelica and lavender. The scent is pretty powerful and the incense and citruses remind of Angelique Encens by Creed. In no way is this a dupe for it but it does have some of the same elements. Absolutely beautiful, glorious.

"We had a beautiful dream and that was all" - Marie Antoinette, 1793.

This is a hell of a fragrance. It's far too modern to capture the spirit of Marie Antoinette and she'd never wear this because she would not be able to even make out what it is! The only thing about it that could pass for a perfume worn by Marie Antoinette is it's oiliness. It smells, tastes and feels like essential oil and extract distilled from flowers, incense, and citrus. It does have that Grasse perfumery vibe, very old fashioned, no aldehydes. It's oil. As such it's clearly not wearable as a perfume. It's more like a bath oil or scented candle for your house. I would love this as a diffuser as a spray for your house. It's really beautiful. It begins with citrus, fresh, sharp and lemony. Basil and angelica give it an herbal and even medicinal quality. The heart is floral with lavender that stood out on me more than the rose, ylang-ylang, tuberose and rhododendron. This rhododendron is rare to find in perfumery. It's glorious and heady very strong. The incense note is also quite strong but it's not smoky it's more like a hot myrrh that warms up the fragrance. I can detect the French labdanum and jasmine. It's really nice to be able to smell the different notes as they pop up now and then. This scent lasts a very long time. My house smelled of it for three days. Not bad but this stuff is not going on my skin. I am making it into an aroma for my home. Gorgeous. Even if it's a fantasy it smells like Marie Antoinette at the garden of Versailles where she is smelling roses and rhododendron and just for a moment she is free and alone far away from all the troubles of the nation that would turn against her and remove her head from her shoulders.

Once again I agree with Doc. For me as well this is one of the better ones from this line. Although-I can guarantee you won't like it if you're not a green fan; this has a VERY strong bergamot opening that is sharper than a shark's tooth, so beware the bite.

I found myself liking it better after 20 minutes, which gives it time to air out and become more subtle, kind of like one of those comments from friends that you've been talking too loud.

Don't stick your nose in this... you might get dizzy. It's best as a halo, and this is why I agree with Doc's statement that this whole line's concept is aromatherapy and not perfumery. Again, toss in the wood chips and you've got yourself a nice potpourri frag.

If you have to pick three from this house, I recommend giving this one a nod.
