Now, returning to Cabotine, a chypre floral scent feminine introduced on the market in 1990 and developed by perfumer , from IFF. The perfume enjoyed a huge success in , since of its “second skin” effect. I had an occasion to test it 2 years ago, on account of the fact that my aunt is a fan, and Cabotine is treasured in her collection. Sadly, I was not even half moved as my aunt was, but then again, this is a question of taste.

My aunt helped me to test the fragrance by spraying a little over her wrist. The opening is where I detected an intoxicating mixture of fruits: black currant, peach, plum and coriander. Later, followed the heart with its floral accords, embodied by a blend of Rose, tuberose, Ylang-ylang, carnation. In the extreme dry down I perceived a note of violet, in a combination of cedar, sweet vanilla and Tonka bean.

The entire composition is supposedly structured around the note of , known also as , reportedly this being as well the debut of the respective note in a fragrance structure. The bottle has a common shape; however the stopper, created by in the shape of a flower looks interesting.
