Carven Dans Ma Bulle Eau de Parfum, which is described as a powdery floral oriental fragrance, is a warm and rich fragrance that sits surprisingly close to the skin. What is surprising, given that its base-notes consist of Vanilla, Sandalwood and Patchouli, is that it is in actuality far lighter and fresher than its aromatic facets might suggest. The top and middle notes effectively counterbalance the base notes, which would normally be quite assertive save for the vanilla, and the end result is an oriental that is tempered by a fruity floral sensibility.
That it is a lighter permutation of a floral oriental fragrance is also clearly seen in its sillage. After it dries down it intimately burrows into the skin and does not announce itself to passersby. A few hours later you may think that it has disappeared altogether, but a cursory sniff of the wrist affirms that it is, in fact, still there. On my skin it begins its journey as a warm and round powdery oriental punctuated by Litchi Rose, Peony and Jasmine, but later the Manderin Orange announces itself and any hint of Patchouli fades away. While its initial complexity may confound your olfactory receptors– as you try to identify its many notes–as it dries down you will likely feel soothed and comforted by its warmth and inherent beauty.
- Top Notes: Litchi Rose, Mandarin Orange, Peony. The sparkling fruity freshness of Litchi Rose is blended with the floral delicacy of Peony for a very natural hook.
- Middle Notes: Sugared Almond Accord, Heliotrope, Jasmine Sambac. The unique addictive quality of the Sugared Almond Accord combined with Heliotrope enhances the ultra femininity of Jasmine Sambac.
- Base Notes: Vanilla, Sandalwood, Patchouli. Vanilla and Sandalwood enrich the floral heart note with elegant sensuality.
Fragrance Family: Floral, oriental, powdery.
