This has to be one of the most beautiful perfume bottles. I mean the bottle itself is fairly basic, classic but a standard shape however INSIDE the bottle.. Mother Of Pearl! Pretty darn luxurious, no?
On the surface this appears to be a traditional scent, on first spritz the rose hits you and for me that’s not great.. I’m one of the few people who dont LOVE everything rose so I didn’t think I would love it but as it settles you get the deeper, woodier notes which are much more up my alley. The amber musk and jasmine balance out the heavy florals to leave what can only be described as a sensual fragrance, aptly named, Valeur Absolue!
Although I initially thought this was a more mature scent it definitely has modern, sexy edge that would appeal to a younger audience however it’s not going to necessarily be a teen choice. It will be an evening fragrance for me, something I’ll save for those occasions when I want to appear uber sophisticated 😉
A beautiful gift though, that’s for sure! – available online here
