SOTD: Frederic Malle Une Fleur de Cassie
I sprayed this one on the back of my neck, intending to experience it for a day without any conscious effort at processing the notes.
That meant that the various elements drifted by my nose, and vanished, and drifted by again, leaving a vague, misty impression of...
You know, the nice harmless white milky glue that you used in kindergarten, back before gluesticks became the vogue? I never realized, before today, that there's a rather sweet, floral note in that stuff. Or, at least, there is in memory, as recalled by this fragrance.
I'm quite confident that the next time I wear this, other notes will emerge, inspiring images of flowers rather than construction paper collages. But this time, well, I'm rather enjoying it.
