I felt a special connection to this scent, one that transports and makes me time travel....the feeling of woods, raw earth, damp forests all play up this fantasy of being somewhere far away high up overlooking a valley of wilderness nestled in a mountain chalet with my love waking up to an intimate early morning view of natures untouched glory...
Top Notes Bergamot, Lemon, Basil; Heart Notes Fig, Cypress, Orange blossom, Iris; Base notes Woods, Resins, Coffee
As I sprayed this on my unscented wrist, the first whiff of a distinctive spicy green accord that cuts through, may be the basil which is made livelier by the fresh bergamot and lemon. Within seconds I get engulfed in a smoky lingering aroma of the coffee notes that generously make their way into my nostrils. This coffee is more green and not quite roasted. After this initial smoky-spicy trance a beautiful fougère heart begins to show...which transports you into a deep forest where the ferns and mosses dominate and theres a chill in the air. I attribute this chill to the iris in the core of Blanc de Sienne.
This scent has been created by perfumers Anne Sophie Behaghel and Amélie Bourgeois and was released in 2015. Evody creations lie in the realm of mood perfumery where the creators propose rare, intimate and precious fragrances that evoke an association which is more experiential than olfactory.
This could not be more true than in Blanc de Sienne which has that rare ability to pick you up and immediately ship you into another domain within your memories or dreams, fantasies even.
Though this scent is stated to be balsamic, the resins are more smoky and "incense" like in the dry down, while it remains very smoky and fresh all throughout.
I find this scent to be one that I would wear very selectively and not that often, primarily to save and cherish the contents for longer. It is the type of scent that creates an intimate and a personal association and so I would choose an intimate setting like a dinner out with my husband to wear this one!
