Cacharel Gloria

These sugared almonds, candied roses and peppery woods are all carried on a fluffy rain cloud (for the ozonic note), seemingly innocent until the Amaretto eventually rears its naughty, heady head. This note is cherry-like (in its intensity) yet orange-tinged, penetratingly boozy, lending this otherwise girlish composition a somewhat grown-up, perfumey edge. As with Anaïs Anaïs, Cacharel does the classic good-girl-bad-girl female dichotomy theme well..
