One Sentence Perfume Review: Bois Oriental, Serge Lutens
An olfactory translation of the third movement of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 12--rich, classic and innocent, all at once.
Notes per Bois de Jasmin: violet, peach, plum, rose, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, musk, Atlas cedarwood, and vanilla.
Portrait of a Boy, by Jean-Baptiste Greuze, 1763-64. Possibly a portrait of Mozart. Image from Wikimedia Commons.
