One Sentence Perfume Review: Sans Nom, Bourbon French Parfums

Youth Dew in disguise, wearing a crinoline dress and peau de soie slippers.

Notes (my best guess): Bergamot, Lavender, Cinnamon, Rose, Clove, Jasmine, Amber, Vetiver, Musk.

Do we likey?

Oh, yes, very much. I like Youth Dew, but it can be a little too bold for me sometimes. Sans Nom is younger (slightly), gentler, and calls less attention to itself.

That's a perfect description and very fetching too :-)
(love silk slippers, so luxurious....)

I've always coveted a pair of black silk pumps. I have off-white ones, from my wedding, but I could never bear to dye them.
