About this deal

Opening is soapy cloves and the dry down is just generic, soapy, dated, perfumey floral and patch… and so strong I can taste it too. I am usually fond of oriental, sweet and gourmand fragrances, so I knew I would love this one as well. It smells great from the bottle and when hanging in the air after spraying, as soon as it touches my skin it turns revolting unfortunately.

While not listed in the notes I keep thinking I smell Anise, which I think is an illusion of the liquorice mixing with the other spices. This is one of those scents that unapologeticaly take the stage, it is thick, dense and overwhelming. A low calorie gourmand with a quiet woody floral background, I think it most closely resembles the smell of cinnamon raisin bread.

This is sweet/sour, I was expecting spicy cinnamon buns but what I get from Elephant is more apple pies (not overly sweetened or ripe). As it dries down, it becomes more creamy, almost lactonic, with vanilla giving it a decent sweetness, reminiscent of Indian kulfi ice cream.

Of course, I can see why it’s an obvious choice for cooler seasons because of the warm spicy feel of it.I always found Cinnabar to be spicer than the sweeter, more powdery and vanilla Opium, and this was Cinnabar at the start. Read about this perfume in other languages: Deutsch, Español, Français, Čeština, Italiano, Русский, Polski, Português, Ελληνικά, 汉语, Nederlands, Srpski, Română, العربية, Українська, Монгол, עברית. It seemed to hold such a special and iconic place in many people's hearts, yet seemed to be also polarizing for some, so my curiosity was sparked. L'Elephant makes me want to curl up next to my fireplace wrapped up in a warm cozy blanket, whilst sipping on my chai latte.
