Parfums de Nicoli – Balkis

Perfume: Balkis
Perfumer: Patricia de Nicoli
Source: Swap – ComDiva
Size: 30mL EdP

Luckyscent Notes: raspberry, Turkish rose, black pepper, coffee extract, iris, benzoin, vanilla pods

Date: 7/2/08 Weather: 84 degrees, sunny

Comments: Starts almost citrusy with a hint of rose. The rose gets stronger and the whole gets woodier. A green, slightly soapy note appears along with the citric rose and wood. The whole smells quite refreshing in this weather. Not much vanilla in this scent, just enough to round everything out. A potential craver. Found myself spraying it twice during the evening for no good reason.

Date: 4/4/09 Weather: 55 degrees, sunny, breezy

Comments: Raspberries, black pepper and roses. Gets more raspberry as it dries down. Still pretty refreshing and green. A man could easily wear this. Doesn’t last very long – or so I thought. The next morning, sniffed my wrist and found a green vanilla musk. Very close wearing after 24 hours, but still very faintly there.
