Fragrantica - "Romantic, melancholy, a perfume full of longing and loss but with the promise of reunion breathing life into its soul. It smells to me like what I imagine a 12th century perfume might be like. Simple and elegant and something a lady of the court of Spain might wear."
Fragrantica - "Infanta En Flor’s a great example of benzoin being used to back up the flightier notes in a floral composition. Alongside the oriental notes of cistus and the bitter vanillin of tonka bean the benzoin smells slight, like it’s not immediately noticeable but the beauty of the material is its unparalleled fixative properties."
Fragrantica - "Immortelle is clearly the star here. Its waxy, soapy, and dry amber accord is showcased to great effect. The yellow flower is radiant and sunny in its atmosphere, pairing well with the indolic "orange flower water" note. Cistus labdanum amplifies the amber facets of the immortelle with its resinous scent profile. The Spanish leather note pairs nicely with the cistus, as it too has a leather tonality. The leather accord is thankfully used in a subtle manner, allowing the floral notes room to breathe."
