Dusita Melodie De L'Amour was launched in 2016, created by Pissara Umavijani. This is a big gardenia bloom that will take your breath away with its beauty on the open, revs up that rank gardenia and then it somehow pulls back, just at the edge of JAR Jardenia and soars.
“My feeling for you is like a flower blooming in an empty room.” - Montri Umavijani
Dusita Melodie De L'Amour has Gardenia, tuberose, honey, peach, broom, lily of the valley, jasmine, cedar, musk.
Luca Turin - "Judging by the three extant Dusita fragrances, I reckon there may be a beautiful new voice out there. The first I smelled was Mélodie de l’Amour. It is a white floral, and a very good one at that, but disconcertingly rendered in faded grey tones that remind me of the paper note in Dzing! Note that, for once, faded and grey do not here mean weak or indistinct. MdA has a powerful presence, but feels like it is heard through radio static on short wave: immediately recognisable, yet veiled and remote. Then I smelled Oudh Infini. It could hardly be more different, powerfully animalic and musty. But again, the weird, drifting grey fog was there, this time muting the bright colors of orange flower and rose. I moved on to Issara, a fougère that smells of rain, wet tea leaves and cold cigars. To paraphrase Lady Bracknell, three begins to look like intent.
Kafkaesque - "Speaking of openings, the white floral one of Melodie de L’Amour is like few things I have ever encountered in a non-vintage fragrance, and I can only summarize it as heartbreakingly, heart-stoppingly exquisite. You know when your heart seems to stop for a beat and your breath catches in your throat at the sight of something truly beautiful? That’s what happened the first, second, third times I tested Melodie de L’Amour, and what I’m sure is bound to happen each time thereafter as well. It’s a stunning, dizzying, utterly captivating bouquet of tuberose and gardenia, in addition to a “blend of 150 varieties of white flowers enhanced by the rich, golden notes of Wild Honey.” If Fracas was the divaesque Maria Callas of white florals, sweeping aside all in her path like one of Wagner’s Valkyries, then this partial tribute is a Swan Lake prima ballerina’s delicate, fluttering arms in the haute couture version of a tutu."
The Black Narcissus - "Melody De L’Amour, a ravishing white floral with an animalic, woody finish – all tuberose, gardenia, honey, Indian jasmine and Mona Nuit Noire sultriness, is quite something: tenderly erotic, potent yet refined- the passion of the above poem suited to its colouring in of emptiness and the void of nothingness"
Basenotes - "What all, I believe, might agree upon is that this is a plush white flower composition of exceptional grace, saved from being overly precious by a judicious touch of crispy green. As much as I love my Carnal Flower (another green-tinged white flower offering), Ropion’s big tuberose can smell decidedly indelicate next to this. To my nose, Melodie de l’Amour is ineffably lovely, and certainly represents one of my favorite floral releases in recent memory."
