The Quartier Latin (Latin Quarter) is part of the 5th and 6th arrondissements in Paris and has been the heart of student and intellectual life in Paris for more than 800 years. The fragrance features notes of cedar, sandalwood, clove, tonka bean and amber.
An excerpt from a review From Now Smell This:
Memo Quartier Latin is a sandalwood perfume that uses great-smelling Australian sandalwood. Quartier Latin reminds me of an exotic, wood-flavored macaron; it has a sweet character and is a "dessert" you can indulge in all day. It's macaron consists of a top layer gently scented with citrus-y cedar and a bottom layer flavored with coconut-y sandalwood...both layers contain sweet vanillic tonka bean. Between Quartier Latin's melt-in-your-mouth macaron layers there's a fresher-tasting gelée filling flavored with tongue-numbing cloves and lemon peel. The Quartier Latin macaron is topped with a milder clove and more intense tonka bean glaze (this would be your "aftertaste" or base notes).
All Quartier Latin's ingredients smell great (and expensive). Though the sandalwood-cedar notes seem on the sheer side, they are tenacious: they mingle, separate, fuse and then diffuse for hours. I got raves on Quartier Latin 12 hours after I applied just four sprays of the perfume. If you love sandalwood and cedar, try it.
Quartier Latin is an eau de parfum, edp. This is a discontinued fragrance.
