Olfactory Observation #6: Chypré Lemon {Scented Thoughts}


Smelling an organic Verna lemon from Spain, it hits you out of the blue. The fruit smells like a chypré perfume. It seems to reveal a lady-like sillage for a little while. Then, this elegant urbane nuance fades away as it becomes juicier. The scent of the lemon is delicatly sparkling, aldehydic. This nuance must have appeared within the composition of a luminous chypre. It reminds you that chypres have that essential facet to themselves, anchored in the citrus groves of the Mediterranean.
