Noel Au Balcon
Brand Etat Libre d'Orange
With its lusciously rounded top notes of honeyed mandarin, apricot, vanilla, cinnamon and orange blossom, Antoine Maisondieu's Noël au Balcon certainly conveys a sense of mischievous, festive flesh. The firebrand part kicks in with an unusual, nose-tingling red chili pepper matched with the bitter, slightly citrusy flavor of nigella sativa, better know as black cumin but also, provocatively, as devil-in-the-bush (no snickers!) or, in France, as Venus's hair.
After the heat's died down, Noël au Balcon moves smoothly to a patchouli, amber, musk and vanilla base lit up by ylang-ylang-like solar notes. Now the firebrand's really ready for trouble.

Noel au Balcon is just fun- it's kinda loud, kinda sweet, and seems like one should be holding a festive drink while wearing something sparkly. On my skin, it's a sillage monster, so I use 1 spritz. That said, there's nothing else like it in my collection and I'm glad to have a decant. As always, Scent Split has impeccable customer service.
