Salvador Dalí Le Parfum (Parfums Salvador Dalí)

Remember what I said about Madame Jovan's gorgeous sandalwood drydown, stranded at the tail end of a disastrous chemical spill? Here it is paired with an head note worthy of its charms-- a delicious neroli that peals through the air like the "Morning" flute prelude from Peer Gynt, all sunlight and birdsong spilling over the horizon. Furthermore, the heart of this fragrance is an extravagant bouquet of springtime flowers, petals glistening like watered silk. That mouthwatering sandalwood clinches it: this is impeccable.

Other Dalí fragrances may be hit-or-miss. Love them and leave them as you will, but if you come across this one... let yourself be taken.
