Fragrance OverviewFrassai Blondine (2017)- Natalia Outeda also used M. Vasnier to create one of her debut perfumes for Frassai. Blondine was an early example of the transparent floral gourmand trend that has taken off in the last eighteen months. M. Vasnier takes an expansive floral accord. Then he precisely adds caramel and cocoa until they reach a place where they do not overwhelm the floral but make a sticky platform for them to rest upon. This is one of my favorites of this early floral gourmand style. It really smells like a French perfume, if that’s a thing. Perfume means so many different things to people. To me, it has always meant an unattainable luxurious smell that I can’t define by notes. Don’t get me wrong; now that we have the internet and notes lists, you start to unveil a lot of mystery. But sometimes you read notes, put it on skin, and they are all clearly there. And sometimes they are not. Underneath these mentioned notes is a luxurious bouquet of hidden musks and wonderful aromas that form a perfume I would imagine being rich and French. If I were going to Paris to perfume shop, I would expect to experience something this rich and intoxicating.
Fragrance ReviewOh, this one is very familiar. Help me out, fragrance family. Salted butter pops off the skin; can I take a bite? Smells like I want to. Nice aromatic top with a ton of bakery goodness going on. Cocoa note for me is like the powdered cocoa I used as a kid for chocolate milk. I always piled the heaping spoon as high as I could. The dry down is a familiar amber-like musk dry down with maybe the smallest hint of vanilla and some caramel. I can only attribute the sweet floral smell to ashoka, which is a new note for me. There is a unique, sweet slightly powdery floral that is an unfamiliar aroma to me. I won’t know for sure until I have the note in my hands. I actually keep a list of notes to hunt down; when I smell unique ones, I will get a sample, as I am oh so curious. My guess is this is the note carrying most of the top and heart causing it to be unique and decadent against the butter and caramel. White musks are aglow all over.
"Blondine is a seductive and playful fragrance crafted to intrigue the senses, inspired by the 1920’s French fairy tale. Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a fair and gentle princess grows up beloved by her father, surrounded by precious jewels, exotic fruits and mouthwatering dainties. When left behind in an enchanted forest by a deceitful coachman, Blondine is captivated by the most beautiful flowers she has ever seen. Rejoicing in their profusion and delighting in their perfume, she commences to fill her hat and pockets with them, until she finds herself farther and farther away from home. A fragrant tale of alluring florals, decadent sweets, and enigmatic musks, where courage and hope are the key to living happily ever after; here Blondine’s story begins."
