Veronique Gabai said her fragrances are inspired by Cote d’Azure culture; between the hedonism of the Mediterranean and her childhood at the French Rivera.
As I think of the French Rivera first thing that pops to my mind is summer. Beach, trees, hot weather. But for some reason Eau de la Nuit feels as an eerie autumn, when the holiday summer season slow down and the streets slowly back to normal. As the temperature decreases welcoming the new season, the air still warm and very enjoyable still. Eau de la Nuit is that, a pleasant walk through a warm path at the Rivera with your favorite person by your side. Eau de la Nuit is a very soft musk, is an intimate warm fragrance. It is soft, feminine and elegant, but at the same time is deep, intoxicated with a really long lasting power.
Noir de Mai is another successfully beautiful scent to me from the Veronique’s house. The rose is undeniable, but is gentle, feminine and really subtle. Noir de Mai is very elegant, slightly creamy and I believe the sea aquatic notes made this fragrance excellent for a summer night out.
Noir de Mai is effortless, is a perfect fragrance for a wealthy woman.
Eau du jour is blast of freshness all over you. This one is a really high quality of citruses. The opening is stunning, luminous, uplifting. Eau du Jour is bright and contains a contagious happiness.
I don’t wear many citrus fragrances but this one might be the exception. The contrast created between citruses and wood is remarkable brilliant.
Eau de Jour will last the entire day.
If Eau du jour is a blast of freshness all over you., Vert Desir is a blast of mint at first spray. The mint here I so inviting as all other fragrances of the house I’ve tested. I am overly impress with the quality used in these fragrances and also with what Veronique Gabai creations, they are all different and all beautiful.
Now, as the mint dissipates a soapy clean scent overcome and stays.
To me Vert Desir is a cleanest after shower fragrance.
It really last long and even is pretty linear after the opening is a fantastic summer, fresh and clean scent.
This one did not make it for me. Beautiful as the rest of the house fragrances, well blended with a great performance but is something in it that doesn’t get well with my nose.
I don’t know what it is, may be an overdose of labdanum…..with an extreme sweet patchouli?! ….who knows, but is not for me. It is very resinous….and clogging
