Everybody here wants to come in sweet.
But why not take our time and let love bloom?
Rushing into lust feels so incomplete;
Let’s balance our hearts before we resume.
Poetry inspired by the perfume Orchidee Vanille from Van Cleef & Arpels.
Yesterday was about Vanille Intensee, so I thought it was only appropriate for me to taste Orchidee Vanille today for a side-by-side. So how was it? Well, I found Vanille Intense to be like a bottle of pure vanilla from the pantry – simple, enjoyable, great for layering. Orchidee Vanille, on the other hand, has the same burst of vanilla, but balances it out with an equal dose of floral (vanilla orchid?) which makes it smell much more like an actual perfume. While I appreciate the simplicity of Vanille Intensee, I enjoy more the full and balanced blend within Orchidee Vanille.
