Roja Dove Scandal (much like Chanel Cuir de Russie) elevates me to lady-like-ness. I stand taller, feel more empowered, and I do not pick at my nails and cuticles (which is a very nasty habit I have).
her review - I do not find it "enormously rude" as Luca Turin does, but find it gorgeously empowering. No armor here, but instead it helps me morph into a more self-possessed me. And who would think that a fragrance with tuberose would impress me so much?
Notes (from basenotes): bergamot, muguet, orange blossom, freesia, rose, jasmine from Grasse, tuberose, sandalwood, orris, balsams, musk .
Thanks to Vanessa aka Bonks for the sample! And here is a post she wrote about Scandal.
