With Osmanthus Noble, Eglija drew inspiration from the Baroque paintings of Peter Paul Rubens. It opens with juicy citrus notes and inflections of perfectly ripe, fuzzy apricot that cast a golden hue. New suede appears with rich and heady ylang ylang, creating a passionate heart. In the early drydown, it’s chypre structure really shines, with a perfectly balanced interplay between bergamot, oakmoss, spice and peach before becoming increasingly warm and balsamic. Truly a well-rounded, posh and polished fragrance that displays the perfumer’s technical skills in the French tradition.
