One of the wonderful treasures I bought during Sniffa Fall Ball was a 4 ml mini of Mandy's creation Parfum de Maroc . To tell the truth , I really wanted Leather , but Bendels was sold out of it . Since I am striving to collect all of her fragrances and they did not have Candide , I " settled " for Maroc , and lucky me !
Spicy deliciousness unfolds when I apply Parfum de Maroc on skin . Rose ? Not at all - it is simply the pillow upon which all of this wonderfulness rests , not a star player . The quintessence of what a gourmand should be , not sweet but tangy , piquant , complex . There is just enough black pepper to balance the galangal and just enough saffron to balance the yummy cardamom . Ah Mandy , your genious shines again , and I want a bottle of EDP .
Santa are you listening ? I was a very good girl....
