Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier "MPG" is one line I never really hear enough of. I think seeing pictures of the individual bottles and the color of juice adds more the the personality of the fragrance. As pictures of each individual fragrance in the MPG line aren't plentiful I feel that the entire line is frequently overlooked.
I did a bit of research and wanted to test another fragrance that had berries and vanilla in it as I loved both of those notes in my favorite MPG fragrance Fleurs des Comores and settled on Vocalise.
Inspired from the Bel canto divas who voice extreme passions bordering on insanity,Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier created Vocalise, a romantic red fruit and vanilla symphony. Said to be the fragrance for those who are in love.
The notes in Vocalise are:
Top: Red fruits, Blackcurrant, green notes
Middle: Ylang-ylang, angelica, rose
Base: Musk, sandalwood, ambergris.
It smells like warm strawberry jam on me, along with a mature rose, slight musk and a little bit of wood. It's very pretty and could easily be worn year round as an all day fragrance. I would have liked the woods to have been slightly stronger but I'm sure layering this with a sandalwood lotion would no doubt alter this fragrance to what I'd like it to be. The lasting power of this fragrance is really good as are most fragrances in the MPG line.
It retails for $105/3.3 oz and is sold at Aedes
