Bourbon French Collection 1: Alessandra

I tested Alessandra the other day and didn't mention it so I'm testing it again tonight.

Described on the Bourbon French site as: Alessandra, this scent is rich & powerful, mysterious & seductive. A heavy Oriental spice with smooth woody undertones.

This fragrance starts off incredibly strong with a hint of adelhydes, it has a very vintage style at first which loses its momentum over time dries down to a powdery carnations, woods and very subtle clove on me.

Based on what I smell, I should love this scent but it seems like there is too much going on and don't like it as much as I should.

I'd reserve this for colder weather and the staying power is really good in this one as it lasted on me the other day for hours.

Alessandra retails for $65/1 oz. for the parfum through Bourbon French Parfums.
