Pierre Balmain Exatic Tiger Orchid! Strong, self-confident and mysterious are all words attributed to the exotic beauty that is the tiger orchid. The heady scent of this flower is a revelation that unfolds tantalizingly slowly on the skin, teasing one’s senses and filling one’s mouth with the taste of fleshy delights to come.
But first, a burst of pink pepper and ginger blossom brings spice, heat, and an unexpected floralcy. The nose, intrigued, is then ready for the full-fat cream of the florals in the heart – the voluptuous tiger blossom surrounded by creamy ylang ylang and scads of pure, fresh white jasmine petals. The warm, cinnamon-tinged vanilla tones of benzoin resin waft up from the base, ushering in earthier notes such as patchouli and the woody, grounding musk of cashmeran. A sensual delight from top to bottom.
