Key Notes of Quelques Fleurs L'Original

What Does Quelques Fleurs L'Original Smell Like

Quelques Fleurs L'Original by Houbigant opens with a noticeable green aroma, courtesy of the galbanum, which is quickly accompanied by a zesty blend of bergamot and a whisper of lemon. Subtle undertones of tarragon add a spicy touch to the citrusy top notes. As the initial notes settle, a lush bouquet of carnation, rose, and tuberose starts to bloom. These floral notes are vividly present, softened by the sweet scents of broom and clove. Orange blossom, violet, and ylang-ylang are less prominent but still detectable, creating an overall rich and spicy floral scent. Beeswax, jasmine, and lily of the valley add a slightly sweet and powdery layer to the heart of the fragrance. As the floral middle notes begin to fade, the base notes of musk and oakmoss emerge, lending an earthy, woody aroma to the scent. Cedarwood, iris, and tonka bean add a warm, slightly sweet note to the base, while a hint of civet introduces an intriguing animalic nuance. Sandalwood rounds out the fragrance with its creamy, woody scent, making Quelques Fleurs L'Original a robust and complex floral perfume with spicy, green, and woody undertones.
