Scent of a Woman | Comme une Evidence by Yves Rocher



Freshly picked roses, warm rhubarb tones, innocent lilies-of-the-valley. Green, crisp notes and salty nuances. Feminity and harshness. Angel and demon. Naive and seductive. Florals and woods. Such an interesting combo which makes me think of Serge Lutens's  "Féminité du bois". They are not the same thing (because SL's perfumes are more than scents, they are works of art), but  it represents the idea encapsulated in the title: the earthy, masculine nature seen through feminity. 
Comme une Evidence is a timeless perfume, both classy and seductive. Just like the title, its woman should be an appeareance, but without being vulgar. She stands up in the crowd, morphing through it as an atemporal goddess.

Being such a clean, floral, soapy-like scent, it works perfect during daytime and I find it a safe option for those who work in an office, because it lays so lighly on the skin.
