  1. I love this scent! it’s top 5 Alkemia for me 🙂 it reminds me a bit of Kenzo Amour but maybe not as powdery. It’s sweet, heavenly, comfort in a bottle, very romantic smelling to me. Highly recommend if you are a fan of tuberose or gourmands. I have the ultime, but even the regular formula is very powerful, it lasts on my skin all day and has quite noticible/powerful silage for an oil

  2. I just received this so I’ll have to let this age longer and try it again- but immediately on it smells extremely similar to “Hot couture” by Givenchy which is a scent I’m very familiar with as my sister loved and wore it all the time and I have a big bottle of it myself (I bought during my Idk what I’m doing, I’ll just copy-sister phase). It’s toned down- not as in your face strong or chemical.. Although they don’t really share the same notes the resemblance to me is uncanny.

    Silken tent is beautiful – very sweet and feminine, smells expensive and has a creamy touch to it- It’s like creamy toned down amber and cotton-candy- to turning up a bit more floral- then as it fades out more I smell sweet creamy caramel while keeping the floral notes. Currently the scent fades rather quickly and ends up wearing close to the skin like a lot of Alkemia fragrances (but again, my current sample is new.)

  3. I can’t pick out the individual notes — it’s a scent that is more than the sum of its parts. It’s warm and complex. There’s a gourmand vibe from the angelica and the caramel, a floral vibe, and an amber vibe. Overall, it’s a softly floral gourmand with a richness from the amber. Very elevated and well blended. Bought a full size.

  4. I think “jasmine scented rice pudding” describes this perfectly. It’s a lovely evening scent but has a little bit of an edge that I wasn’t fond of.

  5. It’s a bone dry white flower, crystallized in a shard of caramel. The amber is elevated and pairs nicely with the caramel, sweetening the papery, pressed florals of yesteryear. It’s very elegant and wispy. I picture the muse for this scent in parched, white muslin.
