Frangrance arrived in a very short time. Was wrapped in a beautiful package. I will certainly consider FragranceX.com again when looking for this type of gift.

        Comments about Balmya By Pierre Balmain:

        The notes sound good on paper, but the scent itself is a mess. I like Balmain's fragrances, but this one is... It smells cheap, overpowering, stale, and makes me uncomfortable. Not for me.

            Comments about Balmya By Pierre Balmain:

            ​I don't like most 'mainstream' perfumes because when they dry down there's a disappointing 'sameness' amongst most of them--to 'my' nose. I understand the basic principles in the formulation of 'personal fragrance'--e.g., Top, Middle, and Base notes--the latter being the most lingering--what you're left with after the stuff has been mingling w/your chemistry after a period of time.

            A lot of fragrances are formulated using either synthetic or 'nature identical' components and 'Musk' is one of the most popular. I can believe that it's possible to have an artificial scent component that truly DOES smell like what it's imitating, but to me, most synthetics smell like what they are: fake. So many fragrances use some form of musk that that's the dominant aroma--and to my nose it emerges pretty quickly, which accounts for the degree of similarity among a large number of 'popular' scents, and my distaste for them. So you've got a lot of 'choices' that all end up smelling like some configuration of Musk along w/misc other 'cheap' aromas. [Again, please keep in mind that I'm talking about the olfactory life of 'my' nose!].

            Fast forward re *Balmya*: to my nose it doesn't dry down to smell like everything else--it has and retains its own identity/individuality. There's a 'timeless/classic' aspect to this scent which is part of what makes a fragrance even worth considering; it's also subtle, but potent and distinctive--such as could be said about Violets; rather than have a musky aftermath, Balmya is more spicy/woody, but distinctly Feminine.

            I would definitely purchase a larger size of this product, but give it a '4' rather than a '5' because it's lacking an indefinable property that would make it absolute perfection to me; I'd actually give it a '4.75' if I could :)

              This is a well constructed coffee fragrance. The base notes cuddle you in a cashmere shawl which smells like iris, sandalwood and milky coffee.
