Long Courrier sees Pierre Guillaume back on familiar territory with his signature chocolate orange over pale woods chord (Cadjméré, Daimiris, etc). This time, the gourmand quality is amped up with with plenty of vanillin and contrasted with an aldehydic, ozonic-watery note of trimethyl undecylenic aldehyde.
The combination of edible and aquatic works to destabalising effect, threatening to push the composition over from novel to gimmick.
Longevity is so-so.
