Perle de Mousse is a soapy-aldehydic, green floral centred around galbanum and a watery/metallic lily-of-the-valley (hydroxycitronellal, helional etc) ’perle’ note. The composition is given a nice pear-like twist in the top, but the promised moss (mousse) is unfortunately wanting, leaving the perfume without much heft or character.
