To choose the fragrance that suits you best in a perfume store, start by spraying scents onto test strips. Then try your 2 or 3 favorites on the inside of your wrist. Since its one of the places in yur body where your circulation is the closest to the surface, that will allow the fragrance to develop to its fullest. If you still like the scent by the end of the day, then it's got your name on it!

An elegant, delicately oriental chypre scent
Alliance of patchouli, oak moss, sweet flowers and amber, Chypre d'Orient is part of the house of Molinard’s ‘La fraîcheur’ (“Frenshness”) collection of extra-sparkling fragrances for the home. For spring 2007, the brand’s fragrances flaunt a new, ‘delightfully retro look, as an homage to Art Deco, the golden era of classic perfume’.
Eau de Toilette 3.4 fl. oz.
The retro, Art Deco bottle features spare, clean lines and round, “whiskered” shoulders, like bottles from the 20’s. Garbed with a bronze label, it is topped with a ‘diamond-facetted’ cap, inspired by a vintage creation Baccarat once designed for Molinard.
