Description

Bombay Bling’s exotic and fruity opening has fruit (mango lychee, cassis (a.k.a. black currants)) and a few spices, for a slightly exotic facet. The heart is a bouquet of white flowers: Sambac jasmine (from India), ylang-ylang, tuberose, frangipani blossom and gardenia. The more oriental close combines sandalwood with notes of patchouli, tobacco and vanilla. Perfumer: Bertrand Duchaufour.

    I love the bottle, love the fragrance name and all the contrasting ingredients. This truly sounds like it is a destination fragrance. It should be considered as one.

    Bombay Bling is just great ! Intensely fruity and lush, like an Indian dessert, it expresses well the dichotomy of modern India : on the one hand the underbelly of the big city with the economic growth, on the other the cenotaphs of the Rajputs and the silk saris of tradition. Though complying to the orientalized view of India by the general public, it offers a transparency of execution which is the trademark of its perfumer, Bertrand Duchaufour.
