Star rating: 5 stars–outstanding/potential classic, 4 stars–very good, 3 stars–adequate, 2 stars–disappointing, 1 star–poor.

Victoire Gobin-Daudé launched her own line in 2002, which is comprised of five scents: Biche Dans L’Absinthe, Jardins Ottomans, Sève Exquise, Sous Le Buis, and Nuit au Désert. Appropriately named, Jardins Ottomans is a Mediterranean garden in the morning when the sun begins to warm up the earth, yet the remnants of morning mist still persist in the dark corners of the garden. The opening notes are of refreshing and effervescent petitgrain and bitter lemon peel. As sun rays dispel the fog, patchouli warms up the champagne like top notes lending its unique dry-wet quality. A pleasant sweetness blooms under the undulating patchouli note and grows in volume while citrus facet deepens and assumes a flowery quality. The overall effect is a lacy orange blossom with a sweet citrus twist veiled by patchouli richness.

Update: The line has been discontinued.
