Bengale Rouge by Papillon at Indigo
It had been two years since Papillon released their last fragrance, Dryad; Liz released her newest offering late last fall to join the existing collection: Bengale Rouge.
This perfume is inspired by one of Liz’s beloved Bengal cats, and takes inspiration from the evocative scent of warm, sun-lit fur.
It has received fab reviews on the perfume blog circuits and our customers.
Papillon is a true artisanal perfumery and when they run out, it takes a while for their perfumes to come back in stock. Liz allows the proper amount of time for them to macerate, and although it is lengthy, it is worth it.
NOTES: Turkish Rose – Indian Sandalwood – Orris Butter – Labdanum – Oakmoss – Tonka – Honey – Vanilla – Benzoin – Sweet Myrrh
50 ml. EdP, 1 ml. spray sample
This is my second bottle of Bengale Rouge since March 2020! It is, imho, simply THE BEST fragrance I have ever worn. The perfect balance of tonka, myrhh and spices. Round, robus and comforting...like wearing a huge cashmere blanket. Liz Moores is a phenomenal talent as she created my personal “Holy Grail” of scent!
Bengale Rouge is a beautiful warm balsamic scent from the oriental vanilla family. I get the honey and sandalwood notes too. A new favorite for me from the outstanding Papillon house.
On me this is mostly myrrh, honey and vanilla.....the rose is just enough there to keep it from veering toward gourmand. There's a little heat in it...makes you want to give people a little half smile and a wink. Y'all control yourselves when wearing this.
One of the year's best releases.
It's a stunner and I'm so grateful to be able to purchase it from someone who cares (here's looking at you, Ann♥️).
