Eau de Parfum
by Ys Uzac
Like most scents by Ys.Uzac, Monodie is named after music: the term designates a “solo voice singing a melodic part, usually with considerable ornamentation, over a rhythmically independent bass line”, or so Wikipedia tells us. An apt name for a high-spirited play on mirabelle spirit – mirabelle being a small yellow plum, whose taste is less tart than other plums, with a jammy undertone picked up by the drop of caramel in the base notes.
A splash of summery colors adorn this sunny melody, the pink grapefruit and red rose contrasting with the tart green of rhubarb and the deeper resinous tones of galbanum.
Though Monodie is meant for women, there’s nothing to say its bracing, sparkling notes couldn’t tickle a man, if he can carry a tune. You know how to whistle, don’t you?
