Cabotine by Gres is a youthful offering from this brand. It has an enthusiasm and lightness that is a bit nostalgic since it debuted in 1990. While Cabotine lives up to its name, it is also a complex fragrance with a busy blend that took an artistic hand to ensure it doesn't come off as too heavy. The profile is bright and fresh.
Fragrance Family: Floral
Scent Type: Sweet, bright
Notes: Gres Cabotine perfume has a lot going on. Despite the busy fragrance profile, it is very much a floral perfume with a slight fruity slant. The top notes feature orange blossom, coriander, black currant, cassia, plum, peach and tangerine. The middle notes bring in more florals with rose, iris, freesia, ylang-ylang, jasmine, tuberose, hyacinth, violet, heliotrope and carnation, but it also has a slight surprise of a touch of ginger. The base notes bring in the earthiness and richness needed to prevent this fragrance from becoming too sweet. Users will notice a mix of vetiver, civet, musk, sandalwood, cedar, amber and tonka bean. Black currant also makes another appearance, along with a touch of vanilla to round everything out.
Suggested Use: For long-lasting fragrance that you can carry throughout the day and to minimize the need for reapplying, focus on your pulse points behind your ears, at the base of your neck and on your wrists as well as warmer areas of the body, such as behind the knees and inside the elbow. These are the best places to apply your fragrance since the scent intensifies by the warmth of your body.
