I have made this base a few weeks ago after collecting all the necessary ingredients, I forgot to review it here..so here it is; Very opulent, bright and fresh base that I really are implementing next time for your Egoïste formula soon because the last time I made this formula I’ve used mandarin super red from Hermitage oils..and non of your other bases except the Cuir leather base and Dianthine base… the rest were substitutes like Rose Wardia and regular Neroli.
