Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective

Sana Jardin Revolution de la Fleur

8 Comments

WHAT I SMELL:  Revolution de la Fleur opens with a delightful sweetened frangipani that’s evened out with a delicate and subtle rose.  It’s buttery and tropical and feels as if it’s kissed by the sun.  The frangipani has a bit of a candied essence, like that of a hard candied necklace and overall it provides the sensation of an explosion of color which equals pure happiness.  Revolution De La Fleur doesn’t so much develop as bloom.  As it wears, a beautiful ylang-ylang places itself at the center, like the queen of the tropics.  Here the perfume settles, less sweet but complete floral radiance as the scent of the flowers float as if on a breeze in the heat of the afternoon.  In the end, a bit of vanilla keeps the perfume slightly sweet and keeps the flowers (the frangipani, ylang-ylang and what seems to be a tuberose) remaining intact and a light sandalwood provides for just a hint of spice.

Notes from the Sana Jardin website:

Top: Rose, Frangipani
Heart: Neroli, Ylang-Ylang, Jasmine

WHAT IT SMELLS LIKE TO ME:  Tropical happiness.

THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE REVOLUTION DE LA FLEUR:  sun-sweet, tropical, buttery

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT REVOLUTION DE LA FLEUR:  Now Smell This, Persolaise

BOTTOM LINE:  Revolution de la Fleur is a pretty perfume that will delight those who love a good tropical perfume.  But with these heady florals, it’s important to remember that when wearing it, a little goes a long way.  When applied correctly, the perfume is incredibly delightful.  You should also note that Sana Jardin perfumes are all natural.  And for being all natural, this perfume has incredible lasting power.  Oh, and the bottles are simply elegant…always a nice touch as far as I’m concerned.

  2. This sounds very interesting. Frangipani is a favorite floral note and I would love to smell it combined with rose. I will have to try it for sure. Lovely review as always!

    • Hi Ricky, Frangipani a lot of times will not work for me because if used incorrectly, it can be so overwhelming. Here it’s used perfectly combined with the ylang-ylang. The rose is very subtle, so I would not call it a rose perfume. I hope all is well!

  3. This sounds wonderful! For more than a year now, I find I cannot get enough of white and yellow florals, tropicals Florals make me happy; white florals most of all. All natural is great. I have people around me who have problems with perfumes that use too many or certain synthetics. I will definitely try this one. Thank you.

  4. How do you even find these brands?!! 🙂
    If I ever come across it, I’ll try it since it sounds like something I might like despite the”all-natural” part (and the bottle does look good, at least on the photo).

    • I have my sources. You have to be resourceful down in Mexico where perfume is incredibly elusive. Yes, the bottle is very pretty and as far as “all natural” is concerned, I typically don’t care for them. This line is different, although natural, they don’t fade quickly.
