Sira des Indes is another sample given to me by my daughter who wasn't keen on the perfume that she had ordered from My Perfume Samples.
Described as "Oriental woody fragrance for women. Top notes are banana, pear, bergamot, cardamon and pink pepper. Middle notes are champaca, orange blossom, plum and milk, Base notes are sandalwood, amber, musk and vanilla."
When I first applied this perfume, it had a pungent note about it. I couldn't pinpoint what it was, but I wasn't a fan. Thankfully, this quickly disappeared as it softened to a very creamy, powdery fragrance. The banana and pear are noticeable but are not too prominent, blending softly. I find that the perfume is quite close to the skin.
I was quite surprised that being an oriental that it is so subtle. Sira des Indes is nice, not a full size must-have, as yet, but I will continue to use the sample, I seem to like it the more I wear it.
