Sublime by Jean Patou Perfume. Designer Jean Patou gave the world a new option for a bold yet feminine scent when he created Sublime.
As an exotic chypre in a traditionally Asian style, this fragrance works best for outgoing women who want to stand out. Released in 1992, this fragrance features a woody base that supports light top notes of rose, jasmine, coriander, bergamot and tangerine. The citrus and herbal notes keep the florals from overwhelming the senses for office and daytime wear.
Jean Patou is one of my favorite perfumers. Both Joy and Sublime are wonderful scents. I like Sublime a bit more in the winter and Joy in the summertime. Sublime stays well but does not overpower.
