This is one of my two favourite citrus scents - the other is Les Nuits d'Hadrian by Annick Goutal. Maharanih is light and feminine, but has serious weight because of its layered complexity.

 A non-sweet orange is the top note which is short-lived, like all citrus notes. Then it changes into a wonderfully elegant and soft mix of rose and incense, but still with a dry, not sweet, orange backdrop.

My mind's eye sees a brightly hued silk sari, sparkling with gold threads and  fluttering in a soft breeze, when I spray Maharanih on my neck and wrists. So feminine, and sophisticated.

And a perfect summer fragrance.
