First by Van Cleef and Arpels is a premier 30ml fragrance created by the jewellery house. Perfumes, like jewels, enhance feminine beauty and seduction. Like invisible ornaments, scents are simply overwhelming and beautiful. First is a Floral Aldehyde scent, relying on only the prime choice of noble components and white flowers. Luxurious, seductive and mysterious, this fragrance acts as a tribute to femininity. This fragrance opens with gorgeous top notes of aldehyde, raspberry, peach and hyacinth, before leading into a heart of mayrose, carnation, jasmine, orchid, lily of the valley, tuberose and orris. The scent is then rounded off with warm base notes of oakmoss, amber, civet, honey, sandalwood and vetiver.
