Maitresse by Agent Provocateur opens with strong and powerful white floral aromas, just like the most exclusive and lushest white bouquet you have ever smelled. The freshness of the lotus is perfectly balanced with the warm, creamy ylang ylang. Lavish blend, very smooth and sophisticated. Decadent, luxurious and expensive, but in a very subtle way. In its heart osmanthus brings in slightly spicy, tea-like undertone and warmth to the composition. The scent is further heated up by the base notes, creating a very feminine and lady-like delicate mixture of white suede, musk, cedar and amber. It is and very warm. That velvety piquant, almost leathery accord makes this perfume the Agent Provocateur it is. Slightly insolent and sassy Maitresse, but very strong, flamboyant and elegant at the same time - that is what the Agent Provocateur Maitresse lady is all about.
