Caron Parfum Sacre is not for everyone. It has a balmy note to it that I love, which is sharp and antiseptic to some. I detect a very faint oiliness, or mechanical grease, like the scent of a car repair shop on a hot day! And it's appealing. Then the transition into the incense-in-church vibe is nice along with the rose garden drydown. You might like brighter Caron florals, like those found in fleurs de rocaille edp. That one is clear and crisp in comparison to Sacre, I think. Kind of like Jean Patou Joy's cute, bubbly daughter.
