Notes Gourmandes, Réminiscence

Notes Gourmandes, Réminiscence. Released in 2008, Réminiscence’s Notes Gourmandes collection featured four fragrances, Do Ré, Mi Fa, Sol La, and Si Do.  The four eaux de parfum take their inspiration from gustatory notes, music and Marie Antoinette.  The four fragrances, housed in charming pastel colored flacons with all of the feminine accouterments and allusions to the Marie Antoinette universe.
Do Ré:
Top notes of heliotrope & green fig Heart notes of almond, cedar wood & Javan patchouli Base notes of vanilla, Tonka bean, Siam benzoin & musk.
Mi Fa:
Top notes of marshmallow, bergamot, mandarin & neroli Heart notes of ozone, almond, lavender, rosemary, mint, petitgrain, jasmine, black pepper & sandalwood Base notes of vanilla & musk.

Si Do:

It seems that the Notes Gourmandes collection may have changed since its release in 2008.  On the Réminiscence web site, the collection now contains three eaux de parfum, Héliotrope, Guimauve, and Dragée; however, the original collection seems to be available from a number of web sites.  I found them on LavishChoice,
