The Constantines' love of using heady naturals comes to the fore in this highlight from last year's mixed bag of scents under the collective name Volume 2. A compelling tale of dark, lethal passions raging beneath an inscrutable surface, Sikkim Girls overflows with a concoction of tuberose, frangipani, jasmine, rose and vanilla, darkened by opaque woods and made powdery by orange blossom-like materials. Towards the end, it threatens to unravel, but by and large, it's a convincing attempt to bring Guerlain's Nahema and Tauer's Le Maroc Pour Elle together in one scent. Wear it, and watch the world slip into sensual slow motion, like a scene from In The Mood For Love.
