This is one of the most exquisite perfume bottles that I have ever seen. It reminds me of the beautiful marble Neoclassical Paulina Borghese as Venus Victrix sculpture by Canova, where she is shown reclining with an air of regal elegance. She was Napoleon's sister, so she had every right to be regal and elegant. If the beautiful bottle alone is not enough to entice you to desire Peche Cardinal, then the delicate peach, coconut, lily, and musc scent should convince you. The name Cardinal Sin isn't bad either.
