Contradiction is a floral woody musk women’s perfume that was designed in 1998 by perfumer Ann Gottlieb. It has floral, woody, white floral, balsamic, rose, and fresh main accords. Head notes of lily, peony, orchid, lily-of-the-valley, rose, and jasmine open this fragrance, leading to heart notes of eucalyptus, lilac, and blackberry. Base notes of sandalwood, musk, and tonka bean close this bouquet. With moderate longevity and sillage, this scent wearswell on days throughout the year.
