Beautiful, respectable rose

I catch lemon and rose jam in this beautiful concoction. At one point, it smells precisely like Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin, but once the lemon kicks in, it softens and the jasmine comes forward to play with the rosie jamminess. Sillage is going to be minimal after the 1st hour, becomes a definite skin scent. Very nice, but I'm not sure it's worth the price when it's so similar to SL LFDB whose price is about half if you find a good bargain.

Pros: sweet with a touch of citrus
Cons: not too long lasting"

This is an interesting perfume house. I like their bold yet likeable scents, especially their linden Debut and their lively green floral Amoureuse. This perfume ranks lower on my scale because it is a fairly simple, realistic rose, and that’s been done before by Serge Lutens Sa Majaste la Rose, Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie, and even the less beautiful Perfumers Workshop Tea Rose. Still, Coup de Foudre is worth mentioning as a dry, citrus rose without honey, without vanilla, without powder. It is light, and it strives for that “botanical” realism. Even rose absolute (the natural substance) is “wetter” and more complex than this perfume. It is interesting but a little too stripped down for my taste.

l tried this one way back in October 2010, but l've only just noticed it has finally been added to the directory! l long since gave away my sample, so, working from my notes, this is how l remember it.
This opens with a lemony rose, reminiscent of Sheer Stella, the 2008 version. The rose becomes deeper & more velvety, until 45 minutes in there's an odd note which l can only describe as sweat! l can only smell it when sniffing up close, but it's enough to put me off, & l don't really notice the base notes. lt lasts around 8 hours on me.
This is probably a skin chemistry thing, & there are other rose fragrances l enjoy much more, so l'm happy to pass on this one.
