From the concoction of notes advertised you would think this was an awful sweet mixture of fruit. What I get is a little musk and a little fruit. It is quietly beautiful. And very sexy, slighty dirty and salty. I'm glad I own a bottle. Perfume Posse has an excellent review of it.
I was beginning to despair with the Serge Luten range but Fumerie Turque restores my hope. After sampling Ambre Sultan this is a welcome relief. Fumerie Turque is smoky (and yes with suggestion maybe it is a little like an ashtray but i like it and i dont smoke) It is honeyed smokiness. You kinda need the ashy smoke to remind you the world is not all beautiful. It adds contrast and complexity. I want a bottle.
