Coeur de Vétiver Sacré by L'Artisan Parfumeur

I just can't get out of my mind the fact that CDVS shares, more or less, the same structure with Egoiste before the reformulation. It feels that is trying really hard to be a good perfume, and it's the trying hard thing which makes it just common and forgettable. It might grab you a bit with it's opening, which is a quiter good one, but after that it's all been done and said before. And the longetivity is exceptionally poor...
If you really want to give a try to L' Artisan Parfumeur, try La nuit de Tubereuse, Timbuktu, or the wonderfully twisted and masterfully executed Dzing!. And you will definitely understand the difference between trying hard and trying too hard.

L'Agent by Agent Provocateur

Beautiful, beautiful perfume. I rather prefer that one than the original Agent, it's more dark, more daring, more mysterious, it's rich and I love the drydown. I can't really tell if it's a strictly woman's scent, it feels more of a scent that can be really versatile and work well on both sexes. It feels more like you can wear that one and feel that huge satisfaction coming over. Radiant and unbelievably well done.
