    Sexy Angelic by Honoré de Prés

    I bought this quite cheaply off eBay, and I have to say I quite like it!

    It's a dry almond, licorice fragrance that is incredibly rich but also incredibly light and ethereal. Supposedly the scent is based on the French delicacy Calissons, which are almond paste sweets coated in royal icing. You would think that this would mean the fragrance is sweet, which it is, but almost as a 'dry' sweetness if that makes sense. Imagine sticking your nose into a bag of icing sugar.

    Whilst this is a female fragrance, and surprisingly given its title and inspiration - I find this to be easily wearable and enjoyable.

    The one complaint is that is really doesn't last that long at all - but I don't think of it like that. For the price I paid for it (not that much) I use it as a tonic spray, applying liberally.

    Definitely an excellent scent for Men and Women, just don't pay full price for it.

    Idole de Lubin by Lubin

    This is really good stuff. I was a bit surprised at first because I thought I'd picked up my sample of Le Vetiver - which this definitely isn't!

    A lovely warm, rummy, discreet scent. Got to get a bottle of this.
