    Aldehyde 44 by Le Labo

    All aldehydes in the opening: white flowers and fizzy aldehydes, but without the powderiness usually associated. Gets a musky note fairly quick and a woody drydown. I don't know how unisex this really is but I do like it. Too bad it's only available in Dallas, which will certainly limit its appeal for most

    Chypre Rouge by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    A rare mis-step from one of the most innovative and IMO best houses out there. Starts off with a bright hit that reminds me of Framboise, joined by thyme and moss. Just doesn't do it for me and from what I've read, I'm not the only one.

    Mandarine Mandarin by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    Brilliant- for me everything that Chypre Rouge should have been and wasn't (it's development is very similar). Opens with a bright splash very much like ripping into a fresh Satsuma, then is softened by immortelle and spices and sweet candied peel. Too bad it's not available here

    Tubéreuse Criminelle by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    I don't know if a guy could pull off this one- the Tuberose is quite ripe in the drydown. And you'd have to be a very, er, singular type of girl to pull off the opening- a fire at a tire plant being fed by Vicks Va-Po-Rub. It's brilliant, and in it's way beautiful, but more performance art than perfume.

    Yes, I'd still wear it!
