    Shocking by Elsa Schiaparelli

    The only thing "shocking" about this is how shockingly awful it is. It has dusty musty notes of rose and incense, overlaid by a cloying scent of dark honey which gets to the back of my throat and just sticks there. Another way to understand Shocking is that it smells like the closet of a spinster great aunt where she saved every rose corsage and honey jar that came her way. After 10 minutes of wearing Shocking, it is clear that this is a scrubber (and gargler) par excellence. Ugh!
