    Fumerie Turque by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    With an opening of lovely pipe tobacco (fresh, not smoky) that is quickly followed by a more bitter smoky smell, this is intriguing and very odd. The incense and not-too-sweet honey soon follows and is intoxicating...tempered with the bitter smoke, and leather... and yes, a little rose. As NillaGoon pointed out, the scent a few inches from the skin is much different from close up... the ash/smoke is more prevalent close. FT's longevity is good on my skin, and the base of amber and honey keeps me sniffing the back of my hand for hours. There's a hint of sex to this one, particularly in the middle, that put me in a slightly altered state. The leather that showed up as the top notes faded and the middle notes rose persists to the base. Woke up with hints of FT on my skin this morning, wanting to try this one for mystery at the office tomorrow.
