    Private Collection - Un Crime Exotique by Parfumerie Generale

    Private Collection Un Crime Exotique by Parfumerie Generale

    This name alone creates a sense of..
    Heightened DRAMA.....
    something will happen or is about to happen
    and your in the middle of it .

    Intrigued and lured by its Old Hollywood Film Noire name
    I ventured to sample it ....

    might have been a better suited name ....

    Allow me to set the film up....
    The Decadence of the French living in Vietnam and the exploitive evils of Colonialism....
    A exotic place all Steamy and Humid!
    Languorous visits to hidden
    Mandarin "OPIUM DENS"...
    All the while you are floating on a "JUNK" on tranquil waters.....
    When suddenly you are awakened by the rude shots of a gun....
    You feel the wetness of liquid on your chest. the OPIUM has dulled your sense of pain ....
    Is it blood ? NO!
    The smell of fragrance fills the air ...
    Your favorite crystal decanter lies on the floor shattered....
    You smile ...
    having cheated death one more time ... you return to your revelry.

    My review:
    I really like this Spiced Tea Infusion scent.

    The fragrance is so heady with GINGER and Spice... predominantly Saigon Cinnamon.
    Perhaps this mysterious sounding ingredient ..called
    which in CHINA is infused with green or black tea leaves, to create a scented tea called guì huā chá (OSMANTHUS TEA)
    this might create the "CRIME EXOTIQUE"
    in this Potent,Intoxicating and Long Lasting Fragrance....

    A 50ml bottle for 100.00 bucks
    not bad ...
    I'll add it to my Ever Expanding Fragrance Wishlist
