    Féminité du Bois by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    Original Shiseido EDP

    This is a tale of three notes, all dressed in purple attire that show off their perfectly proportioned curves (not unlike the bottle that they reside in), singing a melody that each realize is more important than any solo they could perform.

    Plum, violet and cedar. Each step forward to receive their applause, but quickly step back in line to continue their performance. A melody of balance. Sure, there is a supporting cast - a sprinkle of cinnamon, a dash of cumin. But the melody is all about the purple main players.

    Plum, violet and cedar.

    This one is soft and reflective. It is the mother of a whole series of really good perfumes from S. Lutens. But this is where is all began, and it remains a mother in firm control of her offspring. She rules, and they only follow.
