    Gris Clair by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    Crackling Lavender!

    The early medicinal lavender note disappears quite quickly on me. Then its burning all the way (like dust getting hot on a rarely used heater) until finally some faint amberish ashes are all that is left. (This line canít leave the amber alone can it?) For a fresher whiff of the Highlands, Lutensí other take on lavender Encens et Lavande would be a better bet.
    Gris Clair is sweet, smoky and interesting like a late Summer Scottish bonfire, but not that long lasting and not for me.

    Could you wear it with a hangover? Probably not, it would remind you of last nightís burning ashtray!
