    Hi Everyone! for my first thread I would like to pose a question. Sacre by Caron. I so want to like this one. I am a fan of deep and luxurious drags and own several, including Sacre but for some reason I just cannot warm to it. I need some inspiration here. If you love it, hate it or can barely tolerate it I would like to know. Thanks guys. Looking forward to your response.

    Caron Parfum Sacre is not for everyone. It has a balmy note to it that I love, which is sharp and antiseptic to some. I detect a very faint oiliness, or mechanical grease,  like the scent of a car repair shop on a hot day! And it's appealing. Then the transition into the incense-in-church vibe is nice along with the rose garden drydown. You might like brighter Caron florals, like those found in fleurs de rocaille edp. That one is clear and crisp in comparison to Sacre, I think. Kind of like Jean Patou Joy's cute, bubbly daughter.

    My wife used to wear this I remember and liked it. Doesn't wear it anymore.

    Thanks Nell and Hednic.  It does have that kind of mineral smell doesn't it.   I got a "just opened pencil case" aroma and I was hoping that fades out to reveal an incense rose or something... Im going to give it one more try while its still cold here. I don't think its a 'Brisbane Summer' fragrance .... Thanks again!

    I love it, I have the older version so not sure what the newer one is like.

     

    Dusty roses and incense, spicy but understated.

    Hahaha Nell,

    I love COLD.  Means I can wear my Mitsuko and Coco and Zen without feeling overwhelmed  by fumes. I wore Sacre to bed last night and Im liking the next day rosy muskiness. I am interested to know - what is your all time favourite Florida Summer spritz? With my lineup, I find Im reaching for the L'occitane Eau des 4 Reines or Elie Saab all the time.  Thanx for replying! vrolijk_26.gif

    I haven't tried those two yet, but they sound nice! When the temperature climbs I favor vintage Diorella EDT, Chanel Cristalle EDT and VS Pink body spray.
