hmmmm.. highly dubious reading the new 'niche' perfumes from molton brown. are they trying to get on the bandwagon like everybody else and charge us an arm and a leg? everybody's doing 'exclusive', 'prive', 'collection' this and that, to justify the hike in prices. i think this coming from molton brown is quite ironic and possibly hysterical, stick to hair products and make up, that's what i say.
ps still a snob
i will, haven't received it yet. i have started a thread about blind buying knize ten and received a lot of input, also a couple of interesting suggestions. if you like leather but stay on the feminine side, try piver's cuir de russie, also parfumerie generale's cuir d'iris.
ps molton brown?? really?? i thought they only do shower gels, shampoos, etc. or maybe i'm too much of a snob
i just blind bought knize ten (to go with my leather fascination). that will be interesting!
haha. thanks for the 'generosity'. i am wearing it right now and can't make my mind up which one i like more (however, they're very different). for the time being i am inclining toward cuir the russie but i'll have to give sycomore a few more days.
thank you. i have to say, the more i wore it the sweeter it became (i'll let you in on a little secret, today was the first time i've put it on) and also a bit soapy, well, like almost all chanel fragrances. so i do admit that i was a bit hasty in my judgement and comment but really, for the first 2hrs it was like, wow, it cannot get any more leathery and smoky than this! not sure if it's the weather, it's a damp, warm-ish day in london so maybe that doesn't help, also, it might be more wearable in the evening. i think i'll stick with sycomore and antaeus (from chanel that is) and give cuir de russie a break for the time being.
ps i still believe its quite masculine and most women wouldn't be able to 'pull it off' but seeing that you're a brunette, you just might!
