    Re: Secretions Magnifique

    Not for me. At first, I was very curious and eager to try it, but after the first wearing, I couldn't handle it. I definitely can't wear it in public, ever!
  2. Re: Serge Lutens: Overhyped if not overrated?

    I simply adore the perfume house and the creative works behind the scents, but it doesn't mean I like every single perfume that the house releases. There're some of the SL fragrances that I hold...

    Re: Smoky, dark fragrances.

    My hands-down smoky and dark fragrance choices are Serge Lutens' Fumerie Turque (smoky tobacco and honey) and Borneo 1834 (dark and dusty cocoa - patchouly. I'd also recommend you By Kilian's Back to...

    Re: Douce Amere different label

    I have exactly the same bottle of Douce Amere, which smells wonderful and lasts about 6-8 hours on my skin.
    If I spray it on my clothes/fabric, the perfume lasts for at least 2 days.

    It's ok.

    Overall, this one is cozy and comfort but just oh...

  10. Re: Recommendation Needed: It's 5AM and just rained in a quite forest.

    Santa Maria Novella's Aqua di Cuba is all about tobacco and I actually detect a hint of citrus in the middlenotes!
  19. Re: Like Obsession or Must - but without civet?

    In my humble memory, Serge Lutens Mandarine Mandarin does ring to my mind of Ck Obsession. Maybe it's because they both share the candied mandrine peel note.

    Beautiful orange blossom with a nice hint of tuberose.
