My sophisticated and artistic rebel daughters who also wish to Â*avoid smelling lilke everyone else are fond of many of L'Artisan's fragrances and also Serge Lutens. They also like Marc Jacob's scent for women. Also parfum de Rosine and Diptyques. You can get samples from Saks, Nordstrom or our favorite shop, Aedes de Venustus
(for all but the Marc Jacobs.)
L'Artisan has many scents. Among their favorites are:Mure et Musc
Â*wild blackberry and muskLa Chasse aux Papillons
Â* delicate melody of fresh cut flowers. Tuberose and Linden Blossom with hints of Jasmine and Orange Blossom, rounded with a little white muskThÃ© pour un Ete
Â*Jasmine Tea and Green Tea, white flowers, blended with a hint of Citrus
From Serge Lutens they like:Un Lys
white lily petals disclose a delicious, almost aqueous freshness, sustained by a subtle green note of barely opened leaves. The sensual vanilla-musk infusion gives Un Lys a subtle, velvety qualityFleurs d'Oranger
Orange blossoms mingle with the essence of tuberose from india, white rose and white jasmin.
Also they like Parfum de Rosine's scents:Pouserrie de Rose
is especially lovely: a deep and engaging rose fragrance creating the impression of warmth and comfort with basenotes of sandalwood, cedar, opoponax, amber and musk, heart notes of rose frankincense, tea and cinnamon and head notes of prunes, apricots and ylang ylang.
And from Diptyques:L'Ombres dans l'Eau
Â* Â*Blackcurrant leaves and bulgarian roses. The fresh scent of a riverside garden. Light, lingering, haunting.Dam Tao
Â* bewitching and sensous scent dedicated to sandalwood, the most coveted of all sacred woods. The oriental Goa sandalwood chosen in this Eau de Toilette is pure, creamy and smooth.
