Mmmm... Interesting description.
I have to admit that rippaman77 has a point. I'm wearing it right now, after popping into House of Fraser during my lunch break. The first thing that came to mind, as I smelt the top notes, was Bois Farine. I wouldn't say it smelt exactly like this masterpiece but it wasn't far off. Several minutes later, other notes came into play (but the Bois Farine association remained). An hour later, it began to smell slightly synthetic but still quite pleasant. Three hours later and it's beginning to get on my nerves (smelling very much like bug spray). I've never been a YSL fan and this one isn't going to make me change my mind, Im afraid.
Bvlgari Black is okay but the rubber notes aren't too my liking. Furthermore, its sillage and longevity is quite poor (but that's Bvlgari for you).
Lolita Lempicka is the one I'd go for. I was served, yesterday, by a very down-to-earth SA. After having this on my arm for at least 10 minutes, she proceeded to check how it was developing on my skin. After sniffing, her first reaction was, 'Wow!' (and she wasn't BSing me - I can usually spot this straight away). It seems that this one works wonderfully with my skin chemistry (and even I was really impressed). Too sweet? Yeah, maybe, but I like to be considered edible to the 'ladies' (and not like burnt rubber or bug spray).
