Just bought a new bottle of L'Anarchiste from Parfum1 for really cheap. I've worn it before, and it's a nice scent that will work well in the Fall but the packaging is amazing. The box has a slid-out coffin with some Dada writings from Antonin Artaud in French. I've been into Artaud for many years as well as Baudelaire and had comtemplated learning French just to read them in their original language so that's a pleasant surprise. Can't remember the last time I was impressed with just the box. The bottle is striking and unique too. Think it's supposed to be a copper gas tank, perfect for throwing Molotov cocktails at the next riot. Isn't it odd that Caron didn't use their standard bottle shape for it? I just wish the juice impressed me as much as the packing does. Something feels missing in it. Or maybe I want it to be more intense and strange. The cloves and musk could be stronger for my taste but alas.
