I recently decided to pull out a few fragrances that didn't initially impress me, and some have really grown on me! The one I chose today is Lanvin's Rumeur
, a breezy and very
pretty floral-woody musk. It's aldehydic and sparkly with graceful florals including rose and magnolia, and super-soapy squeaky clean musks....it actually has a bit of a dryer sheet accord, but it's much
nicer than that sounds. And its sillage and longevity are surprisingly remarkable. I would probably wear this a lot in the next couple of months if I didn't have so many other summertime beauties competing for attention (one of the biggest dilemmas of the perfume collector, right?!)...but I'm certainly giving it more consideration now, and I'm sure it'll win out a few times.Rumeur
was created by Francis Kurkdjian
in 2006....re-created actually, but it doesn't even pretend to have anything in common with the original from 1934.
Top notes - aldehydes, magnolia
Middle notes - plum, mock orange, rose, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley
Bottom notes - amber, patchouli, musks
Y'all have a great day!
