here we go...thanks cacio, jujy54 and cestrum nocturnum:Boxeuses
I get deep and dark plum, a beautiful hint of resin. Where the heck is the leather? Not on my skin, apparently.
It is still a handsome fragrance, however, which has the signature Lutens/Sheldrake darkness without feeling like you could not wear it in public. Adaptable. Unisex.Visa
Yummy YUM. I really need to explore the Piguet house more. I have vintage Fracas (in spades and I rarely wear it because it's just so overtly bombastic.
Visa is understated, classy, yet rich in the fruit and spice. I don't get the Angel comparison oft made- it's not overtly bombastic enough for that
Plus no chocolate note.
This is wearable anywhere by anyone.
I do see a similarity to two fruity/spicy faves I have- Mauboussin, which is drier, and Silences Purple, which is sweeter. I may need to get a bottle of this at the LV Meet-up.Ajaq Malik Al Atoor
Warm cigarette ash, followed by cold cigarette ash.
Waiting for the fruit....waiting. While waiting, I will say I have never spontaneously gesticulated with both hands waving noooooo in front of me in reaction to sniffing something. That just happened on the second sniff.
Still waiting for the fruit. Nope, it's a scrubber.
you had pretty much the same reaction for diferent reasons.Ajaq Al Maawiya
i will not hold it against Al Maawiya that it is from the same house as the previous sample. OK. What a relief...
Very pleasant green and ripe citrus, a touch of white floral and then it stayed in a holding pattern.... It could be something one comes across at a health food store or street fair. Very pleasant scent, but not really a perfume, either. Too bad, has potential.HdP 1969
I have a travel size of this in my collection so I won't spend much time on this. An acidic
peach top quickly morphs into cocoa and patchouli / musk on my skin. It's really fun!Jacomo Paradox
I really like this house overall but Paradox smells super synthetic & slightly medicinal to my nose, like a throat lozenge. Jujy said lemon drop- I can agree with that.
That honey note is so screechy, it doesn't remotely resemble real honey.
This is neither refreshing, nor soothing- an all around late 20th century mall smell for men who are afraid of really exploring scents.

Juicy Juicy fruit. The kind of ripe fruit that drips all over your hands and makes you sticky when you eat it. How do they do that?? Excellent work.Alexandra de Markoff No Regrets
SHRILL in the opening and the white florals remain shrill through the mid-phase, to my nose. I rather like the little bit of booziness in it, but that did not temper the overall effect into smoothness enough for me to feel comfortable with it.
I looked this up and cannot believe this was only created in 1994- it seriously seems much older in style than that. Definitely has quality ingredients but this one has way too much going on for me to appreciate it. It is a scent which would wear me, instead of the other way around.Mollie Parnis
- Perfumed Lady and following sniffers may not get to try this. Seriously, I understand why this scent haunted jujy54 and she had to hunt it down like a dog.
It has the most beautiful realistic delicate peach note !!! Seriously terrific stuff.
That's all folks.
I will get the package off to Perfumed Lady in the next two or 3 days, adding Bouche Baie by Nez a Nez..
