    Default New: Jean Patou "Sira des Indes".

    The house of Jean Patou (now P&G) will launch in March (in France first) a new fragrance called "Sira des Indes". It's based on the indian champaca flower.



    Family: Foody-oriental.

    Top: banana, bergamot, pear, pink berries and cardamom.
    Heart: champaca lower.
    Base: musk, amber, vanilla and sandalwood.

    Source: www.cosmeticnews.com

    The article doesn't say but the fragrance was probably composed by in-house parfumer Jean Michel Duriez, who also creates personal signature fragrances for the house.

    Thanks for telling us!

    This one sounds interesting, I think.
    Banana can`t possibly be a very common note in frags ???

    In deed, but I think Jean Michel Duriez already used banana in Enjoy.

    I finally know what Sira means: Jean Michel Duriez is a friend of Paris' star baker and chocolatier Pierre Hermé (He invented the famous Ispahan dessert: a rose maccaroon filled with raspberries). Pierre Hermé helped Duriez discover desserts from India, one of them is Seera (sira) which inspired the perfume.

    Thanks for the heads up. I don't know what to think yet. The skeptic in me feels the great Patou days are gone- but you never know. I will of course sample!
    Scent is such a lovely, simple pleasure!

    I do have to say that I wish they'd stop using the Joy bottle and come up with something different.

    I can't wait to try this, but I can't imagine a perfume that is India-related not having jasmine in it!

    I smelled this one the other night at Nordstrom. It was a pleasant fruity floral.
    Not too light, not too heavy. The bottle, in combination with the red liquid was
    quite attractive.

    Now, if only Patou would bring out something new for men, or [barely daring to wish]
    reissue Patou Pour Homme [without changing the formula].

    I like the look and name of this one, but I'm not so sure about "banana, pear, pink berries"??!!

    Must try it anyway, even though I didn't like EnJOY.

    Regarding bananas:

    In a recent news clip, I heard that subjects of a study were exposed (don't know the extent of that "exposure&quot to the scent of bananas for so many days or weeks, and it was concluded that banana scent reduces appetite as all or most of the subjects lost a measurable amount of body weight. If any of this can be substantiated, you know there are going to be bunches of banana-based frags hitting the market. Urgh ... I'm losing my appetite already.

    I will use my CSP Vanille Banane to try to get into my bikini from last year.
