    Default Design Attitude Sublime Essence Mixte, pretentious name, great fragrance.

    Does Catherine Memmi's DASEM qualify as having the longest name in fragrance history?
    Tried it today, a deep blend of vanilla, nutmeg and lemon - does it sound like Cacharel pour Homme? Anyone out there know who its creator is? To me it has that "would almost be better as a room spray or candle" signature of Olivia Giacobetti.

    Where did you smell this Ruggles?

    All I could find was a picture of a fragrance called Design Attitude (EdP and EdT) I posted below



    Is Design Attitude Sublime Essence Mixte the 'parfum' version of DA, or perhaps a different formulation? Did the bottle look like the above?

    UPDATE:

    Duh, I just saw it in the Basenotes Directory: http://www.basenotes.net/ID26124960.html

    Different bottle

    London Pharmacy on 8th Avenue and 22 Street. There's also a Catherine Memmi shop on Greene Street in Soho. I think I'm going to have to buy a bottle of this one, it does the bergamot over nutmeg and vanilla thing with lots of panache!

    Thinking of going down to Greene Street tomorrow to try this one out. Any further thoughts on Memmi Attitude H (homme, ie, for men)?

    Mixte is a SILLAGE monster! Be careful with the application or it can be cloying.

    They're both extremely high quality, rich, bergamot dominated fragrances. Well, priced and great packaging, too. Memmi also does a huge line of body, bath and candles. Quality, all the way. The guy who works in the shop, Florent, is very pleasant. The Mixte / Unisex version is a blend of the masculine and the feminine fragrances.

    You also need to try SAUGE interior perfume from this line, it is amazing. Designed for both personal or ambience use. There is Cucumber, and Mint Pepper that I also tried. The SAUGE is beautiful. This line is really amazing stuff. e
