    First I would like to change the rules for this one, to make it more of a chalenge. No googling, please.
    Or rather - you can, if you are at your wit's end.

    The lucky winner will get a decant of our mystery perfume.
    Notes are as follows:

    Rose, cumin, vetiver, pepper, coriander, and civet.

    No hints yet.

    My guess is Rose Poivree or Cabotine.
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    Sorry, Sophi, but no.
    Your guess is a good guess - L'Origan (Coty) is also a civet-y old school one. I had a mini of it, but it is all used up. Great, great perfume!

    Taken from Luckysecnt official page :Rose Poivree
    Eau de toilette
    by The Different Company
    The Scoop
    It takes over one hundred pounds of precious Damascus rose petals to produce just one bottle of Rose Poivrée. A royal scent from exotic lands, this decadent essence mixes pure rose with a devilish pepper and spice, a combination fit for kings, queens and all who seek the divine (with a touch of naughty) in fragrance. The true beauty of Rose Poivrée is its amazing turns—from the tangle of dark, luscious rose petals to the fiery spice-meets-green evolution, it never fails to captivate and enchant. A rare, costly and beautiful gem for the wild sensualists among you.
    Rose Poivree Notes
    Damascus rose, rose bay, pepper, coriander, vetiver, civet

    ***No cumm(ar)in in there

    Sophi, I read reviews here on BN.

    http://www.basenotes.net/ID26121826.html

    There must be cumin in it - why can I and others smell it?
    But you are right, the cumin isn't mentioned on Different Company's website either.

    http://www.thedifferentcompany.com/f...duct_info.html

    My bottle is from 2000 - has it been reformulated? And why do some people get citrus notes? (I don't!)
    You know what? I will send you a decant of it. Then you can smell it and tell which notes you are getting.
    Fair enough?

    Sophi - you are getting a decant anyway. This is such a love-hate scent, and it's a must-try. Some days I cannot bear it; it's so overwhelming. On other days, when I stop analyzing and overthinking, it's THE rose. And the civet. G-zus, this is a civet bomb; really decadent and unlike anything else out there. I would like to know how *you* perceive this one. If you hate it the first time - don't give up. Try it on another day.
    L'Origan may blush in comparison; you really have to try it for yourself because it's near impossible to explain it with mere words.

    OK, new one: you can google it if you are impatient, frustrated, angry and so on.

    Comme une Evidence (both Homme and Elle) is famous for its violet leaf note -- raspy-fuzzy-wet dark green feeling perceived as slightly rotten seaweed by many, in my yesterday's S'n'S thread I am referring to Comme une Evidence as a common denominator and widely known scent utilizing this note. If it is what you mean, sophi?

    Whtever it is, please let kewart know -- she has been looking for her A New Day Dawns for a couple of months now and this fragrance in your mini contains the exact same set of notes as the one she wants.

    I guess you have won. I have just checked the YR's site and they do not show "violet leaf" note any more. I am not sure if it has been reformulated or not, because the original Comme une Evidence was unique because of it.

    Sophi, I went through 2 bottles of the original Comme une Evidence back in 2004-2005 and that's why I know about the presence of that "fuzzy raspy dark green note" I was talking about.

    It would be interesting to compare the new one with what they have got now.

    That's the set of notes for A New Day Dawns -- without the violet leaf:

    Default Re: Guess the fragrance from the notes and win a little of it. Part Three

    Major confusion time - I am sorry. Yes, Sophi did indeed tell me yesterday that she doesn't want a mini of "Comme Une Evidence", so that still stands. I thought that she had changed her mind...
    Twolf: would you be kind and PM me your adress, so that I can mail it to *you*?
    Congratulations! It's a lovely scent; as so many of the YR line.
