    Might as well just start with Secretions Magnifique.....

    My two favorites are the leathers Rien - very dry and Vierges et Toreros - very dirty.

    Their website also offers a sampling program of all 17 fragrances, shipping is a bit expensive though I think
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Jasmin et Cigarette is the best one I've tried, Tom Of Finland is the most wearable, Secretions Magnifique justifiably the most infamous.

    In general, I'm not a big fan of this line. There's something tacky and brash about it, and I don't just mean the names and the ad copy.

    I've tried Eloge du Traitre -- a slightly greener, fresher version of Yatagan (in other words, nice 'n piney, powerful)
    And Antihero is not bad, a very focused and dry lavender.

    While I have tried SM out morbid curiosity, I am not inclined to seek out the others.

    This is very exciting!!!

    I no longer have to go down to Henri Bendel in New York to get my ELDO fix!

    I like Rien, Eloge du Traire, and Antiheros best. Tom of Finland is eminently wearable.

    I am happy to hear they are planning on carrying this line. Up until now you could only get it in the U.S. by ordering directly from the shop in France or by getting the attention of a Henri Bendel sales person to return phone call requests (they don't).

    I've tried many of their fragrance samples and am struck by the incredible combinations of masculine and feminine notes to create interesting results that are sort of gender bending combinations. Nothing else like them anywhere else!

    I've been told that their fragrances are mostly synthetic, but whose are not?

    My favorites of those I've tried are: Jasmine et Cigarette (jasmine and tobacco), Rien (vinyl leather), Rossy de Palma (Pomegranate and Roses), and Je Suis un Homme (eau de cologne / patchouli). But also enjoyed Vierges et Toreros (tuberose / leather). I have bottles of the first three but I have not bothered to analyze them closely enough for reviews.

    A line well worth testing for sure.

    oddly, some fragrances can be viewed via search, but not on the etat page.

    +1 on this one. My favorite from the 7-8 I've tried from this line. It resembles L'air Du Desert Marocain but better IMO.

    Ah boy, you and your pine! You just love that scent, don't you??? Did you tell me you just went to France or somewhere there abouts? I'd love to hear about it sometime!

    I just noticed a typographical error on the Luckyscent front page: http://www.luckyscent.com/

    Look to the very right of the picture, in the column titled 'Just Arrived'...they typed, 'Le Parum est Mort. Vile le parfum!' LOL. Vile indeed.

    I really like Rosse de Palma and Vierges et Toreros. Rossy de Palma is a really nicely executed rose, vierges et Toreros is a very dirty leather and vert strong. If that combo appeals to you. It does to me and I like it quite a bit.
    I've got samples of Rien and Tom of Finland that I'm early in my sampling of but I have good first impressions of both.

    I've tried almost all of them & enjoyed Jasmin et Cigarette & Tom Of Finland but I bought Rossy d'Palma. I love this spicy rose scent. It's one of my absolute favorite rose/incense fragrances. My sister bought Don't Get Me Wrong baby, I don't swallow, which is actually a lovely white floral. You've got to move past the advertizing with these. It's funny, she's a firefighter/emt & works with all men. She got a kick out of the name.
    As always, try before you buy.
