Thread: New-found love!

  1. #1

    Default New-found love!

    I can't believe it's taken me so long to test this fragrance,
    but now that I have I'm hooked!
    It's powerful, very sensual and
    deeply addictive. It hasn't got that many notes, is by a female perfumer and.
    can be found in most department stores over here.
    I am hoarding my small sample like gold dust and looking forward to wearing it
    over Christmas.
    Any idea what I just discovered?

    No idea, but I'm sharing your excitement and looking forward to the revealing of this secret elixir.

    ...or, perhaps Black Cashmere? Does Donna Karan count as a perfumer? I'm trying to think of common female perfumers....perhaps Annick Goutal?

    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    ^^ I thought that too at first, Paris or something, but I see that's already in her wardrobe.

    Hypnotic Poison is a good guess.

    I want to know too!

    And I'm hoping it's not Hypnotic Poison and that it is something I will love too

    Sorry I took so long to get back to you all.
    I had a coughing fit last night and went to bed early
    with a hot lemon and paracetamol drink!
    Libertine got it - it is HYPNOTIC POISON (elixir).
    I just looked it up in The Perfume Guide and LT rates it highly too.
    I must save up for a bottle of the Elixir version of this. It is the perfect
    scent for winter parties.

    Kewart, I wonder how it differs from regular HP since I am fed up with that one.

    Yay! I want to try it, too! (I'm such a lemming). So who is the creator?

    Lilybelle, Annick Menardo is its creator.

    I think I sampled this a while back and it was too food-like for me, but I did recently discover Mauboussin's Histoire d'Eau, which is now among my top 5 or so (it's got fruit, heavy spices, and suede), and it costs very little now.

    Bigsly how does Histoire d'Eau compare to the straight Mauboussin for women?
    I love that one and am interested in the difference between them.
