    Default Re: Dandies take note: Guerlain to release the Arsene Lupin duo

    I tried them both this evening - nothing new to add to what others have already said but . . . first impression, for what it's worth:

    I like the unusual opening of Dandy and it evolves into a very clear leather note. I sprayed my cuff because it seemed light on my wrist, which is just as well - 4 hours later and I can enjoy it on the fabric but it's gone from my wrist. I like it but it seems quite light and airy, close to the skin as Mr.G mentions.

    Voyou seems very, very light and octavians 'unfinished' comment in his review seems pretty apt, frankly. It's not unpleasant but nothing here grabbed me at all. Will try them both some more over the next few days - it takes me three or four wearings at least to get a handle on anything.

    The wood framed bottles do seem amateurish and are a bit uncomfortable to hold.

    Voyou - Take 2 / Oct. 24: I tried a heavier dose at the Guerlain counter today and for the first hour+ the aromatic quality was much more apparent. It took me half an hour then I realised that it was recalling the Amouage Al Andalus Attar, whcih I subsequently confirmed when I got home. (Al Andalus has been compared with Platinum Egoiste by some, BTW, altho Al Andalus and Voyou do not have the slightly metallic synth aspect I find in PE). Four hours later and it is a very pleasant but also very light skin scent, natural but subtle. Starts well but then doesn't really go anywhere, frankly. Not really my style but I can see this being very popular with fans of the more 'aromatic fougere' side of things. Probably the more commercial of the two mainstream wise.

    The Guerlain rep at Neiman's San Francisco says they should be in the store around mid-November. If you want to check closer to the time, you can call (415) 362-3900 and ask for the Guerlain boutique.

    mrclmind, nice to see you stopping in!

    The boutique at the Palazzo in Las Vegas also says the same thing: mid-November:

    Oh no!!!

    I knew it was delayed, because I was expecting decants of these by next week. I did not realize that I have to wait almost a month.
