Maybe Encre Noir could be called Smokey the Bear's wet dream, or something like that?
    Personally, I wasnt even trying to be funny. lol I think I was just being myself and experiencing the fragrance, like I do any other.

    Just re-reading Luca Turin's 5-friggin-star review of Secretions Magnifiques. And this guy gives Bois du Portugal 3 stars? I bet he also thought that crucifix in urine peice a few years back was high art.

    Erm maybe you should educate yourself about " Piss Christ "

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piss_Christ

    " Serrano has not ascribed overtly political content to Piss Christ and related artworks, on the contrary stressing their ambiguity. He has also said that while this work is not intended to denounce religion, it alludes to a perceived commercializing or cheapening of Christian icons in contemporary culture "

    This thread has become so random and meaningless its hilarious !!!!!

    The photograph was one of a series of photographs that Serrano had made that involved classical statuettes submerged in various fluids—milk, blood, and urine.
    Sounds not that different from SM actually.

    I don't think comparing Secretions Magnifique to a different piece of shock art is random and meaningless. My belief is that SM has garnered all this attention because it is so shocking. Same with Serrano's piece, if it were merely a photo of a crucifix, would it have gotten this much attention?

    Though I appreciate your recommendation for me to "educate myself," I'm familiar with the piece; I called it crucifix in urine to avoid using "Piss Christ" on Basenotes.

    This is a perfect example of why I could care less about his opinions.
    He gives one of the better Creeds only 3 stars, but gives a gimmick 5!


    But then again, thoughts on fragrances are very subjective.
    Because of this, maybe I shouldn't be so hard on LT...

    Exactly! Good observation buzzley. I took both of these reviews as entertainment and not information (and not very entertaining at all). Makes me want to buy the scent and wear it around all the young, disrespectful, ill-mannered young people of today with all their light/fresh/clean no character synthetic scents and their underwear hangin' out with their ball cap on sideways or backwards....sort of an olfactory middle finger.

    Nice review, but she sounds like a Berlitz failure at French.

    Enjoyed all the reviews on some level. Kerosene's was the funniest though. Interesting that the child didn't find it gross.

    Bit shocked that the sweet looking girl in green was swearing like a sailor.

    Katie is rather stiff. That put me off. Also, "pee and poo" aren't secretions, they're excretions. Then again, blood is neither...

    Finally got around to trying this stuff. It's actually quite a pleasant, interesting scent. Not at all what I was expecting after seeing these reviews.

    It's interesting all right. Just like sticking your nose up to a dog's bum is interesting.

    I thought this was hilarious. I always see her looking so prepared, so it was definitely fun to watch this. Always liked her personality.

    I also tried this one a couple of weeks ago with some of my friends. None of us found it as revolting as the hype machine wanted us to believe it was. One of my friends said that she thought it smelled like old dying flowers, but that in and of itself didn't particularly bother her.

    There are a few BN favorites that I find much more offensive than this one. Don't think I'd buy a full bottle of SM , but either way, not all as bad as it's rumored to be IMHO.

    "For the record, there always should have been a dissenting view from me on this one: one star, absolutely revolting, like a drop of J'Adore on an oyster you know you shouldn't eat. Whatever you do, do not allow any to touch your nose when you smell it off a paper. I know Luca is a convincing proselytizer, but trust me. TS"

    Not that it matters, but I find her truly beautiful. Also, of course it helps when a critic knows what she is talking about and never lacks words to express herself clearly and as a lady.

    I think that is the essence of writing, isn't it? Inspired by my last look at this board I tried it again. And I have to admit that it seemed to be tremendously strong. One spritz tickled my nose for hours. But light application payed later when SM went into the base, which can be stuffy, as every woody - e/g sandalwood - tends to be.

    The picture of a rotten oyster with a drop of an effeminate perfume - it's clearly a matter of taste. Change the thick perfume to a blooming white wine and accept a faint seashore smell of the oyster as natural, here You are!

    It all depends on the attitude with which someone get's his nose closer. There are people who think Jicky smells of poop. Once this picture is settled, it's hard to correct it. So, the 'review' here (* Katies) is exactly not that. It is a first glance with tons of prejudice, not at least emphasized by an anxious attitude the US-American 'community' in here piled up.

    Remember the 'Old Europe" thing? Secretions Magnifique IS a 5 star perfume - refine something harsh with a pleaser: Mitsouko, refine a pleaser with something harsh: SM. The US-style expresses itself in fruit salad oriented offensively generic and/or derivative concoctions of CREED heritage (?!) the like. So, You wish to smell attractive? Avoid SM, Your mindset doesn't fit.

    I think a masterpiece - which occasionally may seem to be a trick of the tail - is such independently from peoples likings

    I myself have tried this fragrance, hoping to find that somehow they had managed to bottle that "just rolled off your lover" scent. I was supremely disappointed. This fragrance to me is the quintessential "Emperor With New Clothes". I'm sure some genuinely love it, but I suspect a great deal of those that say they love it are only saying that to seem sophisticated and elitist. Even after two showers, scrubbing in the sink, trying to layer something more appealing over it, twice, the single drop I applied to my forearm took almost 24 hours to dissipate. This has horrific staying power, like the bog of eternal stench, and I feel deeply sorry for this reviewer because of how much she applied.

    Oh, and it smelled like cat piss on me, with iris. I'm jealous of anyone who has tried this and actually got the "semen" note. Lucky you.
