    Default Elle 25- I WON!!!!

    Elle magazine had a contest this past fall to win one of 25 bottles of perfume made by Francis Kurkdjian (just for Elle magazine)

    Since this is a nose I fawn over, I had to enter.

    They are mailing me a bottle this week :-)

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    It may one day become as sought after as the elusive Marie Claire perfume by Guerlain! *sighs*

    I re-read the contest, it is signed by FK as well. That alone is worth the prize, But please please, can FK deliver to me personally??? I keep asking for a fragrant kiss from this man in my reviews of his works :-)

    It is a chypre, and if its anything like Rose Barbare, or his Lumierre Noir Pour Femme I will be very tickled.
    Oh, and no plans to hoard, I don't have kind of self restraint :-)

    Super Duper, BK... I took the liberty of contacting Elle, and having them go ahead and send your scent to you at your 'Texas address'.

    Here is my review, I don't see it in the directory:
    This is a fragrance that you had to win, and oh yea am I happy I entered! (My bottle is autographed by FK himself and marked 1 of 25)

    Privately I was skeptical, because I've tried some of FK's commercial frags that were clearly a waste of his time (Bebe, anyone?)

    But this bull came out of the chute with a coat and top hat, and I give it a standing ovation!

    Bull came to mind because to me this is a 'Taurean' fragrance. It's sensuous, slow-burning, and dripping with all the right sins. Think Venus in all her self-gratifying glory. Nothing is denied here, this is straight up Eden with no barrier to the tree.

    I want to say it has orange blossom or narcissus because the florals are heavy. This could pass for a Guerlain, and if I dind't know any better I would think that it was. It's marketed as a chypre, but if there is oakmoss here it is very weak. I'd be surprised if vetiver wasn't included, because at the tail end of a deep sniff it dips into the 'stinky body' category. The halo is what sells this, as it's like tinkling piano notes of a tender ballet tune. Nice.

    Again, thank you British Elle!

    WOW. Comgratulations
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
