    Please don't take this as a criticism, but just as a point of information: la petite mort means "the little death" (yes, orgasm); le petit mort means "the little dead man."

    I should think Mr Atlan will be a little dead man once he realises he wont sell a great deal of his $1000 fanny juice

    I don't like "that" to begin with, so I don't want to smell like "that" for any amount of money. Not that there's anything wrong with that if other people do.

    LOL. Well, since you brought it up... I was once tending bar and was talking to a patron who was a gay choreographer-- really funny guy and he said he knew he was gay when he found his dad's stash of skin mags and some of them had "scratch and sniff" patches along with pictures of the girls. It really turned him off.

    I'm not always the biggest fan of all characteristics of "that" either in some circumstances, but then again with all due respect, the alternative prospect doesn't sound that appealing either! Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    One hundred thousand dollars net (if all 100 bottles sell, which I'm quite sure they will. Lots of people out there with cash looking for limited editions) is not what I would consider "doing it for the money" and greed, as been mentioned above. After subtracting the perfumers fees, and the usually large amounts for design and production of brand new bottle (for only a 100 bottle run). Plus all the costly advertising costs. There won't be that much of a profit to speak of left, if even any !? ...
    This is purely "perfume art" for perfume art's sake. And seeing that perfumery have for the large part always been mostly about attraction and sex anyways, it only makes sense that an artistic perfumer would be inspired and want to explore "orgasms" and their "juices" , which are after all only "human musk". ~ Musk has always been the major key player in fragrances, so exploring the notes that make up "human musk" only makes absolute sense to me. (It's almost like perfumery's "holy grail" !) ... ~ And I for one am very intrigued ! - And only applaud and encourage "perfume art". The more the better, I say !

    If, indeed, there are ONLY 100 bottles created for world distribution, then I'm surprised there's any left.

    I went to the site and went through the purchase process - there are indeed bottles left (at least, paypal was ready to charge me $1,100 [another $100 for shipping]).

    I did get a chance to sample this 4 times. It's okay, it's unique, but the real beauty was, I never yearned for more.

    So... what did it smell like? Was it "aphrodisiacally compelling"?

    Too many gimmicks in perfume these days. It's either Eau de Vagina or it's delivered in a Bentley or the bottle is made of some nonsensically expensive gem. The exclusivity of this item reeks of desperation. I prefer companies who focus on interesting fragrances over these gimmicky flash-in-the-pan releases.

    Dangling lauded perfumer names over me doesn't get me wet either. Kilian isn't even a perfumer, this is just one big pony show.

    About twenty of us chipped in and split a bottle, making it more affordable to satisfy our curiosities. It doesn't smell like a vulva, or an orgasm, or any secretion in my opinion. However, it does have an element of carnality to it and when I wear it I get that butterflies-in-the-stomach feeling. I think it smells quite amazing and one drop lasted for days even after multiple showers. Nothing about it was offensive at all but instead was extremely appealing. It had no "edge" to it but was very soft instead with a subtle milky-jasmine note. This doesn't have the intensity of the build-up, but more along the lines of the smoke afterwards. A suitable description would perhaps include some tuberose and musk, and I definitely get the "milk" note, although I would have never called it that otherwise. Something about this reminds me of Sarassins by Lutens but that may have everything to do with the color. In short, I really like this scent and I wear it on very rare occasions.

    Haha, I'd assume so, as split about 20 ways gives you what, 0.5ml or so a piece?

    Well, it only costs 1000$ for the initial purchase. The refills are free. In fact, you don't even have to leave the house for them...

    *LOL* I hope you're joking Suga - cos if you're not, then I've got a filthy mind !

    This Le Petite Mort stuff did nothing for me I'm afraid or perhaps I should be glad and relieved because it's very expensive and a limited edition to boot. I tried it at The Scent Bar last year and only got a wet dog smell. Lovely bottle though.
