    Default New Fragrances: A Lab on Fire - Rose Rebelle and What We Do Is Secret

    From nstperfume.com:

    S-Perfume’s A Lab on Fire brand has launched two new fragrances, Rose Rebelle and What We Do Is Secret:

    Rose Rebelle ~ “consists of notes of pink rose with notes of cocoa.”

    What We Do Is Secret ~ “What We Do Is Secret is the olfactive footprint of A Lab on Fire. It is unusual without being strange, rich without money, fresh without green, masculine without male.” With notes of bergamot, nutmeg, pepper, leather, jasmin, sandalwood, patchouli and birchwood.

    A Lab On Fire Rose Rebelle and What We Do Is Secret can be found now at Colette in Paris, in 15 ml Eau de Parfum.

    Hope they are better than the last release, L'Anonyme... I didn't dislike it but don't find myself using it up.

    According to ALOF website:

    "What We Do In Paris Is Secret" is by Dominique Ropion, release late '11

    The other one is listed as "Sweet Dreams 2003" and is by Thierry Wasser, available early '12

    Not available for sale on the website yet...

    WWDIPIS might be ok if the nutmeg isn't too prominent... but I'll def. skip the other. Not a huge gourmand or Wasser fan.

    I really like the name What We Do Is Secret, I hope they did something interesting with nutmeg, leather and jasmine. Someone need to sniff & report!

    Why did they have to change the name?!? I was thrilled with that Germs homage

    What does a Germs burn look like? Kind of a circle?

    I'm in for whatever these guys make, no questions asked. This outfit is pure perfumery, by and for addicts like us. It's the fragrance equivalent of a drug operation.

    I mean, check out this picture of Wasser. This guy is working a straight gig at Guerlain? Yeah, right.

    Wasser's pic is pretty pimp looking, I will admit.

    I'm really glad to see that Guerlain is letting Wasser break out of the box. While I definitely think he's the man to internalize and carry on the Guerlain traditions, I'm sure he gets an irresistible itch to let his art go where the mood takes him. This will be a fascinating scent - can't wait to try it.

    They should have kept the WWDIS name. If they are as cheap as L'Anonyme, I'll certainly pull the trigger and buy blind. L'Anonyme is actually pretty nice for one of those minimalist/transparent fragrances.

    If Dominique Ropion is ithe nose for a scent, it's a must sample for sure. My hopes aren't too high with this company though.

    I received my 15ml bottle of What we do (in paris) is secret...

    Strange smell, difficult to describe it: something a bit weird, but familiar at the same time. Very abstract. A skin scent; soft but with personality. It's like if the own skin could smell like this ... I smell something which reminds me the smell of cheese: some kind of milkiness, with an animalic facet. The fruity/floral sweetness of jasmine is also present, mixed with the bergamot, to "strengthen" the soft-cheesy-human skin accord.

    In contrast, I smell leather and what probably could be the birchwood; It smells masculine but in a very soft texture... As I say, it's a very soft fragrance: not ethereal, not "transparent" but soft and natural like the smell of the own skin.

    I think I could take a bath in this; sillage is minimal and longevity look decent, as far as possible for a very minimalist concept like this...

    Thanks for the description Rudolfo. Per the website to A Lab On Fire, the launch has been cancelled, now they say it will be launched "late 2011", and it has disappeared from Colette. You were lucky to get a bottle!

    Really? Strange... maybe collette sold the few bottles they carried; that's all

    ...or maybe in a future my own bottle could be a collector's piece lol lol

    Hmmm, wonder if the scent will be different when it is released later on?

    Now 5 hours after two spritzs on my wrist I still smelling a soft and round delightful accord...

    Maybe not in strengh or sillage level, but this is the best skin scent I ever tried... it's part of yourself and smells wonderful!

    Typically they aren't two words I'm fond of either when it comes to fragrances, but if I had to pick one that stands out among the sheer and transparent, L'Anonyme is quite nice.

    I managed to get one, too. I had a dream about Rose Rebelle, so I bought both fragrances the moment I woke up, and got them today. Very fast - colette and FedEx did very nicely.

    As an aside, WWDIS is labeled as such, and I suspect that these fragrances went out on the website before the lawyers were consulted. WWDIS probably has the noted song issues, and Rose Rebelle is a Chanel lipstick here. What. Ever. I suspect that they're just getting renamed or something.

    WWDIS(IP) - pun noted but not intended - is nice. Total agreement with Rodolfo. It's even more minimalist than L'Anonyme, IMO, so if that's not your bag, think carefully. But I like it. Very clean, and has this fascinating background quality that basically smells like a good room. My first impression was that it had some similarity to Etro Mahogany, only nicer. Mahogany always smells to me like an empty apartment with new hardwood flooring - a very clean odor. This smells similar, except somewhat like fragrance. Some faint notes, as if somebody with a really good fragrance just left the room, and you walked in, and wish to G_d that you had come earlier so you would have found out what it was. I don't get the dirty stuff as much as the waxy and clean stuff. Smells fabulous on clothing, too. Wearing it on skin brings out more of the "heavy" bio notes - the skin smells Rodolfo noted. Cloth gives it more freshness, overall. My wife noted the difference between the two immediately. She was also unequivocal that it's unusual - an extremely rare compliment from her (she thinks damn near everything in fragrance smells "usual". She says good, but unusual.

    Very wearable for such a unique fragrance. About the same level of wearability as L'Anonyme, but lighter. But oddly persistent as a background - the effect is reminiscent of Yuzu Man, but much more subtle and not overtly citrus.

    US Customs got medieval on my sample, though. Big razor-slash through the bubble-wrap and product packaging, right down to the frag. You would figure that the one they would open would be "What We Do Is Secret".
