    Just a quick note.

    Bois Noir is already available at the Gentlemen's Lounge in Harrods.

    I am a Bandit and Fracas fan! I would like to try these new releases.

    Mademoiselle? Isn't that a copyright issue here?

    If the EU can copyright so generic a word as "dandy," then surely "mademoiselle" will qualify.

    Usually there is no copyright on names, film/book titles, etc. The Chanel perfume is called 'Coco Mademoiselle' anyway so it's different. It will obviously create confusion among people who don't bother to write names in their complete form when they refer to them. I expect Piguet are banking on it. Chanel also have a 'Bois Noir'. Looks like dirty-trick competition to me.

    Stay tuned. The Alexander Doll Company in New York named a doll Coco a few years back -- no relation to Coco Chanel, didn't look like her, nothing -- and Chanel went legal. We'll just have to wait and see.

    I think that may be different because Coco is a 'proper noun' forever associated with Mlle Chanel, whereas Mademoiselle is a 'common noun'. However, I can absolutely see Chanel sueing Piguet over this (and Bois Noir).

    Interesting if Chanel did go legal..maybe they should just go ahead and relaunch Bois Noir it instead of suing. I'll take that.

    Don't know if it was wise to name these so close to Chanel, we will have to see...legalities..urgh.

    I was lucky to get a sample of ROBERT PIGUET - Oud.

    Not bad ... not bad at all. It does not have the heaviness of a real Arabic perfume oil blend, like e.g. AL HARAMAIN - Marwah, rather it is sort of fluffy and light and there is a certain silkiness to it.

    However, because I have Marwah, a 3 ML sample with a dipstick which makes for minute feathery application, and which is blooming beautifully and lasts for hours, there is no need to go out and spend big bucks on yet another attempt to introduce the glory of oud to the Western consumers.
