    The nose is Serge Lutens

    The majority of the first feedbacks said similarities with Jeux de peau and Santal blanc for the sandalwood note

    I don't really have high hopes much these days, but maybe they'll surprise us?

    I think it'd compliment the cocoa in borneo 1834 very nicely.

    Thank you!
    I am on the mail list and get emails about new releases. They email and offer the sample, you have to go to the site via a link and fill in your details. Usually takes two weeks for a sample to arrive in Ireland.

    I have it on skin.
    The starting is very similar to Jeux de peau imo, the santal is proeminent.
    Now i have a little more rose but it's subtle.
    Maybe if you found JdP "too much" but appreciate the santal base with a hint of rose you'll like it.
    But i still think that JdP haters will not like it ^^

    It's just my first impression on hot weather, so i have to explore it much. For now (as i have and love JdP) i not plan to purchase it.

    I'm in Paris and I tried it today at the Palais Royal. Didn't try it on my skin, but they gave me a sample with my purchase

    Definitely a strong rose note, very clean, with the cocoa subdued. The sandalwood isn't nearly as pervasive as in Santal de Mysore, but is quite sharp and matches the rose. I'd imagine the cocoa comes out in the base, but no way to tell on a card.

    I had a chance to sniff it at the SF Sniff. First impression: Lovely warm sandalwood and rose. May be too much chocolate for me; not sure from just one sniff!

    Mon-Petit, that ad is gorgeous!

    I just smelt it today at Barney's in San Francisco. It is surprisingly different on paper and skin; on the former, it is all salycilates that refuse to dry out- but on skin, it open like a classic attar- strong- almost BO like darkness, from which unfurls a very dark (and undoubtedly lovely) rose. The suppposed cocoa comes off more as patch on my skin- giving the whole thing a very retro arabian attar feel. Not a pale, creamy rosy sandalwood- but dark, woody rose. Good- but hasn't Amouage done this already?

    The ebay bottle sold for £122!!!!! It will be released in the UK at the end of July at £83!!! Going to wait to try it first. Have to say liking the sound of it from the reviews above.

    I tried it too along with Sarrasins, La Myrrhe and Iris Silver Mist at the Palais Royal yesterday. Totally different from the other three, as you would expect. It's quite fresh and peppery at the start then smoothes out into a very warm, rich dry down. Moreish (and Moorish, given the roses are Moroccan!). It smelled equally good on my husband. And for the record, I bought it.

    Not yet...
    When L'eau froide was released I received a sample. I hope to receive also this new one...

    Tried this today - disappointed.
    To be fair - I didn't try it on skin. But on card, it opens in similar sweet sandalwoody style as Jeux De Peau - extremely similar. So where Jeux De Peau turns into an apricot and liqourice sandalwood, there is a rose under Santal Majascule, and the cocoa is very subtle. To be honest, it smells like nothing new in the Lutens' line up, I hope to hell is upcoming gardenia is wonderful!

    No offers of samples as yet. Usually are by now. My friend who works for Kenneth Greene and sells Lutens said it should be with her in House of Fraser early August. Its officially released in the UK end of July.

    It's in Harrods now. And they had a sneaky bottle behind the Lutens counter at Harvey Nichols (who said they'll be getting it in properly along with samples on Monday).
