Thanks for starting the new thread, freddie!
l've got a ton of stuff to get through, too, so fear not, you will not be alone here!

Today (Saturday 3rd) l tried Chypre Rouge by Serge Lutens, the next step in my quest to understand the immortelle note.
l get that dry, sweet-spicy note of immortelle in the opening, with hints of resin & honey rather than maple syrup. There's a little smoke, & then a suggestion of dark, dried berries or red wine, rather than the jello/fruit gum accord that l've read about. One hour in, a mossy note begins to come forward, & deep in the base, a touch of vanilla. The projection is very low, & it all fades out after around five hours.
l didn't dislike this one, but it didn't really move me, either. l don't think it's as terrible as many of the reviews seem to suggest, though.
