    You should give Reem Acra EdP a try! I was at saks and the SA showed it to me, even though it was market towards women. I put it and it's actually super nice! very clean and and sparkly, like champaign bubbles but without the booziness and super clean airy smelling.

    I'd be interested in your take on Light Blue. I was hoping D&G would simply take this and put it in a man bottle, which would have been preferable to the derivative and trite Light Blue pour Homme.

    I'd also suggest removing Aliage from the line-up as it is basically the same as Devin I believe, as many Estée/Aramis twins can be (eg. Cinnabar=J~H~L).

    Hypnotic Poison, instead, maybe?

    I can now empathise fully with you and my family southerngardens as the bug has bitten with a vengeance.

    Oh well, plenty of rest - and gratitude because I still have some sense of smell and taste remaining!!

    - - - Updated - - -

    Apologies all - once again this went up on the perfume's page but not the thread - excuse me I'm slightly indisposed.

    Perhaps I could do with something pharmaceutical, or chemical at least...

    CoSTUME NATIONAL Scent Intense

    Plastic is fantastic. Cellophane sublime.

    This is a perfume, metaphorically at least, from the electric age.

    It is a straight, severe, speed-limitless autobahn of a scent, possessing an industrial imperiousness that reduces the natural notes it slices through to an abstract blur.

    This streamlined, black-bottled, motor-like beast is a futurist fragrance.

    With an opening as sleek and smooth as a Mercedes' nought to sixty, our nylon-stockinged, vermilion be-lipsticked, peroxided and permed lady driver, a study in sexuality by an art deco artist, steers us swiftly in our hermetically sealed sedan.

    Perhaps there is an ocean shore outside, certainly there are fields and forests, but their smell remains at a distance kept back by the tang of vibrant vinyl seats and an oh-so-beautiful bakelite dashboard.

    Once we reach our high-pitched optimum velocity, there will be no breaks, no rest for rooms or restaurants. Our only refreshments petroleum and bitter tea served from vacuum flasks.

    Maximum speed again achieved, there is no relenting from the pace: this is a flat out race to no final destination.

    ***

    Scent Intense is an uncompromising industrial perfume that seems intent to take the artifice of the truly synthetic scent into the realms of artistry.

    In so doing it seems to make a virtue out of making things smell like highly polished replicas of themselves.

    The amber note is as newly-minted as a freshly bought pair of nylons, the tea has a too-shiny almost aluminium quality and the patchouli is as transparent and flawless as cellophane.

    As an exercise in engineering this fragrance too is almost flaw free.

    Unswervingly linear like a wind tunnel test bed, with the projection of a radio broadcast and the longevity of a transatlantic ocean liner it is a perfume to inspire admiration. Though whether it could ever engender affection or adoration is a moot point.

    This archaic aroma is not that of the Paris of the Jazz Age, but a hard-edged, sharp-lined, Ayn Rand heroine's sort of a scent. Chic, modern, calculated but brittle and ultimately unsympathetic.

    Sexual? Yes. Sensual? No.

    And is it man or woman? Neither. This is pure machine.

    teardrop you're quite right, Alien hasn't appeared yet as I've now built a few days delay in between the vote and the review.

    This means I've actually got a few reviews up my sleeve at any one time, so that I can make sure that I'm able to post something at least five times a week, even if on a particular day I'm to busy or called away or fall sick.

    Hope that makes sense!!

    Just so everyone is in the loop.... that means I've tried..

    Balmain de Balmain
    Alien
    Cinnabar
    Coco
    Lalique le Parfum

    and my thoughts are developing and are on their way.

    In the meantime...

    I've been holding off to release this one at the appointed hour (at least that is in GMT)...

    Dior Midnight Poison

    As an adult, never arrive at a children's tea party until it's all over.

    She had said, 'Come around about seven. They'll have worn themselves out and the 'grown ups' can have fun.'.

    Why oh why didn't I listen? Why did I think it would be generous, amusing even, to arrive when the ankle biters were still going tooth and claw at the table groaning with juvenile junk food?

    So, my evening starts with too cheap, too strong and too sweet orange soda. Made fizzy at home with alarming novetly machine that keeps threatening to explode.

    Then it's a game of 'hunt the jewel'. Somewhere in a giant bowl of half set mandarin jelly there's a prize. It must be removed with the mouth: no hands, no spoon - just head in said jelly. Full immersion.

    'Please, please' they yell, a youthful chorus 'join in, JOIN IN!!!'. And so, ever the sport, my petrified visage plunges into a whirling, swirling tepid pool of luminous gunk.

    I emerge, eventually, face, neck, collar covered in the most revolting fake fruit sweet slime that money can buy and mummy can make.

    A roar from the crowd - clenched between my suddenly yellowed teeth an amber pendant, it's silver chain resting wet on my chin. I pass it dutifully to the birthday girl and another cheer goes up.

    The final festive climax reached, the kids scatter and ready for the off as I skulk upstairs to reclaim my face and give any help possible to my poor hair.

    Returning to the scene of my triumphant undoing, the children have departed. Mother is about to take celebratory daughter upstairs for a bath and bed. I am to watch the door.

    Gradually the later, older guests arrive wrapped in their all surrounding adult smells. One wears patchouli as she has done since we were young, another rose to remember her mother by, a third antique vanilla with a touch of fragranced powder.

    Our host returns, daughter settled fast asleep. She has wrested the amber amulet from her and dabbed a little of its namesake's scent on the nape of her neck.

    As the evening floats onwards to the blue hour, the room glows with warm conversation, time-earnt friendships and the notes of perfumes too personal and familiar to need introduction.

    Even the congealed jelly on my collar has dried to an almost semi-precious crystal, though now and again emits a saccharine citrus to remind me of my mistake.

    If only I'd have arrived late.

    ***

    Midnight Poison by Dior is a fragrance of enormous contrasts.

    Sadly, in this reformulation at least, these are far from complimentary.

    The opening is quite simply catastrophic. A syrupy, synthetic and supremely nauseating fruit cocktail: it is an assault on the senses.

    And like lurid pineapple chunks skewered next fluorescent plastic cheese on cocktail sticks this hors d'ouevres can't fail to out stay its welcome.

    What happens very gradually after is, however, something quite remarkable: this raucous, rancorous, childish affair yields to an accomplished, mature, enigmatic and enticing composition whose apparent complexity belies a breathtakingly simple palette.

    Rose, amber, patchouli, vanilla.

    It is, in many ways, a work of dark mysteries. Of day and night, with midnight being by far the best hour.

    If only that opening just wasn't.

    Thank you to all fellow basenoters, and others, who led me to this hidden treasure...

    Pierre Balmain Balmain de Balmain

    She is the undiscovered royalty of the fragrance laboratory.

    The Marie Curie of the sweetly scented branch of industrial chemistry.

    She is the best of all Balmain ball gowns: her beauty by habit remains customarily hidden beneath a white coat and horrid blue hairnet.

    She spends her sterilized days, so people imagine, enrapt in endless games of molecular quadrille.

    In truth, she runs wild.

    Her mind will not have its horizons trimmed by test tubes, its considerations cut short by condensing pipes, its brilliance scorched back by bunsen burners.

    Where others perceive formulae she drinks in blackcurrant bush leaves broken by urgent brutish hands.

    The colourless liquids frothing up into clouds in conical flasks are putative rains for dark, lichen-mapped forests as yet unleashed.

    She will see measuring cylinders stuffed with irises and glass beakers fulled to the brim with green galbanum before day ends.

    Her chemist's kitchen thus transformed to wooded wonderland, she will imagine herself a savanna to surround her magic kingdom.

    This sorceress is sovereign over the sense who's memories last longest.

    She needs no acts of exuberant appreciation, no audience to adulate her.

    Her majesty is the air around her.

    ***

    Balmain de Balmain is not so much a forgotten masterpiece as a triumph never known to the crowd at all.

    In Parfum form, this brave latter day chypre, immediately errects an expansive architecture of oakmoss, vetiver, blackcurrant leaf and black pepper.

    Between these great steal vaults of scent creep slow swathes of green glass galbanum: filtering the sun's light and lending a slight bitter hue to fleshy iris, feint rose and just visible jasmine.

    It is a structure built to last.

    The overall effect at once luxurious and imperiously restrained.

    A youthful, mournful, beautiful dowager lamenting her dead and gone beloved.

    The King is dead.

    Long live the lost Queen.

    cello, southerngardens thank you both for your persistencee in getting this one to the top. Just to be 100% clear I didn't just like Balmain de Balmian - I loved it. I can't believe that it's had such a short life - born 1998 and already officially deceased.

    I'd love to read your take on Dune.

    I'm just coming into the thread, and have been really enjoying reading the previous reviews.

    Has anyone suggested any Cacharels, especially Eden and LouLou? To me, these two are stepsisters, with Eden maybe the more masculine of the two.

    A little later than expected, but worth the wait.

    I have little hesitation in recommending to any gentleman who has ever toyed with the 70's and 80's oriental explosion....

    Estée Lauder Cinnabar

    She wasn't a grade school teacher always. This woman has a past.

    Breaking from marking books of summer holiday reminiscences rendered in schoolboy scrawl, she decides to look again at the photographs.

    Just five years after Nixon, she too went to China. It was '78 and the next year an embassy would open in what we still called Peeking then. Someone had to ready it for the arrivals. Who better than the wife of the man who would be first cultural attache to the land of the Cultural Revolution?

    In a spirit of diplomatic decor, it was decided to break from American tradition: to forgo a little piece of the Uncle Sam overseas. Local sensitivities relating to cultural imperialism were judged to preclude the parochial neo-classicism of a White House away from home.

    So the the style would be Sino- American, through and through.

    In the photographs, honeyed polaroids sweetened almost sepia by age, she peers now at rooms she would never return to.

    A jade green vestibule with minature orange trees standing guard at every entrance, each bright fruit wired for sound when entertaining.

    The blue and white willow pattern reception room, where concealed cinnamon and clove spiced incense burned, to purify the guests before they meet the Ambassador.

    A second function room in saffron yellow, with great imitation Ming vases filled with jasmine, ylang ylang, and lilies next shameless shaker pots stuffed full of American imported roses.

    A pause to shake the great man's hand then onwards to the piece de resistence.

    The vermilion laquered box made dining room. This jeweled chamber of glistening red walls. Its centre a rosewood oval table bearing solid amber places surrounded by two dozen chairs polished in resins that smell purposely of vanilla.

    Inviting you to sit with a hand that slices thick air, tempered here too with smoked bezoin and more cloves, the Ambassador, carnation in buttonhole, prepares to speak.

    But she never took her seat at the Ambassador's table, never dined in her dining room. Her cultural attache came from a culture of casual violence and even more casual sex it turned out.

    A divorce. All settled six months before the dust sheets could come off the jade, willow pattern blue, saffron and vermilion rooms.

    A return home and a career to support her new daughter.

    Nothing could be more respectable than a small town grade school teacher with an uncommonly beautifully decorated home.

    With manicured, painted hands, she closes the black gloss, hard covered photographic album and returns it to its own red lacquered box.

    She reads from the exercise book before her, scribbled in childish hand:

    'This summer I went to China....'

    ***

    Cinnabar is the common ore of mercury. Beautiful and toxic. Perhaps this is why at Estee Lauder counters they keep this object of a certain striking beauty hidden from sight.

    For there seems no logical reason to conceal this warm, generous and welcoming pseudo-oriental scent.

    Yes it is a version of China about as real as the model factories and swarms of smiling children Pat Nixon met in 1973, but this perfume knows that it is half way to being propaganda and for that reason never takes itself too seriously.

    A bright and cheery, flag waving entrance of citrus leads swiftly to an hallway of the people with a determined spicy architecture. Structural elements of near sanitary cloves and almost strident cinnamon ensure that other softer elements do not sag.

    So, when incense and vanilla and florals and bezoin come wafting through their route is defined and direct maintaining a brisk and clear order to the whole assembly as though some benign school ma'am were keeping a watchful eye over the proceedings.

    Perhaps this is where it all went wrong for Cinnabar: where other perfumes of this genre let it all, and then more, far much too much more, hang out, it kept its nerve and retained its composure.

    At the time that might have felt a little too tight lipped, severe even.

    Looking back it seems, just like Cinnabar itself: an act of unwaivering poise and impeccable judgement.

    Default Re: What female scents are even deadlier on the male?

    So, the most out there try out so far...

    Thierry Mugler Alien

    I'm always unnerved by the prospect of meeting extra terrestrials

    In this case my cautious Kevin impulses were well founded.

    This is no beautiful bug-eyed friend of Elliot.

    This is a metal Mickey who wants to shoot you dead and eat your head.

    Once inside this man from Mars you can expect to eat cars... Mercuries and Subarus, Cadillacs and Lincolns too.

    Then go out at night to eat up bars where people meet.

    Dancing slow, cheek to cheek, toe to toe. Man to man.

    He blows each away with his jasmine ray gun.

    The dancefloor carnage, he's through with bars and eatin' cars now he's time only for guitars.

    Plastic plectrum attached aluminium arm he plays stratocaster, Travis Bean and then some Deans. He eats the crowd up with laser beams

    Installed on rock star plinth its time to introduce some synth. His perspex paws pick out peerless pitch, he plays Moog, Korg, Casio and Yamaha. And all the floor screams for one note more.

    Let them clamber! He knocks them out for good and proper, here comes his blast of metal amber.

    And so with all dead or in thrall the man from Mars is through with cars and beat up bars, he'll take no prisoners or even guitars.

    He's on his way back to the stars.

    ***

    Alien is en exercise in peerless artificiality.

    A plastic jasmine plant in the perspex hand of a seventeen foot high cybernetic son of a bitch.

    An unending singular neo-industrial note of almost entirely synthetic strangeness.

    You have no option but to offer it grovelling and unending worship.

    But wear it? I suspect it probably wears you.

    Man or woman? Totally irrelevant.

    These days we're all electric.

    But while I'm human and there's blood not volts coursing through these veins I'm not ready for this robot's secret Rapture.

    Thierry Mugler's Alien is a monster on all fronts. It has monster longevity and casts monster sillage! Even I haven't the fortitude to wear it in public and that is saying a lot about Alien! She's a bitch to contend with.
    I'm not OLD...I'm VINTAGE!
