    Hope the fragrance is better than the name and bottle.

    Thanks for the review; it actually sounds rather good. So the French had "Avec son Tralala", the Brits had "My little stick of Blackpool Rock". Vive la difference!

It was sung for the first time by Suzy Delair in the film Quai des Orfèvres (1947) by Henri-Georges Clouzot. An obvious subtext runs all through the lyrics and the meaning of the word 'Tralala' is left to the interpretation of the listener...

    Trés drôle! Merci! That was a hoot.

    I have to wonder at the kind of idiot who truly believes that Penhaligons are promoting violence against women by naming this perfume "Tralala".

    Purveyors of unequivocal political correctness, conspiracists & probably the same type of folks who deem fragrances to be a threat to society?

    Mumsy - great opening salvo, I enjoyed your review!

    I haven't worn Tralala but from a generous spritz on paper I concur. My initial impression from spending an afternoon with it is that it does have a classical mood going for it while maintaining a 'modern' touch, a bit of sweetness that renders it less 'austere' than the word classic might suggest.

    I'm reluctant to say too much given only one day with it on a mouillette - I have no idea how it 'wears' - so will just say that these perfumes come to mind, and I do look forward to the official launch and a chance to get a sample and spend some quality time trying it out:

    Moulin Rouge
    Lalfeorosa
    Hasu no Hana
    Traverse a la Bosphore.

    If anything about any of these appeal to you then Tralala is probably well worth checking out

    It's now available for £150 for 100ml. I have to say the bottle and packaging look really awful and really tacky.

    I think that it might be a case of waiting for a split to avoid having to home that bottle

    I think this place would make a perfect home for the bottle. lol

    Jack I think I would prefer the haunted house without the bottle.

    Lol...... If you were making a horror film about a cursed bottle of perfume that killed anyone that used it. Penhaligons Tralala would be the one you would use.

    I like the bottle, I can see it sandwiched nicely between a photo of my dead uncle and my stuffed cat.

    I just showed Granny and she says it looks deplorable and she never wants to set eyes upon it again!

    I would be happy to organise a split on the split thread but we would all be arguing about who gets the bottle for all the wrong reasons.

    From your description mumsy it sounds like an interesting fragrance, and I would love to smell it and I'm sure that I can the next time I pass a Penhaligons store. However the name is suspect, and the bottle, even if it weren't Penhaligons; oy, the bottle!

    At least P are trying to break their mould but maybe they've forgotten their target audience. Unless of course they are after a new age bracket in which case the scent is too sophisticated and needs some sugar. If I get a sample then I will forward on.

    The bottle threatens to waste the work of a decent perfumers skills if you ask me. Perhaps after all the excitement of the launch and the first flurry, they might produce a plain bottle to follow.

    Lets hope they do Mumsy because from the note breakdown and your thoughts on it, it looks like a winner. But that bottle does them no favors at all.
