    Default NEW: A Lab On Fire - Hallucinogenic Pearl For Women!

    From NST:






    A Lab On Fire has launched Hallucinogenic Pearl, a new floriental violet leather fragrance for women.

    The air is warmed and stilled, the sky a hazy shade of blue.

    Here, free of all restrictions we stay up too late, rise too early, just to be here.

    Here, the gaze focuses, then looks past.

    Here, a sense of genuine divinity is felt between skin tones and Venetian blonde, leather and lace.

    And more, much more than this, we do it our way.


    Hallucinogenic Pearl was developed by perfumer Émilie Coppermann.

    The notes include ambrette seed, bergamot, pink pepper, violet, Iriseine De Laire,* orris, suede, blond woods and musks.



    A Lab On Fire Hallucinogenic Pearl is available in 60 ml.

    Are you sure that mescaline isn't one of the notes?

    No kidding though, I am eager to smell this.

    Thanks hednic!

    Sounds FAR OUT.

    Yes. I used to say "far out", when it was "far out, man".

    Why do think it's for women?
    This is an unisex fragrance as any from A Lab on Fire.

    I use it and love it. Absolutely not for everybody. Try before buy.

    A very AGRESSIVE and gasoline-type leather at beginning with some apricoty/osmanthus nuances at the dry down.

    Sometimes I feel myself wearing a gasoline station.

    (though I do like the sound of the notes.)

    Wow... I just sampled this today and I think it might be FBW! It took me a minute but I love that leather/gasoline note!

    Sounding better all the time! Any overall resemblance to Fahrenheit? That would be even better!

    Wondering the same.

    A feminine/unisex Fahrenheit with some oomph has to be better than the current timid version of Fahrenheit, doesn't it?

    Any similarity to Hyacinth and a Mechanic by Andy Tauer? That one sure has the floral/petrol thing going on. Like a vase of hyacinths with a rag used to clean a motorcycle lying next to it.

    Absolutely. I have an older non-vintage bottle of Fahrenheit that I love because it's more like regular gas and less oily/dieselish like vintage, but the last bottle I sniffed in Macy's made me glad I already had a bottle. No fear felt whatsoever - that's just WRONG for Fahrenheit.

    Woody leather with petrol notes - very classic. Many women swipe it! A Turin fave in the vintage. Takes some people a while to warm up to it.

    For a female/unisex/(Malé) Fahrenheit, I strongly recommend Jil Sander Simply EdT. Link to info/review here.
