    Default Bengale Rouge by Papillon Perfumery

    Bengale Rouge, is the latest masterpiece from Papillon Perfumery. It isn't released yet, but Liz kindly sent me a sample. Because I know the back story to this perfume, her muse for the creation of this scent was Mimi, one of her gorgeous Bengal cats, when I first sprayed it on, I get the impression of nuzzling my nose into the fluffy fur on a kitten's tummy. The opening notes are glorious, and last quite a while. It then starts to dry down, to a gentle, but very long lasting dusty rose, with powdery notes that are ever so subtle. See the attached photos for the notes in this scent. This scent doesn't scream. It will smell equally wonderful on both men and women.Beng1.jpgBeng2.jpg
    Fine fragrance is alive; it breathes, unfolds and unravels with each passing hour....

    Thanks for sharing this. It sure sounds lovely. As a cat person and rose scent lover my curiosity is piqued.

    The note breakdown sounds superb - but the inspiration for the scent doesn't say much to me. I find that aspect rather off-putting TBH.

    That's for sure! She says there that the launch has been postponed until August.

    She hasn't screwed up yet, not even close, so I'm excited to try this one.

    Me too. Very interested to try. I trust Kafka’s nose, and Liz Moore’s artistry. Am excited to try this.

    The way Kafkaesque is carrying on about BR's perfection, I hope the launch delay is not due to Liz tweaking the formula!
