    I haven´t heard of him before, but obviously he made 17 perfumes this year. Among them one for Nishane and nine(!) for Bruno Acampora(!)...

    I think I might be the *only* person who likes that Jungle Jezebel bottle. It's hilarious to me! I think Divine would have approved. Of the bottle. But that's to say nothing of the scent......

    Divine would have been horrified. It's not kitch, it's tacky and unworthy of Divine.

    I have sampled this (not something I ever wanted, it just crossed my path...) and these are my thoughts:

    Starts with the impression of being in a factory as it smells industrial. In the factory someone has put a bunch of spicy, minty lavender and some rotten lemons next to the metallic machines where there are probably some rats having a nest in there, as it smells somewhat funky. Now imagine a women who hasn't washed for a few days, wearing a cheap rose perfume is passing by, leaving a scent trail and you can smell her nasty breath while she swears because she has just stepped on a rat and dirtied her shoe with blood.
    At least he got the name right; but instead of releasing and charging money for it, it would have been better to throw it away in the toilet. Just saying, in case of part 3 crosses his mind.
    I'll give it a 2/10 just because I've smelled worse things (like Bogue Douleur, Imaginary Authors Bulls Blood, Sospiro Classica).

    Thanks for that visceral description. I'm going to be able to finish my breakfast, but barely.

    I thought it was an apt review of something randomly thrown together by some bozo who doesn't know what he's doing.
    There are NO reviews at Fragrantica, apparently nobody's buying.
    I think the only customers will be youtube reviewers desperate for views. Like this guy, who was rendered inarticulate: "It's not a good smell...it's not a bad smell either. It's a good bad smell."

    It's almost clickbait, isn't it? All that's missing is "You won't believe..." or "shocking" in the title.

    Looks to me that he received the bottle and he tries to say it's artistic, because he can't say it' s bullshit. I wonder what would perfumers like Elena, Ropion, Demachy etc. would say about releasing a perfume that is a mix of all the crap that didn't work.
