    Le Lion—today particularly because of the sublimer-than-usual vanilla in it. A particular vanilla note different from others I know of.
  20. Re: Why did you wear what you wore today.. January 2021

    I’m wearing Le Lion because all its notes speak to me. Most perfumes I love contain at least one note I don’t like but can be overlooked for the effect of the whole. But with Le Lion, it’s all good.

    Agree with cazaubon. I don’t find them the same. To my nose Coromandel is more syrupy and Le Lion has more note separation and is a bit drier.
