    I'm sure some people will find the name to be.....stunning and brave.

    Will sample it when given the chance.

    Lavender and vanilla - so a fougere flanker? I love White, but I'm not convinced on this one. Sounds like it could be a modern amberwood fougere, which is not appealing to me at all. But I could see fans of that genre (at least modern fougere style) liking it.
    “I have often observed that [scents] cause an alteration in me and work upon my spirits according to their several virtues; which makes me approve of what is said, that the use of incense and perfumes in churches, so ancient and so universally received in all nations and religions, was intended to cheer us, and to rouse and purify the senses, the better to fit us for contemplation” - Montaigne

    If it's in line with Lalique's usually (more than) affordable pricing, it's an instant blind buy for me. Love the note list - especially incense, cardamom, lavender, vanilla and when used right, a well-judged dose of Ambroxan can work wonders too. Hopefully it will be used well in this case.

    Not hopeful for this one. Stupid name, and I'm sick of ambroxan (predictably) being in every new release. Also, where's the tamarind note that made White so unique?

    I really dislike that font, like it came out of a Dymo label maker. Sorta cheapens the bottle IMO.

    What an ugly bottle!
    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    Not sure how I got to it last night, looking for some summer spring freshies... felt real good to be able to get at something so new. Though can't find it online. Not on the Lalique website. However in the menu for mens perfume, the image of the bottle is there, but with ombre Noire. Link does to ombre Noire.
    First ever frag I MAY get at full retail!!
