Peony-Iris-PowderHoubigant Lutece, launched with a splash in 1984 (I remember the advertising featured a ritzy-looking blond), is what you might call a gothic floral: a deathly dark peony-iris concoction that becomes drier and more powdery the longer it hangs on. (Many have noted that it is reminiscent of Ombre Rose Original -- see the darkness motif?) Like a number of fumes from Houbigant's catalogue, Lutece got sold to Dana, which promptly ruined it. Ah well.
