He can do both!
If I consider it correctly, Mr Lebreton (as a brand) is the only supplier with a reasonably significant portfolio, of which I know all the fragrances. "halfway worth mentioning" means: no single performance like 'Knowledge', 'Juozas Statkevicius' etc. This is my Lebreton number six and once again I thank Derailroaded for the sample.

Cornaline is a real Lebreton. The man prefers quite frankly strong olfactory brush strokes. He does not shy away from any botany-based vulgarity (I am thinking of the orcus of floral displeasure in 'L'Eau de Merzhin') and does not shy away from rustic humanities (such as the presentation of an incontinent gardener in 'Grimoire'). And there's something about all that today, too.

It opens up a rubbery botanical stink, which is quickly relined rough. The floral note soon has something primarily lipstick-like, there greets 'Incarnata' from the same house. In general - see above - a handwriting seems clearly recognizable to me. Perhaps it will now be possible to underlay this line with an interpretation in the test of No. 6.

For the demarcation we refer to a Ropion from the house Frédéric Malle: 'Carnal Flower'. Not at all a twin - in a way just the opposite! The latter is elegant and ladylike; that's exactly what I'm aiming for. Instead, Mr Lebreton may want to refer to full life with (however distant) comparable aroma building blocks. His fragrances don't look fine, but down-to-earth, like to behave lustfully next to them, fleece around on the floor, let a wide selection of juices flow or even a fart escape. One or the other amusement may seem questionable, but it can be regarded as cheerful. Opera ball vs. village festival.

I don't find the scent as smelly as water lily complains - concretely: I can't confirm the dog pile. And I have experience with that, because light-shy Gassher riffraff occasionally leaves such things with us in front of the property and you can tell smaller children a thousand times that they should be careful. That smells different!

I suppose a stinker like Hyazinthe will manage today's shoot in combination with a darker musk variant (plus possibly a hint of unnamed spice with a hint of sweetness - cumin?) well without fucking help. Essentially so far Plantalik - as a counterpart to Animalik.

We come to that in the further course, if during the morning gradually Pieselnote and dirty spice à la Grimoire become noticeable. In the afternoon a similarity develops to Kurkdjian's 'Absolue pour le Soir', probably owed to the benzoin. In combination with the Pipi a honey-like Animalik develops and leads inevitably to the...

...Conclusion: He can do both! Certainly not easy to carry, that's what he has in common with his siblings.

PS: "Cornaline" is French for "carnelian" and could be conceptually related to the dogwood (Cornus). What's that supposed to mean?
