Loewenherz has kindly informed us that "Charogne" is inspired by the well-known poetry book "Les Fleurs du Mal". I read that once, ages ago, when I was still in my existential phase. But even then I read the alternative draft to it, "The Blouses of Bohemia" by Robert Gernhardt. And "Charogne" can't be serious either. Or is it? EldO are just bad. This time unfortunately no sound file on the web page, but only a very ambiguous text. Based on my life so far, I have deduced that this is the scent of a woman who is no longer young and who enjoys seduction. So rather the experienced slut and not the dead mouse that our cat left last week under the bed as a present (no, no current event).
"Charogne" starts with lilies and jasmine. Very strong and sweet but not too sweet. Nothing with decomposition. You might think of cemetery flowers because of the Fleurs du Mal and the carrion, but it doesn't smell stuffy. This great top note is unfortunately only short and then the pharmacist comes with a thick old leather bag. Which really would have taken me to the limit of washing up if the projection wasn't so underground that nobody would smell it anyway if he didn't crush his nose at the spot where the perfume was applied. That falls under exciting and amusing experiences with funny smells. All the more when I complained and told Tester M that it now smelled "stupid like leather and pharmacy". Which is why he crushed his nose on my arm and said, "why? Smells great like rice cookies." Puffed rice wafers or Asian rice crackers? When I squeezed my nose again myself it smelled pleasantly vanilla. And this pleasant vanilla has kept the perfume until now, it probably remains so until the end.
Then I can buy a gourmand perfume right away, you don't have to go through the funny transformation. Besides, the projection's too low for me. Shelf life's okay.
You can wear it whenever you want, except for sports. Women can probably wear it, and men might enjoy it even more. Tester M wanted to test it himself and that happens rather rarely
