A rotting lily soaked in warm vanilla
So I tried this Charogne, attracted by some other reviews that I found in certain websites.
With a lily resembling that one from the good old Lily & Spice, as they stated, why not to give it a try?
The result here is quite different, though. The opening has a strong vanilla (or what is seems to be a vanilla key accord-like scent), that leaves almost immediatelly, or better: it dissolves but stays there, like a humid and warm steam, embracing the next, pungent and gentle at the same time hyraceum (this is what I can detect and recognize most, or at least is seems to be so to my nose); the whole fragrance stays this way for a long time on my skin, static but pulsating and fragrant; hence a "charogne", right?
The pleasant vanillic smell returns and dominates the formula, this time with a less sickening nuance: it becomes pretty pleasant, as if that vanilla was a gourmand wannabe (yeah, that's weird), if you imagine it;
it touches the gourmand boundary without thinking of going beyond that, like a cloud of dusty dark sugar.
The name itself shouldn't be alarming on its own, but I can see where the brand wanted to go with this.

Summer dream
A very beautiful summer and spring scent. A beautiful citric note but there is still something after unswar fine leather, cardamom and selected flowers. I think that's a Terre d'Hermes hairdresser. There's nothing wrong with him

Bohemian Blouses
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

A very nice floral perfume, it is sweet, spicy and resinous, but it makes me too feminine for my taste. The performance is moderate.
