Cultivated boredom with Nivea genes
A unisex scent called LUI is strange! According to Guerlain's homepage, this is a tribute to a perfume called LIU, which in 1929 was supposed to fuel the emancipation of women olfactorically. Today one wants to indulge in gender neutrality, that is how it is written there. This fragrance is said to be male and female at the same time and is described to me as flowery, woody and spicy. I don't really smell anything of leather, but I don't like that in its distinctive form anyway.
Now these are one marketing promises and the other is my feeling. That doesn't exactly yell "hooray" when I sniff LUI, but it doesn't yell "yuck" either! A flowery note (the carnation) can be clearly smelled and stands in a gentle way for the female touch. Pear is supposed to be in it, too, even if not listed here. And benzoin resin is supposed to smell very sensual and vanilla. Alone: I don't know exactly! ;-)
For a perfume at any rate, LUI is relatively thin, and even if I can't say anything really negative about it, it suits a woman better for me. And it has something of a "skin cream x-treme", at least that's my association. I thought long and hard about what the scent reminded me of. They are indeed skin care products, which should not smell unpleasant at all, but also not striking. A small dash of spice and sweetness, which appear after about half an hour, and we are there! :-)
For 130 Euro à 50 ml however one (n) can give oneself this smell in my opinion confidently. He, LUI, is supposed to be something special in the Guerlain price structure, and that's definitely not what this perfume is. Suitable for everyday use and pleasant: yes! Challenging and dazzling: by no means! I don't mean to badmouth LUI here, but I will only put on the scent myself if I don't want to attract attention and still want to smell somehow fluffy, creamy and sensual.
