Loukhoum
First bittersweet, then smoky.
One more breath from you, then I'll gasp.
What's wrong with me - do I buy?
Yes, I'll buy you!
You'll stay with me all day.
You don't run away, yet you're not near.
The addiction to you makes me so weak.
Loukhoum & what it does to me.

Addiction factor present, unfortunately!
Actually I don't like sweet scents, not my style at all! But this one has an attraction that I can hardly resist, but only for me alone, my husband gets a headache from it. I enjoy lying on the sofa in the evening and spraying just a tiny bit on my wrist, smelling it every now and then and feeling carefree light, almost like I'm floating. Never would I wear the scent in public, reminds me that I fancied the Bee Gees in the late 1960s, but only secretly, because actually the Stones were hip....

NASAL BRAINWASHING!!!
No, no, no"...
I don't like too much vanilla
and
"No, no, no"...
I also don't want any more sugar-sweet gourmands!

OUT -LOCK -ENDE!!!!

No- really now!

But then you come fluttering into my house
- just so-
without me consciously granting you admission- you perfume sin of all perfume sins!
And what are you doing?
You're about to start pissing me off and doing nose brainwashing.
Fuck you:
"Smell this! I'm mega- delicious and seductive! You'll love me whether you like it or not!"
Are you a witch? Or what's the matter?

You!!!
- almost on the teeth painful, damn mega-sweet, penetrating fragrance...
I can't like you-- I don't want to like you...
get the fuck out of here! I don't want anything to do with you. I'm not a girl screaming for candy!
Tzzzz...
who do you think you are?
Do you think you could just step into my life and convert me in my aversion to extremely sweet scents?
Think you wicked bitch!
It almost makes me nauseous when I smell you.

Seriously, you're too much for me!

I don't even have the chance to break through your penetrance during the day.
You just stay where you are!
No matter whether I spray you on the skin or my clothes
- You suck on me like a leech that can't be satisfied.
And I only take a timid sprayer!!!
I'm not stupid - the whole sample bag smelled like you!
Yes- don't you want to be quieter or even walk?
Do you love me so much or have you nothing else to do?
Now leave me alone and let me breathe a little bit...
Sorry,
i have to go out on the balcony and get some fresh air,
You perfumed penetrance!
Can't we take a break?
UUUFFFFF!

Okay...all right!

Oh my gosh, there you are again!

HALLLLOOOO- may I say something?
Man- You're a cheeky one!
PSSSTTT- Quiet now!!!

Loukhoum?!
Bite me hard,
suck me out,
intoxicate me,
i'm so annoyed you can only annoy me,
put me in a coma-like state,
let me dream,
how I can take an infinite amount of Lokum,
without getting tired!
Let me dream,
how I walk through the candy country and it snows icing sugar...
let me be the sugar fairy,
that takes her surroundings to the sugar dreamland!
And not only
in HERE AND NOW
but for days on end...
YOU magically beautiful,
penetrating scented brainwashes!!!

Admit it-
You're a witch!

Two sides of the same coin
Recently I was allowed to test a small filling of this fragrance. The first impression was: sweet, almond, warm and cuddly. Christmas time in the house Lexa, the biscuits bake in the oven, the hands are dusted with flour, it runs Christmas music... Unfortunately I seem to have forgotten the time in this cuddly bubble, do I smell burnt cookies? Something unpleasantly stinging develops on my skin and I just want to wash off this scent, although it started so promising! I left the little sample to my mother, who also likes to try out scents. A few days later I'm with her, when I come in I smell rice pudding with plums and cinnamon and I'm already looking forward until I notice that she smells so wonderful herself. It's the same scent and it's just delicious to eat on it. It's a shame those grades didn't develop with me. Then I must go now probably more often times at my mummy schnuppern :)

Marzipan Almond Childhood Dream fragrance
This is my first comment about a fragrance that I have become completely addicted to. Loukhoum was a blind gift, never sniffed the scent before, only the description and the many great comments to this scent, led me to wish me this scent.
It was not love on the first Riecher, the enormous sweetness against one strikes, frightened me nevertheless only a little, but again and again my nose went to the wrist.
I can't say what hawthorn smells like, I actually perceive marzipan on delicious almonds, (which I also like to eat) that alone is a beguiling scent, later the scent becomes softer for me, what I attribute to the rose and vanilla
Woods creep in and do not let the scent sink into sticky sweetness.
I don't use this great scent every day, but not because I don't want to smell it every day, but because I'm worried it won't be so great anymore! Every time I use it, I close my eyes, take a deep breath and remember how my mother made marzipan balls herself, catch me up and let me dream!
I hope that this love of fragrance will last for a long time!!:))
The durability is with me with approx. 10 hrs

Very Very Good
Addictive rose candy, sticky and overwhelmingly sweet, just like the confection it is named after. I believe this scent is the best example of Turkish Delight scents out there. It has monster sillage and can be a little too much, but the combination of almond and rose with the sticky sweetness is completely addictive. It is powdery in the sense of powdered sugar, not like talcum powder.

I love all loukhoum scents (Lutens, Ava Luxe, Montale) as well as the other Mecheri Loukhoums (Soir, Poudree) but the original is still the most satisfying. If it is too sweet and potent for you, Guerlain's Le Plus Beau Jour de Ma Vie is a good alternative: there is no rose in it and the sugared almond note is toned way down.

Still, this Loukhoum is a beautiful example of what a perfume is supposed to be in my opinion: original, overwhelming, vintage. I have the old pink bottle with the white top and I just love the overall presentation and the scent.

The One that Almost Got Away
It was new year's day 2013 and I decided to blind buy this perfume. I know what you all must be thinking, but I had a coupon! My excuse and I'm sticking to it. (Min New York btw, got it for only $82!). Anyways, when it finally arrived in it's adorable pink bubble gum looking bottle I sprayed away...and just didn't know what to do. The bottle looked so cute, the notes looked just right, but that baby powder syrup was making me just cringgeee.
I actually put it up for swap.
Although when I was talking to a friend about why I wanted to trade it away, I gave loukhoum a second chance and it clicked.
Loukhoum is a super almond powder scented with what smells like cherry syrup, roses, and honey. It's dribbly ooey gooey sweet but so super powdery. Whatever it was that I imagined it smelling like when I bought it really didn't match my expectations at all. Even though loukhoum wasn't what I was expecting it was still great!
Loukhoum lasts forever, the silage is thick. If you want heavy, heavy powder with some intense syrup honey loukhoum style sweetness, you will not have to look another place!
Later on I tried loukhoum eau poudree and ironically that smelt a lot more like what I was expecting this one to smell like. If you haven't smelt loukhoum by kieko before and you are mentally comparing it to be like white musk libertine by the body shop, forgetta about it!! This is 10x heavier I promise.
Intense, rich, powder, loukhoum, syrup, are all things I would tag this fragrance with.
Side note, I hate the bottle change. I think it looks like batman tripping on acid.

Delicious, but Not A Summer Scent
Something in this is not sitting right with me today. I have tested my sample in several different environments- it is typically cozy powdery, sweet and nutty during the cold winter months and early spring. This is a mother's kiss a lover's hug during those chilly months. Its beautiful powdery musky base is soothing and its edible nutty sweetness is delectable when it mingles with cool air, dried leaves and smoky fireplaces in Autumn. There is a creamy aspect courtesy of hawthorne that stimulates the same response as a down feather comforter, a cashmere sweater or a puppy's ear against your nose. Irresistible in Winter! However, in Summer, I do not recommend this one, it has become a bit too cloying, a little aggravating and not nearly carefree enough for hot sultry nights for sure, I will test it again when the weather cools. At the moment though, it feels as if I bathed in cotton candy and almond nougat and now I stand alone, with a tummy ache staring at the sticky fake amusement park covered with melted candy which is closed for the evening cleaning crew.

Soft Pink loukhoum
Beautiful! The composition is Perfectly blended. I would recommend this for those who love gourmand powdery type fragrance. Its powdery yes, sweet, soft and ultimately snuggly. Its like candied roses, sugared almonds while the vanilla softly brings them together. But it is more than this, there is a whisper of insence, which i think is the woody & hawthorn notes. I just adore this very much, i cant help but think of the colour "Pink", just like the bottle.
