Remember Liz?
This is a very boring, old-fashioned scent with absolutely no new ideas or inspirations. It starts off with a blast of orange-peel giving way to a whole bunch of flowers - the effect is screechy and muddled. There's some rose, somewhere, but not in the centre, there is some jasmine, but not well integrated. I've smelled this a thousand times before. "Beautiful" by Estee Lauder springs to my mind, or even "Trésor" and then I think of the Elizabeth Taylor Fragrances. Rubys? Emeralds? Elizabeth did that before, didn't she?
For such a high price-tag, one could and should expect more than a dull and unpleasant flower-cocktail. Nice bottle, though.

The Perfumic Equivalent of Madonna
My journey through the Life Threads line of La Prairie continues today with RUBY, which, as odd as this may sound, reminds me a lot of Madonna.

Madonna made a name for herself by successfully embracing the post-modern prioritization of packaging to product. Madonna was everything to everyone at one time or another. Virgin, whore, mistress, mother, wife, children's book writer, erotic photo exhibitionist, would-be perfumer, philanthropist to Africa, singer, stripper, artiste, model, film star, tatter-clothed Bohemian, English lady, French slut, Jewish mystic, divorcee cougar: Madonna has done it all, and some faction of society has always been ready to run after her salivating along the way.

So why does RUBY remind me of Madonna? Because this perfume attempts to be all things to all people but cannot be pinned down. The notes seems random, as though there is no method behind the madness. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. A waft here of one vague iconic perfume memory; a waft there of another. Everything and nothing all at the same time!

In the end, I do not think that RUBY is bad at all, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out what it intends to be!
