Like a cool walk in the woods
I got to know the scent quite by chance during a visit to a thermal bath. Just as I was on my way out, completely relaxed and grounded, the relief of the friendly cashier entered the foyer and took off her jacket. And that's when it hit me in passing. A breath of winter, cold, forest, meadows, moss and rain. Completely carried away I stopped and let the impression work. Seldom had I noticed such an extraordinary scent on another person. The question about the scent was quickly asked and in joyful anticipation of finding this perfume I marched resolutely to the local perfumery a few days later.
It is a very wonderful place, the walls are decorated with rich wooden ornaments and panels and radiate the feeling of unshakability.
At the wooden roundel in the middle I also found very quickly a lady who looked as if she was the queen of this small kingdom. Tall, elegant and obviously extremely knowledgeable in her field.
So I asked her about the incomparable scent I had only encountered a few days before. Knowingly she smiled and led me to a single wooden shelf, in which the rather simple flacons of the brand Lalique had gathered.
With an almost solemn expression on her face she sprayed a splash on my wrist.
Quite different from what I expected. A flowery, powdery-sweet fragrance began to envelop me. Pleased to meet you. But miles away from the forest echo that had grabbed my attention. Interpreting my look correctly, the elegant lady only said: "Wait and see. They smell best on them again in an hour or two. Then they'll know if it's her scent. Which is something very special. Not everyone can carry it. "
Then she looks at me critically "But maybe you do. You just wait and see... The smell finds you."
A little confused, I left the shop. Again and again my wrist wandered to my nose, but the sweet one seemed not to want to give way and a little disappointment wanted to spread.
Then, actually two hours later, something happened to the scent. The spicy, woody note, which I had previously only perceived very hidden in the background, suddenly seemed to take over the helm and put everything into a new context. Suddenly the scent clicked together and everything fitted.
Bought it shortly after and meanwhile I am on the third bottle.
Although I appreciate this fragrance especially on warm days, it brings me back the cool freshness of winter and the wet forest floor.
I can warmly recommend this fragrance, but the elegant lady from the perfume shop is right... it finds a... and maybe, if it fits, it'll be a love for life. Anyway, it's hard to flirt with that scent... He wants a whole. He got me

Unusually beautiful
PdL recently moved in with me.
A blind purchase... again but this smell irritated me so much so I just did it.
Some describe him as a powdery flatterer with a cool rose aura.
The others call him very peppery with masculine elements if not too masculine. Everything that I do not really like and yet I had to have him.
Just before he arrived, I was sure this fragrance would not be for me.

Then the big day: sprayed on and ohhhh what is that?
A soapy and at the same time airy freshness spreads. Like freshly washed laundry. I smell citric echoes. Masculine? Somehow yes and somehow no.
After a few minutes it gets a little sweeter and very powdery and woody.
Still I perceive the soap but so incredibly beautifully merged with the other elements, so it's not at all
seems strict.
I can guess Rose but not superficially.
Also the pepper stays in my background.
After approx. 20 minutes it is soft, woody, powdery, fresh and tart and incredibly warm at the same time.
Patchouli gives him that certain something but so nice and discreet that you can only guess at him.

Shelf life absolutely ok. I noticed him well yesterday (a splash on the back of my hand) for 6 hours and the radiance is just as beautiful. In the beginning, he almost knocks me over with a little spray.

With PdL I became really happy.
I never thought I'd like it that much.

For those who prefer flowery sweet and even vanilla, this will be nothing. Perles is exactly the opposite.
I could say that now but I am the best example that it could be :)

And yes man can wear it too and still it is incredibly feminine for me.
It depends on the carrier and what he makes of it.

Perles I love you :)

if only there were no powderiness ..
According to the descriptions I had expected a clinking, cool ice queen scent, which brings a nice unpredictability thanks to ISO. I am a big ISO fan and was very disappointed when the first sprayer wrapped me in an almost unbearably powdery sweetness. Probably owed it to the iris? After a few hours my unbearable powderiness fades away and finally the shimmering, ringing qualities come to light. Rose and patchouli alternate, unite and float flickering around, glistening and pure, seductive and unapproachable. That's what you wished for! Unfortunately also the powder comes out again and again, which is why I will probably not become friends with the smell unfortunately.

Glass bead game
Wow, he's hot! I had been looking forward to a flowery-spicy fragrance, with iris and lots of Bulgarian rose and beautiful earthy patchouli. But I didn't expect this sharpness that this perfume greets me with. But I like surprises and I am curious what this EdP will offer me. The peppery beginning of our acquaintance is quite unusual and promising.

In my search for a fragrance for the autumn, in which rose and patchouli should play a major role, a perfumer Perles de Lalique recommended me - a perfume that in her opinion was criminally underestimated.

My curiosity was aroused. It just happened to be some women's day or something. And 100 ml Perles de Lalique to have a file € 29,19. Including € 4,99 postage. Now or never? Now. Now. At this price you can also risk a blind purchase.

The white wrapper's got something. And only the iced glass bottle with the pearl cords on the four edges. This looks stylish, noble, modern, unusual and refined. A successful synthesis of simplicity and elegance. You can already guess what awaits you.

I'm not waiting for the right time to open a scent I bought. That's got to be now. Who knows what tomorrow will be. So down with the cellophane and tested.

The unexpected peppery sharpness has only cleared the way - like these Hell's Angels, who in Falco Superstar Amadeus's music video "Amadeus" protect Amadeus from his fans who seek too much closeness.
Instead of Amadeus, Amadeus, however, a velvety beauty appears: a fully flowered, deep dark red Bulgarian rose. Yes, a rose. This is not a lovely, tender rose, but a proud rose - noble and a little melancholic.

The perfumista warned me. You have to like Iso E Super to love Perles de Lalique. No problem. No problem. It is not my first Iso E Super, Rosa Rossa von Guerlain is also in my collection and is by no means a wallflower there. I like to wear the pleasing rose scent very much.
But Perles de Lalique is already another caliber. He doesn't make it that easy to like him. He's not an Everybody's Darling. He doesn't want to be. It's not easy to get to know him. But that's what makes him so interesting and attractive. It is not an "Aha, pear, apple, lemongrass" scent that can be identified immediately and then classified satisfied. Mission accomplished! It is idiosyncratic, sophisticated, somehow abstract and therefore not tangible. He's got something dazzling, transparent, ethereal. These are all attributes that you wouldn't associate with an autumn fragrance. At least I think of precious woods, earthy notes and heavy sweetness. Just at Patchouli, Cashmeran and Rose.
But who even says that pearls are a fragrance for autumn? I do. Because this mixture is - at all with its initial sharpness - much too tart and strong for a summer or even spring scent. And for the winter it can be a little sweeter because of me gladly.

I would call les Perles the air sign among fragrances - a mercury, mobile, iridescent, iridescent. So distant and almost nonsensical one rarely experiences a rose. This is probably due to the fact that the fragrance looks quite cool and dry overall, but for me it is not a fresh fragrance. Only late, when rose, iris and patchouli combine with cashmeran, does the fragrance become softer, sweeter, more sensual and warmer, more conciliatory, so to speak.

If Perles de Lalique were a human being, he would be intellectual, complicated, elitist, perhaps even eccentric. I'd like him. Even if he is sometimes exhausting and gives up puzzles. One thing Perles de Lalique is certainly not: boring.

What fascinates me about this fragrance is that I never feel it the same. Sometimes it reminds me of dried flowers, then I feel again a fragile aloofness and sensibility that makes me think of ice or glass figures.

He wouldn't be my first choice for business appointments. In addition, it radiates too little security and resistance. Privately I find him attractive, because he is changeable and remains exciting. I could imagine that he interacts with the skin of the wearer and behaves like the gemstones so popular some time ago, which indicate the respective state of mind by changing their color.

For me, Lalique is a women's fragrance - not because he's a bit moody, men are, too, but because he seems to me to strengthen qualities that are - perhaps wrongly - attributed more to women. He is seductive, but does not like to commit himself and has his secrets. And he surprises because he always seems different. This makes it difficult to assign concrete associations to him. Maybe he's also reinforcing his own mood. Then the rose is sometimes dark and a little sad - but always elegant, discreet and noble, even if somehow distanced.

What seems extraordinary to me is that I often hardly notice the scent while wearing it, while others still notice it. But this should be typical for Iso E Super.

Perles de Lalique is certainly not mainstream, but rather a very special and for many people perhaps a minority programme that needs getting used to and that you have to like. I like it. Maybe because it's so unfathomable.

Anyone who finds glass bead games attractive will soon be best friend with this exciting fragrance.
It's definitely worth getting to know him.
However, I would wish for a longer shelf life. But maybe it lasts longer with others.

With Patchouli N' Roses by Reminiscence and Perles de Lalique by Lalique I have now found two different, excellent autumn scents that will accompany me safely into the winter.

Synthetic Magic
I'm a self-confessed ISO junkie now. I have the Lehmann variation "MOL intens", pure ISO thinned down to EdP strength, and these are my olfactory rescue drops.

If nothing works, if I absolutely don't know how I should smell, if I don't necessarily want to smell, but just want to smell good (meetings, plane), if I still can't decide, while some floors below the last subway rolls in, which could bring me to an appointment in time, in short, in acute perfume panic, I reach for MOL - a spray is enough and I'm back on the track, the smell focuses me, he norded me, everything will be fine.

ISO is a molecule that doesn't even act as if it smells like something specific. It is a fragrance without a role model in nature and it has extremely wonderful properties. It is apparently difficult for some to smell, can - in strong dilution - make fragrances more floating and transparent, does not change while wearing, has - at least on paper and clothing - an outstanding durability. On the surface it smells slightly mineral and of warm dry wood and light incense, but that's not it, it's it: There is something unheard of, something unexpected, something completely new: ISO silver plates the air, vibrates softly, rings like silver bells, fragrant fairy dust, in short: synthetic magic.

And now I stumble across the pearls...

80 % ISO is contained in the pearls, at least! someone rejoices further down that the scent can't commit itself, many write, this uncertain, vague, incomprehensible, noncommittal floating, therefore ISO-typical is often sung about or mourned and one of my favourite commentators hymns.

I MUST test the scent...

... which at first turned out to be unexpectedly difficult, because: Fragrances of Lalique are searched in vain at the usual sources. Douglas, Müller, the usual department store perfume departments, nobody's running Lalique.

Unfortunately, every now and then I lack the mental strength for a ramble through the meanwhile rather niche-oriented temple columns of the house of Oberpollinger, where woman (in the case of me, clearly older and let's call it: Unhappily proportioned) sees herself exposed to a superiority of highly perfected influencer clones (dream lips, 2-meter eyelashes, perfect make-up, phenotype Southern Europe / Asia Minor, each finger as long as my forearm - where did these girls only get these limbs from???).
But the weekend before last I was in a good mood and sufficiently armed and searched and found the Lalique-Counter, where I could spray a sufficient amount of "les Perles" on a paper strip and later on my arm and each of my ISO-addicted cells screamed: "DAS! WILL! I AM! GOT IT!!! NOW!!!".

The soft woody ISO note with its specific shimmer is immediately there - it is and remains the never changing general tone to which all other fragrance colours match and classify themselves. The pepper, usually slightly quarrelsome and rebellious, makes a servant very well-behaved and immediately clears the stage for a rather cool and discreet rose. This fluffy fragrant rose and the transparent ISO are a weightlessly floating dream couple, made for each other. For a while they dance around each other, sometimes I smell rose, sometimes only ISO, typical also for the further process: Again and again I don't smell the one, the other already, long ago disappeared believed appears again, that is exciting and also not every day the same. While yesterday the Patchouly, dry and with a pronounced Indian shop character, seemed to clearly dominate the heart note, today I smell little of it, but all the more of the dry warm and delicate sweet base note of Cashmeran, also such a synthetic magician.

Knowing how strong the external effect of ISO is even when you think you haven't noticed it for hours, I resist the temptation to spray the scent all too often.

That's a good thing: Although I used "les Perles" yesterday morning and then didn't spray it during the day and although I would have sworn in the afternoon that I had been completely unscented for some time, my husband didn't greet me in the evening with any loving words, but with "Oh, ISO!".

Fade into you
You live your life, you go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
COLORS YOUR EYES WITH WHAT`S NOT THERE.

I, confessing Iso -E- Super Blind par excellence, subilfetishist with a tendency to overdramatize things that don't really exist, apparently..., have to tell stories of lust, desire, humility and beauty about this fragrance without actually addressing these topics.

That's exactly the language of this fragrance that should have helped Lalique to world fame, but since most women in the western hemisphere prefer to diesel in with "La vie est belle" and similarly gruesome olfactory wrecking pears instead, the sophistication of this composition is probably not really noticed by many. Fortunately, because Nathalie Lorson's work does not run the risk of being dulled by omnipresence and the most beautiful thing: the fragrance in this ugly bottle remains affordable. A price-performance miracle. A bargain measured by the impact on at least parts of the fragrance market and of course on my very own epicentre of sensual perception.

Now I have already anticipated my enthusiasm for this diabolical hermaphrodite of subtle eroticism and almost cheap-pornish pick-up, but perhaps I would be allowed to tune in a little hymn of praise by craftsmen, because for me this fragrance is the fragrance that even Geza Schön with all his Escentric Molecules variations never managed to achieve. And that's what I say as an absolute fan of the Escentric 01 variant, which hasn't become my signature for fun. Whether the fulminant amount of 7-acetyl, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8-octahydro-1,1,6,7-tetramethyl naphthalene is actually the secret recipe or whether its magic is based more on the fact that Lorson has planted the flickering (Bulgarian) and slightly vulgar rose in the lap of a rather classic base, which is more familiar from men's fragrances, I cannot judge.

But in all the flickering and wrestling um´s mere survival so often push the cards under the base and head that a man gets dizzy, because we men can't live with indecision at all. Nevertheless, we are only too happy to succumb to it and let ourselves be blinded and enmeshed by the illusion of a utopia, idea and wishful thinking produced by our own brains. Whether it's sexual or socio-cultural. In this special case, I like to lie with women who can do a little magic, express themselves as unclearly as possible and leave plenty of room for speculation. I have a similar situation with social ideas. I guess that's why I've become a romantically glorified Marxist. And Marx formulated his ideas for me just as little as the lust of this fragrance was actually made for you or me. This scent is just an illusion. Trained to send vague images into the emotional ether. Cryptic, horny and full of riddles.

I perceive the fragrance as clear rosy, flowery and transparent light. The strong base of vetiver, oakmoss and patchouli would allow for other images in this transparency, but for me it is only the magic hat in which a sweet rose pollinated by the iris is up to no good. They disappear at will to reappear out of nowhere in different dynamics. The perfect fragrance for Trinity who fights her way through the Matrix with Neo and uses the illusion to send a sign into the world. A fragrance can't do more than that. COLORS YOUR EYES WITH WHAT`S NOT THERE.

My Immergeher
Perles was a real blind buy. I had to strike on the basis of the pyramid and the favourable price. And what can I say? He's become an absolute favorite of mine.

The first sprayer made me shy away a little. Medically somehow... but I was prepared for that on the basis of the comments. I want to anticipate that: Meanwhile I can fully enjoy this prelude. After about three minutes he (now unfortunately) disappeared and a wonderful peppery rose scent remains. Woody and unsweet. Like a cool breeze in the morning.

Certain occasions are not necessary for him. He goes anywhere, anytime. It's the fragrance I get the most compliments on. It was bought in total 6 times in my circle of friends. That didn't happen to me with any scent.

Thank God I'm one of those people who can strongly perceive Iso-E-Super. I am completely addicted to this fragrance and have a little sympathy for those who can't smell it.

Durability and Sillage are also phenomenal. Even more... times less. That's what makes this fragrance so exciting for me

A phenomenon!
Now I have to get hynical, maybe even a little pathetic. It's not my way usually. So maybe I'll try to describe what I smell when I wear "Perles" first.

The fragrance begins very fresh and almost impetuous with the note that some describe as medicinal. I find the prelude very pleasant. It has an ethereal note, which for me, however, does not arouse any association with cold remedies, but reminds me of a morning walk through a eucalyptus forest. One simply has the feeling of being able to breathe deeply and freely.

I must perhaps say in advance that in my perception the fragrance has no classical course, but that all the notes flash up again and again, just as the fragrance as a whole appears stronger and weaker and this over many hours, because the shelf life is quite good. In one of the previous comments, this phenomenon was described as "meandering". I really liked this expression in this context.

What else do I smell? Rose pepperwood. In varying proportions. More rose, more pepper, less wood. Iris, patchouli and other notes that could identify finer noses I can't tell. However, the initial freshness flashes through again and again until the end and can even be sniffed at the clothes the next day.

Why is this fragrance a phenomenon? Because I can't imagine that at any point he might not fit in or bother anyone. I once blasphemed somewhere about the attribute "Immergeher" and don't want to use the term here either. "Perles" doesn't always work, it always fits.

At minus 10 degrees as at 35 degrees, at any time of year, in any weather and at any temperature. To jeans and T-shirt like to the black velvet dress. Morning, noon, evening, night. To the opera, to work, to housework, to dates, to interviews, to sports. For weddings and funerals. How does he do that?
"For me, "Perles" also suits every age and is definitely an interesting option for men, too. However, those who are decidedly into floral-sweet fragrances will not get their money's worth. A certain weakness for clear, rather cool and a little more distanced fragrances should be brought along, but then "Perles" is worth a test in any case.

A very special scent ....
So between me and the pearl, it was not directly love on the first nose, all the more then on the 2nd
love
It started with me testing two Lalique perfumes right in the store. One arm for the Perles and on the other arm the Reve also from Lalique. Uiiiii I thought at first what is that ? The other smelled the same very flowery and I liked directly better. So again at Perles smelled and thought again ..hmmm he has such an own note, slightly fresh, somehow very special. Then I asked first my better half for opinion and the smell was directly commented with a " wooooooooow " which is great. So I also sniffed again and thought, yes I like him now or not ? I was unsure.

We then continued to stroll and hung alternately so times he and times I with our noses on my arm ^^. He always with steadily rising enthusiasm and I, yes so I actually liked the fragrance more and more. Sometimes I wonder what people think when they watch us. I think it looks pretty funny ;-) . Give me your arm and I'll give it back and keep it up...

I think I spent half the evening sniffing again and again and more and more I liked the smell, I couldn't get away from it anymore and it got better and better. Slightly addicted I felt ^^.

I can also describe it badly but it is as different as the other scents. Sensual and interesting I would probably like to express it, slightly fresh with a peppery and spicy note, I think it is also that makes the fragrance so incredibly interesting. Normally I like the sweet fragrances but I don't find the sweet here at all and yet I like it so incredibly well. Wrapped by this unbelievable prelude, the iris slowly comes along (my favorite girlfriend) and gives the fragrance another kick. Summarized I would describe him as sensual, exciting, different and he triggers a kind of scuffle addiction in me. I could sniff at myself for hours if I wore it.

It was even so crazy that I turned on the air conditioning even more during the car journey, because by the air the smell rose again and again super into my nose. This has never happened to me before *GRINS*

It is also worth mentioning his unbelievable Sillage. In my office, he directly stimulated a hot disskusion, so to speak. I came to the office and sometime it started, what smells here, do you smell that too, somebody has such a delicious perfume on it, I do not smell anything, but smell again, here now again, again you smell that ... (I had just walked past ;-) ) ..... at the beginning I only listened and amused myself internally about it, because I knew that I am it ;-) and thought so wow, you little pearl, you provide here quite beautifully for excitement. The whole thing went on for a while and because the pearl left the others no peace, I was also uncovered by sniffing route from the colleagues ^^ . Interestingly, the opinions were divided and everyone was allowed to smell me *G*, weeks later I have worn it again and even there my colleague smelled the smell already in the hallway of the office ;-). Came to the door and said, hach haste again the smell on it ...um yes I have again :-). So long text but summarized a superduper Sillage and I find it also so great if I perceive him the day in the office and the smell is present and to strengthen is the air conditioning in the car to recommend :-D

I am really happy that I have tested this fragrance and generally, I like the Lalique fragrances very much.
He has shown me that not every fragrance must be sweet, he has wrapped me in his spell and does not let me go anymore . Simply a wonderful, elegant, sensual, exciting, extraordinary fragrance and highly recommended.

Best regards ;-)

Wow! Wow! Wow!
Today it came and it's kneeling down! First I notice something hot, pepper and something that smells of disinfection, so violent. After only 5-10 minutes, this woody powderiness develops and continues to intensify. After 2 hours it reminds me a little of Encre Noir, only softer. And... I smell incense that the description says is not in there. I have been wearing the fragrance for almost 4 hours now and it is still very noticeable. I find Perles Lalique stunning and it's nothing I've had before. I think I'll test myself with other Lalique scents! Thanks for fixing it...:-))

Wonderful
If I'm commenting on a women's perfume, it must be something special.
Lalique herself has never disappointed me either.

This fragrance is also a wonderful cuddly bear. Fresh too, though. Wonderful in the whole composition.

I find it hard to smell anything out of here, but I can recognize the iris, my favorite girlfriend in perfumes, but it's very different from men's fragrances, for example.
The freshness comes from the bergamot and the pepper, that's how far I can get, then it's just a beautiful scent of women, which you can wear in summer, on summer evenings, and which simply invites you to feel good.

It is cuddly and oscillates between powdery and flowery, never too sweet, never too flowery and never too powdery, everything somehow harmonious and delicious.

The Sillage is also in order and keep it also does very neatly.

I, as a man, can only recommend him to the ladies, so that woman is guaranteed nothing wrong.

I can keep sniffing at her when she's wearing the scent. That's quite wonderful.

A bipolar scent
With a comment on Perles de Lalique I have been torturing myself for a long time, because it is very difficult for me to classify this fragrance somewhere.
Perles de Lalique is somewhere between peppery and powdery, between flowery and herbaceous, between woody and fresh, between sweet and earthy.
Is he more masculine or more feminine? I don't know.
It refreshes me in summer and warms me in winter, it can wake me up on a warm morning and also bring me down after a hard day.
Does he now seem attractive or unapproachable? I don't know.
It is a cuddly scent and still a freshness kick.
Perles de Lalique is timeless and yet very modern. It is a fragrance for a special mood and still an "Immergeher".
Do I hate him or do I love him? Definitely the latter!

clear, cool, refreshing and a bit beguiling
René Lalique: When I hear this name, I immediately think of the beautiful glass, which I look at again and again with great joy, as a flacon also likes to touch.
Be it the great perfume flacons, each a small piece of jewellery, or the wonderful glass vases in the style of Art Deco. Some of them can be admired in our museum Bröhan.
Karl H. Bröhan donated his unique Art Nouveau collection to the city of Berlin on the occasion of his 60th birthday in 1981.
Since 1973 she was in a villa in Dahlem; but already in October 1983 she moved to the vicinity of Charlottenburg Palace; there she has one of the old Kavaliershäuser as her domicile - a whole house: dedicated only to the art of Art Nouveau!
These vases always attract me when I'm there. Together with the glass artworks of Emile Galle they inhabit a special showcase; they can be admired from almost all sides.

Many of the Lalique fragrances are characterized by exceptional clarity. They are reminiscent of cool, rippling water or, like "Perles de Lalique", of a curtain of fine glass beads that sounds lightly in the breeze!

Actually, a heavy rose scent, perfumed with bergamot, together with the always somewhat delicate iris nuance should be anything but light and refreshing.
But probably a good pinch of black pepper will make you feel cool.
The earthy heaviness of oakmoss and the always a little earthy moultness of vetiver, set an extremely successful antipole to the flowering beauties of the first fragrance phase.
Iris root and a good portion of Patchouli (always welcome to me) are married to noble cashmere wood.
Cashmere wood: This scented work of art alone invites you to dream; symbolizes luxury and delicacy and gives every creation a sensual and seductive touch.
Together with the spice of the aphrodisiac patchouli, combined with rose and lily, this almost irresistible fragrance painting results.

So "Perles de Lalique" is especially for warm summer days and of course also seductively beautiful summer nights a pleasant, although slightly erotic companion.
My shelf life is average, but it is also a pleasure to spray a little freshness.
Annoying or even obtrusive is not this fragrance creature spreading fresh coolness.

"Perles de Lalique" is thus a beautiful summer scent; not too flat and meaningless, but suitable for many occasions.
The price/performance ratio makes it even more likeable.

I am very happy that a dear perfumista sent me a small selection of these clear Lalique fragrances. Thank you, my dear!

Iso-E Chypre
Scentrack:
Ella Fitzgerald – Wait 'Till You See Him (De-Phazz Remix)

Rose, jasmine and musk give some classic feeling around this fragrance, while pepper and lots of Iso E Super ultra-contemporary touch, resulting in pronounced and balanced duality. High dose of Iso E Super is the reason of the unisex character of Perles de Lalique, but I really admire the hidden female sensuality of this beautiful fragrance. Clean, easy to wear, refined, sensual and lovely Lalique’s treasure.

Strong Peppery Wood--with a touch of rose
When I first acquired a bottle of PERLES DE LALIQUE, I overapplied it and completely overdosed on it, to the point where it took me more than a year to recover and muster up the courage to try it again. This stuff is very strong and potent. Do I like it?

I have a similar reaction to many of the Lalique perfumes, which always seem slightly unbalanced to me. As a result, it is very easy to overdo them and very difficult to hit on just the proper application. On lucky days, they can be really wonderful. On less lucky days, they can seem overbearing and tiresome. Another good example is FLORABELLA. Overapplied, it's a sort of suffocating orchid nightmare. Underapplied it seems rather boring, just a humdrum floral. When all of the stars are correctly aligned, however, it is a very nice perfume. But I digress...

Well, not really, because the same thing happens with PERLES DE LALIQUE. There is something just slightly off-kilter in this kooky peppery, woody, masculine rose perfume. Maybe that's the clue: this is at least unisex and it may indeed be the perfect floral perfume for men--better than L'Artisan Parfumeur VOLEUR DE ROSES, why? Because it actually does contain some detectable rose. Still, to my nose, the woody quality (it actually smells like rosewood, though that note is not listed in the hierarchy) in PERLES is much stronger than the floral component. And then there's the pepper. This is nothing like the harsh and super-synthetic pepper spray known as Marc Jacobs BANG. But there is quite a dose of pepper in this woody floral. So do I like it?

I guess that I can say that I respect PERLES DE LALIQUE. It has a somewhat stern quality which I associate with the house of Parfumerie Générale. It also reminds me a bit of Etro ETRA. These are of course compliments to those who appreciate PG and Etro. Alas, respect is not the same as love.

Peppered roses
It is no secret that for a long time I've been searching for the perfect rose scent. I knew I wouldn't love a rose soliflore, there had to be other components, but who would have thought that pepper and patchouli would be its perfect counterparts.

Perles de Lalique is like heaven to me. It's a rich, tarty red rose amidst darker, masculine accords of pepper, patchouli, incense, woods and a hint of soap.

It's dark yet angelic, with a touch of strangeness. It smells like something you'd expect from Andy Tauer, just perhaps not as strong and bold. Both Perles de Lalique and Incense Rose share some similarities.

Lalique isn't entirely mainstream, yet it's not niche either. The quality of this scent however, begs to differ. It's just so warming and unique that I can't help falling head over heels in love with it.

It can be spicy at times, and a little sharp but I like that about it, it has presence. The scent is also dry, reminding me of rose potpourri. There are so many different dimensions to this fragrance.

The longevity and sillage are to die for, sending wafts of it around you like a cloud for the whole day. Another bonus is the rather affordable price tag which definitely took me by surprise. I managed to find a giftset with the large full bottle for around $80 AUD.

It may be early days, but this fragrance is full-fledged love.

This scent is clean woody floral.It's peppery rose at the opening.
The pepper is minty clean and soft.Iris appears in scene a few moments after applying.
The heart stays floral and peppery.
The drying down is unique.Vetiver and patchouli are there driving the perfume into deep woods.
It's a perfect example of a feminine soft woody aroma.
Wearable everyday for all the year around .Staying power is very good.
