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.

Rating: 8.5/10

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.

Crystal Wood
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.
