Poison was a femme fatale.
Poison Girl is a toxic nymphet who uses her vanilla pod as a gun and spits her tonka beans in your face. Ouch!
When Ford's Italian Cypress meets juicy blackcurrants somewhere in the Orient.
Beyond black? I don't know.
But beyond good, that's for sure.
Males who want to smell like that are likely in need of psychoanalytic therapy.
My puny lavender
My well hidden jasmine
My synthetic vanillin
My nauseating ethyl maltol
My parody of luxury
In two words... Mon Guerlain.
Karagueuzoglou, Flipo and Ropion need to pay their bills too.
This may explain why such great perfumers have created such a vile thing.
Mrs Delacourte does "L'Heure Bleue", but worse.
My question: what's the point?
My advice: move on and get the real thing!
Beyond usual codes?
It's that same fruity-floral mess you've already smelled tons of times, in the ugliest bottle of Kenzo's history.
No surprises here.
As its name implies, this fragrance is just
Brutally, Awfully, Desperately
Olivier Polge made a powdery version of "Brut".
Why the hell should I pay €320 for this, when Brut can be found for < €15?
Starts with a feral bite, ends with a powdery kiss.
That is, spicy lavender morphs into gentle iris.
I just wish the journey lasted longer.

Glad you enjoyed my Douce Amére review, especially so since you are from France. Must say I miss your country and having bread and local wines in the villages.

Thank you for your beautiful haiku, I think I'll keep it as a memo in my notebook, I thought it could be understood as Parfumo being the big umbrella? :)

Good evening Opomone. I was glad to find your comment on my wall, thanks. Yes, I love fragrances since were I was a teenager, I used to guess which scent people were wearing. Now I like collecting them, I have more than 100 in my closet, and usually 10 to 15 of them for my daily mood. Have fun! Gianluca

We absolutely share the very same criteria about perfume reviews (or reviews in general). For a moment I thought that you've never stuck your nose in Samsara's elegant neck, since she's nowhere to be found in your collections, but then I saw her in your "tested" section. I just wish she was one of the old and mighty clear glass dames. Perpetual thanks...
