Un Air de Bretagne by L'Artisan Parfumeur
„fails to capture salt air”
As someone who grew up near the Atlantic but now lives far inland, I love the salt-and-sand genre of perfumes and have tried many of them. When done well, they are a vacation in a bottle. Sadly, few of them reach that level. Un Air de Bretagne unfortunately...

Himalayan Blue by Crabtree & Evelyn
„elegant black tea scent”
I don't know how I stumbled across this sadly discontinued beauty. I think of C&E as a company that generally produces solid, pleasant floral scents that appeal to mature women. This is more creative and artistic than I would expect from them, which may mean...
If I had to choose one perfume to wear, this might be it. Fresh, clean, but zingy --you can wear anywhere. Reasonably priced & pretty, too!+1
Name means "Pepper Fields," but there's no pepper note listed, and it sounds painfully sweet. Can anyone explain the name?+2
Cheap suntan lotion. White flowers and unnatural chemicals. Had to scrub. Doesn't fit with the earlier Leiber scents.+2
At first, oily stage makeup with a hint of rose. In a half-hour, it becomes such an indistinct synthetic mess that I scrubbed it.+1
Pleasant but generic evergreen scent. Seems like a mid-range room spray sold next to the Christmas decorations in home stores.+1
Weak vanilla that smells like BBW Warm Vanilla Sugar. Can't detect the other notes. Bottle is pretty and has a nice heft to it.+2
Crisp green men's scent made unisex for us women who also enjoy pine freshness. Why doesn't a perfume co buy this & add to a regular lineup?
Notes sound great, but this is a standard synthetic Aquatic
with Legrand's usual "old-fashioned" powder. Revolting.+3
Starts as lovely floral woody musk, but then the lily of the valley stomps all over it and declares itself THE WINNER. Ow, my head!+4
Sample smells like a Natural
Lauder Youth-Dew! (Which I love, but not in summer.) Will report back after trying it in cold weather!+1

Sorry I just discovered your answer under my review "The Empresses of Japan" I'm registered at the German Parfumo.de. That's why we did not get any message when somebody on the English Parfumo.net wrote an answer. But now this seems to work? Thanks for your answer. And I will notice the scent you mentioned. Greetings, Seerose

Since the rest of the Greek text reads "She's hiding her ears under her hood, for she doesn't want anyone to know that her parents were the first rebels. But deep inside she's proud of herself.", I guess that the part of the story we were never told was probably this one.

Tentations is actually more like eating a juicy pepper-sprinkled peach (enter eccentricity), as a snack accompanying a vodka-quaffing spree, in the middle of a garden laden with intoxicating carnation bushes. And speaking of kitsch, I think that its bottle is the exact opposite, since it would be the perfect movie prop container for holding a potion hanging from an oriental princess' belt.
