Loud and unique
I have to hand it to Cacharel, I think they create very distinctive and unique fragrances which somehow are never copied and never remind of something else, truly original. Like other fragrances by this house Loulou also manages to do the same, represent an era.
Loulou, a sniff and you are in the eighties, this is so obvious. It is a bomb made of spices, flowers, resins and yes the prominent but yet hidden insence, clearly I can't detect any note because the composition is so successful that it is just one smell- it is Loulou.
For a potent perfume like this it would be wiser to use just one spray, it won't make you or the ones around you sick and it does have a great sillage and longetivity overapplied it may not be pleasant. Also I would like to add that this is the type o scent which keeps you warm in winter, it really heatens the skin. Unique! Cacharel I love you!

Spicy and clean perfection
For years now I have been passing this fragrance by on the stores, I never had any curiosity to try it, though I really love Moschino as a house and I really respect them for their unpretentious, simple and quality creations. So come months earlier I suddenly got my hands in small of bottle of this classic 80's scent, and oh what a pleasant surprise!
I agree that this is spicy and soapy at the same time, a perfect combiination for cold winter days as the spiciness warms you up and the soapiness gives a clean feeling. You can immediately feel this comes from the glorious 80's, it has a loudness, it has a character. I cant feel the floral notes but i believe they are there to subdue the strong spices. I enjoy so much wearing it, probably my most wearable for the last months..
I think I will always have a bottle of it in my collection.

winnie the pooh in the woods
Estee Lauder is a house I don't seem to get along with well, well at least this was the case until Sensuous..
Sensuous is definitely a warm cozy perfume, this two words describe it briefly very correctly. There is a lovely sweetness from the honey, yet it is not at all sickening or nauseating, i think the florals and mostly the woods really soothe it a lot.
The biggest secret in this composition should sandalwood, which I personally enjoy very much, it gives the scennt a different dimension, it makes it more woodier than sweet. Actually I think if you love Samsara, there are big chances you will enjoy this pretty fragrance as well..
I, particularly reach for it whenever it is freezing cold outside and I need something cozy, it is always my first choice, and I enjoy it very much whenever I wear it..
I would also want to add that this one, the original one is the best version of the whole sensuous line, i really didnt care for the patchouli loaded noir..

Hot summer nights..
Now this is a perfume one of a kind!

I usually read that this is a winter day fragrance but for me this is the perfect scent for a sensual summer night in a holiday or beach..The whole composition is so playful, it is like a summer garden near a beach in a bottle. There is the coconut, a dark coconut, a little oily, just like there is a little leftover from your suntan lotion.. Then there are the white flowers blooms, my beloved tuberose with its creaminess, the neroli with its freshness, the gardenia with its exquisit beauty and oh well the juicy cherry from the summer cocktails :). This mix blends and works just perfect.. It becomes one with the skin, so that you think you have always smelled this divine.. and it lasts for hours..
And also here is a tip : You know how cigarette smell runis some scents? Well I started using this one when I was a smoker and the smoke made it even better somehow..
Great job!

Summer Fruits
I always want to have a bottle of BBW in my collection. Their perfumes are so easy to wear and usually they are the ones I reach for after a shower.
Tropical Passionfruit is what I posses currently.
Even though we are in the middle of winter I find Tropical Passionfruit pleasantly wearable, it actually smells like exotic scented shampoos. Though I acknowledge and enjoy its clean and freshness, the fruiy tanginess puts me off a bit. This should be a dreamy scent for teenage girls in summer or any fruity floral/sweet scent lovers.. for me, I think I should stick with citruses. Other than that, I am not letting go off my bottle yet..
