L’Insoumis by Fabrice Pellegrin for Lalique 2016 + GIVEAWAY

Hi there FUMIES,

Sweet Fern has given us some beautiful Lalique samples to give you. While TinaG was over the other day we decided to both wear this beauty and were totally surprised at how different it smelled on us. It was a really interesting experiment.

L’Insoumis by Lalique 2016

L’Insoumis by Fabrice Pellegrin

Fragrantica

Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Top: Basil, Bergamot, Rum
Heart: Clary sage, Lavender, Black pepper
Base: Patchouli, Haitian vetiver, Moss, Clearwood™

Citrus but burnt off really quickly, pine, lavender and a creamy patchouli giving the impression of orange blossom.

Historically hyper-masculine – a rich gym locker room. Can imagine 35+ men in suits on the train and in offices smelling like this – clean shaven, fresh cut, Armani suit. Not much different to the same style of masculine colognes of the 80’s. Its not breaking down any new barriers – a sensible, simple masculine fragrance fully wearable by both sexes. Perhaps a bit old school for a perfumista, but in the right environment a perfect fit.

On Tina, it is a lot sharper and more herbal, and on me it’s a lot sweeter and creamier and much more like a historic scent.  On both of us, it smells really good.

Sweet Fern has $175/100ml

    Would love to sample! I think I would wear it on the coldest day of winter when I really do not want to to outside to do anything… But I have to go. Lol I follow by email. Thanks for the chance!

  10. Lindaloo says:

    I think it would be quite fun to wear it to a meeting with a group of very conservative men in their 60s. Young enougn to remember this kind of scent and old enough to be confused by a woman wearing it.

    Sounds like a summer sweat frag for sure. I would wear it to the office. Sounds like it wouldn’t be too powerful.
