I was in the city today and stopped by to sniff stuff. I started chatting to a VERY sexy SA in Myer called Louis. Seriously DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! Anyway we chatted about what I should try, I was all blasé, tried everything you have and then he pointed out the L’Artisan prive range. I totally ignored them when they came out but he insisted so…
32 Venenum by L`Artisan Perfumer 2016
32 Venenum by Daphne Bugey
Parfumo gives these featured accords;
Bread, Milk, Chai tea, Ceylonese sandalwood, Rice
Yep, smells good.
Chai? Yes. Milk, Yes. Rice? Maybe? Sandalwood, oH YES!
Should have bought it on the spot. Will now have to go back. Hopefully Louis will be there so I can be the creepy old gay. He doesn’t look outraged though, just chuffed.
Three spritzes on my arm and the train ride home was blissful. I’m now at home and still loving its toasty goodness. YUM
Libertine says this: A new world is opened up. Would it be a forest of sandalwood where rice is steamed while drinking spicy chai or a wide golden field of grains? Venenum awakens memories and souvenirs of India without dwelling upon it. It oscillates between the scent of hot freshly made bread, milky clouds, spicy tea and smooth sandalwood. No matter where Daphné Bugey has decided to make us travel, the sensation is as gentle as it is enveloping. This venin is so flirtatious that it teases.
I do have to tell you though that it does remind me of something I can’t place. I think they’ve used an ingredient that’s also in Aether Methaldone and I am reading it loud and clear.
Did you try it yet?
