Hey Hey Perfume Junkies,
The idea is that anything worthy of comment, either good or bad, that’s passed under my nose through the week will get a short write up. Up till now I have kept APJ positive comments only, those days are gone. If I think something is terrible, shamefully lazy, greedy or stupid and you should know about it, it will be said. Not everything works for everyone and it would be pretty boring if it did >>> YMMV. I’d love it if you all agree, respectfully disagree, have any thought-out opinion and want to share, do so in the comments below. The point is starting a conversation.
Anything that I’m not keeping becomes a super simple GIVEAWAY. All comments are entered. Next week I’ll tell you who random.org picked. If the winner doesn’t eMail me during the week it will JACKPOT to next weeks winner who will get both.
Last Weeks Winner: There were no New Sniffs last week. Soz.
eMail me at (portia underscore turbo at yahoo dot com dot au) with your address please
New Sniffs: 11.10.2018
Cuir Cannage by DIOR
Annoying story. We are in Paris earlier this year, at DIOR. We find out Cuir Cannage has been DCd. I think there’s already a bottle of it sitting at home. Don’t buy. THERE ISN’T! GRRRRR. So, I bought a big decant from Surrender To Chance.
It’s bloody gorgeous. Sweet leather, fresh shoes, new messenger bag, soft and supple and utterly gorgeous. Shit, missed out. The base smells like leather and warmed amber.
Hypær by Aether Parfums
Basically a single note, Cashmeran, with a few bells and whistles in the form of Tripal, Kephalis, Ambrettolide & Musk T®. Banana smoothie and oiliness to open that segues into a woodsy, chemical weirdness. Slightly toxic but riveting. I can’t stop smelling it and get these odd, funky gusts of it through the day. This is probably not for the newbies.
Le Cri de la Lumière by Parfum d’Empire
The notes are so simple: Ambrette, Rose, Iris. Everyone is talking about how Marc-Antoine Corticchiato has created a fragrance that feels like light. The ambrette to open has something else attached that I can’t name. It’s sweet like a citrus but doesn’t feel so obvious. The iris that follows is clear and clean yet has an interesting humus warmth. The rose is light tea rose. They all show themselves and then resolve into a scent that is all and none of them. I wouldn’t say it smells like light but it does small like a beautiful morning.
Have you tried any of these? How did they work for you?
