Maison Francis Kurkdjian Pour Le Soir was a lovely revelation – warm, cuddly, easy to wear. So when MFK released Absolue Pour Le Soir, my first thought was – More yummy!!!!
Sweet Cuminy Moses! This is a sweaty body-fest that makes my eyes water. Notes of benzoin from Siam, cumin, ylang-ylang, Bulgarian and Iranian rose honey, incense absolute, Atlas cedarwood and sandalwood. In other words, cumin, cumin, cumin and more cumin, amped up by some incense to make sure you don’t miss the cumin.
All I can do is stare at my hand and wonder how in the world I could ever wear that out in public without people commenting on how nice it was for “that jezebel” to appear in public right after being freshly fu exercised.
To be fair, it does settle down a bit after the open, moving from a 18.7 on the Skank Projection Scale (out of a possible 15) to a 15.4.
You’ve been warned, and I’ll share!!!! Two lucky (?!) commenters will win a small sample of this, appropriately enclosed in a double baggie so your mailman or children won’t get hurt.
What’s the scariest skank you’ve ever whiffed? Love it, hate it? I remember smelling MKK for the first time and recoiling, but now I think of it as a wonderful, soft skin scent because that open is so brief, and the rest of it is so gorgeous.
