Cologne Pour Le Soir by Maison Francis Kurkdjian 2009

Hey there Posse! Tom has just called in sick so I’m here to fill for him. Lucky you caught me because I have just spritzed myself with Cologne Pour Le Soir and was about to go have a cuppa and grab my book to go lie in the winter sun in Sydney, Australia. Today is a beautiful day and Jin & I slept in late and then got up to watch the Rio Olympics. He’s gone back to bed because he starts a week of night shifts tonight and I’m slobbing around the house in track suit and t-shirt. Instead of describing Cologne Pour Le Soir’s golden, sunlit, naughty, sensual, raunchy, animalic flesh and smoke bombiness I thought it might be fun to do my impressions in pictures….

This review is GENIUS! Portia, thank you for making me smile with these evocative images. It's a great idea to use the photos to give your impression of a fragrance. Cologne pour le Soir is gorgeous in the heat, I can attest. It is not for the shy or non skank/cumin intolerant, but really lovely. I prefer the Colone to the Absolue. Enjoy your time off!! Hugs!

Simultaneously intrigued and a little scared by your image review.....although I have to say that, since becoming interested in perfumes, my nose has evolved to appreciate scents that most would find really unappealing. Armpit, incense, and a little bit of shaggy animal fur sounds pretty good to me.

I have the Mack Daddy size of this one and absolutley love it. I love the Absolue version better but the cologne is more wearable. The photos are perfect ?

That is too funny!! I'm fascinated by those outdoor urinals. Looks rather pleasant. The sacrilege of the order of your photos: ass over mass. Lol, I couldn't help myself. I love CSP but don't find it quite as naughty. The Absolue, on the other hand... Thanks for the giggles :-)

Holy cats and crackers! That pictorial made me blaaaart! out loud! omg. You never cease to amaze me - and you never cease to make me laugh! xoxoxoA

Perfect - never thought I'd want to sniff a body builder's armpit, but once again you've expanded my horizons. Thanks Portia!

Gwenyth August 12, 2016

Brilliant! I love the visual exploration. Sometimes I find it difficult to explain a scent and how I interpret what I am smelling. The pictorial journey helps to express the "feeling" one gets while wearing/smelling Cologne Pour Le Soir. Well done and thanks for the experience. :)

I love the pictorial review! Perfect.

HeidiC August 12, 2016

Ha! This was fantastic! I haven't smelled it, but I definitely feel like I have! It's an interesting idea -- to use one nonverbal sense (visuals) to describe another nonverbal sense (scent)! Definitely gets around the difficulty of trying to put it into words, not that you seem to have any trouble with that, though.

Oh, yum, Portia! That MFK is some seriously good juice! Too bad it's too hot here to wear it, but the first chilly night we get I'm reaching for this beauty. Thanks for a day brightener! Hope all goes well for Jin on late-night duty and that it's over soon. P.S. Hope Tom feels better soon!

Tatiana August 12, 2016

Love the pictorial review. I instantly got what this smells like. I think I have some MFK samples somewhere in my mess of a stash. Don't think I ever got around to sniffing any of them. Guess I should search for them in the morning.

That is a hilarious photo review, Portia- I hope you do more!
