Hey Posse. Strangers Parfumerie has pretty much passed me by. I think it’s snob value. Because they’re so basic on the presentation and are extremely well priced I thought they must be crap. Well, it’s not the first time I’ve been completely wrong. I only have experience of Lava Rose so I’m not talking for the whole line, but if Lava Rose is indicative then I think we might have a new contender. I bought my bottle in a discontinuation sale because guess what? This beauty is bloody DCd. Yep, I grabbed the last tester in Oz for a steal from one of our biggest importers; LKNU. So, while I wouldn’t normally bang on about impossibilities this time you all need to know. Scour the world, even for just a sample.
FIVE lucky commenters today will be picked to receive a small sample from me with P&H anywhere in the world. Just add PICK ME at the end of your comment.

How does Lava Rose smell? The opening is really broken leaf and twig with a whiff of pickled beetroot (YUM). That mineral note they are all talking about seems way too cool for lava but might be closer to those hexagonal steps of old lava that they have in the UK and Korea by the seaside. There is also a salty twang as we leave the opening. The heart is a rose garden. Dirt, humus, rose plants and even a winter leaf burn off in an old cement-brick incinerator. This is a childhood memory happily resurfaced in light of Lava Rose heart. Dry down gets woodsy and some incense smoke. Maybe right down the back I’m getting a warm burning that could be lava with a following wind and a tight squint, maybe it’s suggestion though.
Strangers Parfumerie is another grooving playground for experiment additional approaches with finest quality of raw materials. With reduced unnecessary expenses so customers can expected the exceptional creations at a reasonable price. Founded by Prin Lomros in 2017.
Strangers Parfumerie is a side brand with Prin and Prissana. Sadly the website has no information I could find on the founder, vision, or anything. It’s just a shopping place. Cinnamon was underwhelmed by their Comme Un Carrousel.
Totally unisex and happily weird. I reckon Lava Rose is wonderful. The journey was fantastic. It’s not a big projector and the longevity is average so you can be guerrilla weird, introverted weird.
Don’t forget, 5 lucky commenters who put PICK ME in their comments will get a sample. I’ll let you know who the winners are next week.
