There are a couple of perfumes that you sniff, and KNOW most people are going to probably hate it, but you fall in love with it. I’ve been watching the Fragrantica reviews on Byredo Mumbai Noise fall from like 3.9 to 2.53. Hey!
Yeah, there is this crazy coffee/davana thing going on with some oud oozing in between your nose hairs, but I think this is just peculiarly and weirdly great. I’m still wondering what the roundtable was like when they gave it approval to go to market with it.
It is everything I wanted Serge Lutens Arabie to be. A little meaty and oily and smoky and squicky with a big fat steaming cup of coffee on top. Notes of davana, coffee, tonka, agarwood, labdanum and sandalwood. How could this ever go wrong? Well, sure, it’s not for everyone or maybe even most people, but it is all the chaos and noise and density that makes Mumbai and Delhi what they are. I could never live there, but I have loved to visit and want to go back one day.
I am defiantly over here loving Byredo Mumbai Noise, and I will stand alone against the whole world on this one.
Okay, this is a quick review today, I’ve gotten roped into captioning a concert at the new Seattle arena tonight. Foo Fighters and Death Cab for Cutie! I’m super stoked. I am not great at remembering who does what songs, but how did I forget that Foo Fighters does Times Like These?
I am a little divided
do I stay or run away
and leave it all behind?
it’s times like these you learn to live again
it’s times like these you give and give again
it’s times like these you learn to love again
it’s times like these time and time again
Yeah, we need more of that every day. I’ll be super sleepy in the morning, they like to give really long concerts. I’m wearing Byredo Mumbai Noise and will be dancing in my chair until the early morning hours. xoxo
What was your fave concert you ever went to? Any time in your life? Or top three, if you cant’ narrow it down! Mine are ZZ Top, Peter Frampton and Sarah McLaughlan. Oh, crap and Leonard Cohen, it was his last concert he gave, I think, in Las Vegas. I’ll talk out Peter to throw in Leonard. I’ll do a random draw for two winners of a Byredo Mumbai Noise sample.
