As I’m wrapping up my summer boredom with perfume, I’m walking that little line between needing to still wear lighter summer perfumes and pulling out what I think of as my “serious” perfumes, which makes me think about th upcoming fall/winter season, which is traditionally the time when all the new releases come out that I think of as the heavy hitters.
Serge Noire completely worked for me, and I find myself wearing it regularly, but I’ve heard a lot of grousing about the heavy cumin in it.
I liked Feerie a lot, will love it more at a lower price point. I think Cartier Roadster kills. Creed Love in Black shocked me with how much I liked it.
Those are my favorites so far of the early entrees.
But what new release am I most looking forward to? Serge Lutens El Attarine and the new Frederic Malle Dans Tes Bras sounds interesting. Those are the biiiiiiig new releases that everyone wants to smell. All three of the new Bodice-Ripping Guerlains I definitely want to smell – I’m just overlooking the trope that came with their release. The new Amouages, Lyric for men and women, sound interesting, and I’m more interested in them because they did a lot that was right with the Jubilation releases, while keeping the men’s and women’s versions completely unique.
If you have to rank the top Five fall releases that you’re most anxious to smell – before you read any reviews – what would they be?
BTW, speaking of new releases, Andy was kind enough to send out extra samples of his new Vetiver perfume, so I’ll have a drawing from comments to this post and give away those samples.
