Hello Perfume Posse, Portia from Australian Perfume Junkies here and today we look at Serge Lutens newest select distribution baby La Fille de Berlin. I know, everyone else got there ahead of me but I just found a hefty decant in a bag that I was about throw away because I thought I had used all the decants and that it was empty. Ha Ha ha! It’s so fabulous I couldn’t resist writing about it.
La Fille de Berlin by Serge Lutens 2013
Fragrantica gives these featured accord in one line:
WHOOOSHHHH! The opening burst of fizzy, fruity roses is amazing, bubbling up my nose and tickling my brain. Aaaagh! Like a sweet, luscious, juicy framboise it is syrupy rich on my skin like a huge old amazing damask rose dipped in the most expensive full fruit jam. Other reviewers get a cooling into violet but on me we stay firmly in sweet, spicy rose territory and falls away to whisper quality at about the one hour mark on me.
It becomes a sweet, wet, peppery rose that has a very human musky base. I LOVE La Fille de Berlin and want to go back immediately and live the initial spritz again.
La Fille de Berlin stays at the soft level for hours, I get surprising little whiffs all evening and can still smell a very quiet sweetness next morning.
Did you all try it yet? Was it anything like I experienced? It seems to live differently on my skin than most reviewers, or maybe I am completely smell broken?
If you liked this you’ll LOVE Australian Perfume Junkies so trot over and say howdy.
