Sorry, y’all, it’s sick call today. Near the end of it, but I keep relapsing into a fever and just can’t string together enough energy to sniff long enough and gather my thoughts even semi intelligently.
Let’s speculate instead on the new Serge Lutens La Reglieuse instead. The only notes I’ve found are jasmine, incense, musk and civet. And ohheytherebadgirl, that calls to me. Jasmine, incense and civet are the three notes that I think belong in every fragrance, then you can throw other things in on top of that to make it more personal. No? Anyone smelled it yet? Of course it wasn’t on the shelves yet when I was in Paris, so I’ve had to get it through the mail. With any luck, by the end of the week.
The always helpful marketing notes mention it is a fight between good and evil, black and white. It appears to have some religious inferences, and if I love it as much as I loved the other somewhat religious’ish fragrance, de Profundis, then I will be more than satisfied. Anticipation is so much fun. What are you guys thinking about this one? And avoidavoidavoid the darn flu and colds and all that stuff, it is misery.
