I did NOT forget about you guys today. I need to come up with some more planning with everything I’ve got going on.
So new in this week that I’ve sniffed – Papillon Dryad and Areej Le Dore Oud Zen.
Papillon Dryad probably is not so much my thing. It is a beautiful green gorgeous thing. I’m not a green perfume kind of girl. Doesn’t matter, if you love green, the old Diors, etc., you absolutely have to get this. It is beautifully made and feels wild, like your forest came alive and is slowly eating your house when you turn your back. But every time you try to catch it, it looks calm and lovely and tranquil. Yeah, that kind of green. It’s a green that makes me wish I loved to wear this particular kind of perfume.
Areej Le Dore Oud Zen. I read one review that said this is not a dirty oud. Oh, pshaw. Okay, I may be a lightweight when it comes to oud, but I think it is the filthiest oud. Toe-curling dirty. I got a little on my nose when I leaned in too quick after I first sprayed it and then spent the day with a vague uneasiness about my level of skank I was putting off. Okay, probably not the filthiest thing I’ve ever smelled, but it’s up there in my fave top five along with Areej le Dore Siberian Musk.
So middle of summer, hot as heck, and I am covered in skanky oud and magical forests. It’s a good summer.
I’ll do a giveaway, two sets of a sample of each to a lucky commenter drawn at random. So of the two, which one are you most keen to smell? The skanky oud or the magical forest?
