I cannot remember the last time I disliked a fragrance so intensely. This smells like a diaper-clad baby toddled towards me, tripped and fell in a field of fresh horse manure, giggled, picked himself up and gave me a big hug.

I fell in love with MH L’air de rien this winter and I was dreading the coming spring, because L’air is a real fall/winter scent and I would really miss it. But that void has been filled with this gem. It is a fresh & powdery scent, initially strong and a bit masculine, but it dries down to a softer powdery version. Sillage is pretty strong in the beginning, but it wears off pretty quickly …Read more

At first smell I was a bit underwhelmed. But as it started developing on my skin I completely fell in love with this! It is warm, spicy, woody and sweet, without it ever becoming a run of the mill musk. Longevity is excellent, I can still smell it after several hours. Sillage is strong, you only need a little, this is really a perfume which someone only needs to smell when they are really close …Read more

Okay, this is a review years in the making.

I originally heard of this in relation to Jane Birkin, and was always intrigued by how she described this perfume - brother's hair, old books, all that. But circumstance has always prevented me from my buying it - it's expensive, and I've had other perfumes to have love affairs with.

The histrionic reviews also got …

Deep, powdery and smoky, so dry that it almost catches in my throat. I love both powder and incense in my fragrances, but this one just smells too dusty on me. I do get the references to old school fragrances like Shalimar, but whereas Shalimar is rich and rounded on me, this one is thin and scratchy.

It's a very interesting fragrance, and I can see it being a signature perfume on …

I'd rather say "maybe" on buy again than yes. This opens with a strong, elegant, and refreshing lemon/orange (I got more of lemon than orange). There's some green spine in it but I didn't thinik the green was in the least overpowering. I also enjoyed the aromatic quality of what was, on my skin, just a touch of neroli. The sillage is neat, it lasts for a long time …Read more

I was in a bit of a Miller Harris kick this past Fall as I found an online retailer selling their fragrances for around 30€. I bought Fleur Oriental blind because of the supposed similarities to Shalimar (I am not a fan of vanilla, but wanted something similar). There is a vague hint of Shalimar, but they aren't really close enough to be related...distant cousins, maybe. Anyhoo...Fleur …Read more

All in all, Cuir d'Oranger is the more sophisticated younger sister of English Leather: less soapy, less coumarin-y, and with more accent on the orange zest rather than its leaves. The orange in question is a sweet orange at its most waxy, oily, aldehydic self, paired with a super dry tobacco and woods base, and a subtle floral softness in the heart. The orange blossom is only a suggestion …Read more

I like this one a lot, it smells cozy and warm.
I'ts heavy on elemi and reisens and have a nice bonfire smell, I think i'ts more round and
feminin than the original La Fumee.

Yes, it does smell like Bal a Versailles Eau de Cologne...and my long association with BAV in all its concentrations must shape and mute my review of L'Air de Rien, which I find comforting, soft and sensuous. There is no barnyard, for me, but I did get vetiver during the first day I wore it and none since. ?? This is is reformulation of L'Air de Rien purchased in the last couple of …Read more
