Edit: tried this again after a long hiatus. I like the dry down, but getting there is a bit too arduous. Demoted a star. Edit: It's cold today and I put a tiny dab of Chergui on one wrist,...

This is the only fragrance that I was actually afraid to put on once I received the newly acquired bell jar from an E-Bayer. This is definitely NOT the behemoth that others say it is. I found it to...

When we were in Paris last year, I made my pilgrimage to Serge Lutens shop, and MKK was one of the fragrances I had really wanted to try, based on everything I had read. Unfortunately, it never...
