I have been trying to find reviews online of the newest Carons in the rectangular bottles, apparently released in 2013. The newest reviews here are from 2014, but it's not clear that references to reformulated stock refer to these bottles, and I think they refer to the previous formula in the peppercorn style bottles. So I hope this helps others looking for new info.

I have a …

I like different types of scents, I often opt for a brand that cannot be found in the average department store (although occasionally there are gems to be found)

After testing a few samples, I don't think that I get on with Caron scents and this is no exception. Somehow Parfum Sacre manages to be simultaneously creamy and sharply cloying. I would love to know which note I dislike …

I read on the fragrance board where one of the regulars, cholepoodle, had smelled this and heard Angels Sing. I respect her input on the boards and I was so excited when I read this, I made a short trip to accommodate myself to be able to experience such joy. Alas, I was saddened because for me it was only heavy, cloying, and smelled very much like something you'd expect to smell on an old …Read more

I loved the top notes. But for the next six hours I smelled rose soap. Eau de Laundromat. I gave it a second try, hoping for a great dry down, but I couldn't ever get past the overwhelming soapiness of it. In Nicaragua, where I spend a couple weeks each year, everyone hand washes their clothes with a floral bar soap. This reminded me of that. Decent longevity, though, I must say. I smelled …Read more

This is for the Parfum Sacre oil. It seems like a love or hate thing, as with most Carons. I can't say I'm a big fan of this somber, serious classic perfume house. The opening notes of this perfume, to my nose, are NOT a winner. Wayyy too serious, 40s style. I hate lemon though, so that might be why. The mace as well, can't imagine that would smell good. It's all a big …Read more

I love this fragrance. On application, it's very sharp and spicy, almost masculine. Then it softens into something warm and seductive. Still spicy and deep with some sweetness and more floral notes. It's a very assertive fragrance, to me. I imagine a strong, confident woman in a jewel-toned cocktail dress. She's dancing alone on an open air dance floor under the stars as a …Read more

I actually had this on my wishlist, based purely on the all the glowing reviews on here! That is until today, when I received a sample of this and was sadly disappointed. The notes are vanilla, myrrh, civet, cedarwood, lemon, pepper, mace, cardamom, orange blossom, rose, jasmine, and rosewood. (according to TPC) I can pretty much smell all of these notes in varying amounts, but the opening is a …Read more

Very disappointing. This gets such high reviews I thought I could not go wrong. . . wrong! I didn't smell any rose in this. I love, love love rose in many forms, Montale Aoud Queen Roses, Montale Taif Rose, Chanel 19, Paloma Picasso, Knowing. . . but Parfum Sacre is "roseless" in my nostrils. I do get vanilla, cinnamon perhaps some middling quality sandalwood and then. . …Read more

it is a perfect amsterdam in october fragrance to me. just amsterdam in october, with no leaves on the trees, wet asfalt shimmering under the rain at night, canals, the sweet smell of the fallen leaves, the waves of warmth and sweet exciting aromas from …

Velvet flowers and honey musk. Smooth and sensuous like silk but still a lady. There seems to be a steady density to the way the fragrance lingers near you. Some scents that wear close seem to come and go as you move. But this is always quietly and firmly present. Love it.
