This reminds me powerfully of 80s orientals; ambery plum, clove, soft powdery leather. It’s very lovely but at the same time feels a touch too old fashioned. Shares a lot of the jeweled fruit tones I love in the Serge Lutens ambers. Very rich and formal, not sweet. Classic heavy oriental. There are notes I’m loving but the overall mélange is a old fashioned mature oriental that I’m not into.)

I was fortunate enough to visit the Middle East once, and I got to actually go down a street where spices are sold in a bunch of hot little glassed-in shops in which curries are presented in great layered pyramids and sold by the artful slice, which is then tumbled in a melange into a baggie. Everyone there sprays their robes with rosewater; I brought some home just to be able to summon the …Read more

Memory of an unplanned encounter with someone wearing a leather jacket, and you are remembering it the next day with a bowl of coco pops on your lap.

Memoir goes straight to base notes on me. I don't get the chypre structure or tangerine in the top notes. It's leather for me with a bit of coco powder. This is a well-groomed, rounded leather hinting at a tannery but without …

Rather average smelling for the price. At first, the fruit blew me away. When that calmed down, I thought I smelled coffee, and it was very good. However, now it's onto the sweetness. Coffee with fruit syrup? Unless this really plays up the animalic notes in the drydown, this will stay a solid "3".

Sprayed both the Men and Women on a few hours before going to bed. Women to me is very syrupy boiled sweet (hard candy) like. There may be some leather in there - it's amongst its notes - but I can hardly smell it. The boiled sweet smells like things I'd eaten when I was little, maybe a combo of oranges and berries and some passion fruits? To me it reminds me of Cuir Venenum 03 by …Read more

My mua name was inspired by the 80s show Designing Women (Suzanne's nemesis was Helen Van Patterson Patton), and this fragrance reminds me of an episode where Suzanne talks to an au pair hired to accompany the women and their loves in order to help with the kids--and whose mere presence is disruptive to everyone. She's just too much, and Suzanne feels like she can have a heart to heart …Read more
