The go-to scent for when I drink red wine in the dark while Sisters of Mercy plays in the background. Amazing. One lippie off because I can't get it from any domestic retailer, online or brick-and-mortar, and luckyscent's shipping fee is forty freaking dollars.

Classy as hell (the fragrance is classy, I'm not, I can swear all I want). Green and violet and kinda woody, less cloying than Balenciaga Paris. Moderate lasting power, moderate sillage. L'Essence will come across as masculine only if your idea of feminine is hot pink tutu and glitter eyeshadow -- this is the chic and subtle femininity of a gamine in pixie cut, Equipment shirt and …Read more

Shows up warm brownish rose on my lips, gives a polished yet natural look. A little tug remediable with a bit of lip balm, still way better than most matte lipsticks out there which often have the hardness of pastel sticks. Neither drying nor hydrating. Stays on for around 5 hours.

My first oud-based perfume, and I thoroughly love it. It's well gorgeous, and being an olfactorially-sheltered lil 'un, unlike anything I've tried before. Now I'm tempted to buy samples of different oud fragrances.

A nausea-inducing total scrubber to me, comparable to YSL Parisienne in its dreadfulness. Shame, because JHAG's other stuff (Citizen Queen and Midnight Oud in particular) are superb.

The lovely middle notes are worth the 15 minutes wait until the sinus-blowtorching Glade®-grade citrus blasts clear up, but I won't be repurchasing, not with that price tag. 3 and a half lippies, rounded down to 3 (why can't we have half-lippies?)
