Nice to see you going back to the ELdO's Cupcake. Haven't seen you wear Secretions in a long while.
Was at the swanky mall today and did some testing. While in Saks, I found that Chanel has a new Allure Sport Eau Extreme. I guess that's the equivalent of a parfum. I don't fucking know with these names any more. Sort of a regular Allure smell with a hint of sweetness. Not half bad. Then, tried the new Cartier Essence de Bois, which is a sort of woodsy play on Eau de Cartier, if I'm remembering that correctly. Again, not half bad.
Killian has 2 new scents out - the Asian Tales line, built around Chinese Calligraphy, a pure art combining simplicity and spirituality. (exact copy of what's on the tester pamphlet. Just wait, it gets better). Bamboo Harmony is the olfactive impression of a subtle sip of white tea taken in the heart of a bamboo....a moment of spirituality. (a bamboo what, exactly?). Water Calligraphy is an olfactive impression of an aquatic flower sitting next to a pond of water lillies....a moment of delicacy.
Bamboo Harmony doesn't actually smell half bad. Water Calligraphy is VERY feminine.
Saks also has a new exclusive from Annick Goutal called Nuit Etoilee. This smells like fucking Christmas to me. Either pine, or gingerbread, or some shit. Actually, it smells like shit to me, would be a better way of describing it.
Then, I hit the Niemans, and found that Prada had released its Infusion d'Iris in a Parfum. This was absolutely heavenly. A bit feminine for me but you guys who like that (Cupcake, Rach) should DEFINITELY try this out. I'm betting its going to be a real hit on here. Unfortunately, its an exclusive at Niemans for a little while.
