Wish it was called L'eau Freud, though. The ad slogan could be, "Smells like your mother."
Samsara today for a wet, hot day. I'll be wonderfully cloying all day to everyone within a half-mile radius.
L'Eau was a funny SL take on dryer sheets. Or Gendarme at about 2x the price. Still it had its fans, so L'Eau Froid (Cold Water) is getting a bit of press and has an interesting opening, (incense) but was remarkably fleeting on me. Now that I think of it, Boxueses was also rather sheer and transparent. I think SL is moving away from the spice-market aesthetic that spawned Arabie, Ambre Sultan, and Chergui.

I wanted to try the Sex Pistols scent a while back but never got around to it. Now that it's Malaise...no thanks.
Today, btw, wearing some old Brooks Brothers Sandalwood cologne. Rather pleasant.
