I really like Coromandel
- I've said it before but it smells to me like an apple tart tatin.
I went to the Chanel boutique today just to double check with them if they carry the perfume, and the associate kept telling me that yes they do, they're right here - she kept patting the tops of the EdTs while looking at me as if I were crazy. Anyhoo, I really want 31 Rue Cambon
in the perfume because I think it would be beautiful.
The Barneys really has one of the best-curated selection of perfumes I've been to, and that does NOT count anything in New York since I haven't visited anything there. I ended up getting a bottle of Geranium Pour Monsieur
because I was craving something "fresh" but didn't want citrus and certainly nothing aquatic. I was wavering on Odeur 71
but that's just too big a bottle of something that queer, even thought I think it's an amazing scent. So the mint/flower it is.
While there at Barneys, I tried on the new L'Artisan Seville a l'Aube
, which was interesting at first but then became just another orange blossom. It needs revisiting because I realize now, after being "meh" with the Geranium Pour Monsieur
and ending up liking and purchasing it, that my perception changes from experience to experience. Duh, right? Another recent example is the Hermes Vetiver Tonka
, which I've been applying more recently because I'm starting to like it - the dryness of the vetiver is well balanced by the sweetness of the confection-like tonka.Edited by HORNS - 9/26/12 at 10:01pm
