You Have to Experience This One!
This set taught me quite a bit. I learned that I like animalic scents in the background. They give cohesion, excitement, and power to the perfume, but as a predominant scent not for me. For Her (floral/patchouli), Salome (Indian incense/Scent of Samadhi), and Femme (floral/balsamic/musk) were beautiful, womanly, and very wearable. Bal de Versailles (cinnamon incense and warm spices) and L’Aire de Rien (powdery leather) smelled like great incense scents, but I wouldn’t choose them as perfume. Musc Kublai Khan crossed the line for me into hippie yoga class and sweaty horse. Courtesan was an indescribable kaleidoscope of notes that ended in a surprisingly pleasant dry down. More than just sexy, I feel like animalic notes take a perfume from girl to woman; at the right dose.
