Perfume Description

Annick Goutal Chine Imperiale Room Spray has long been discontinued - not sure why. But it works as a fragrance as well. You can find no information about it except March's review on Perfume Posse: 

"If Monsieur can be viewed as a more conventional riff on the love-or-hate-it Sables, then Chine Imperiale is Fier cross-pollinated with Diptyque Essence of John Galliano, then diluted by half and hooked up with something like Dior Eau Fraiche, maybe, or even Monsieur without the immortelle. I don´t know what the notes are, but Chine Imperiale is quite smoky at the top.  It´s not as intensely smoky as John Galliano or the recently offed Patricia de Nicolai home scent whose name escapes me but was very much wet-fireplace.  (Au Coin du Feu, and maybe you can still get it abroad?  People mention it, at any rate, but they were on clearance when I was in London, never a good sign.)  Anyhow, the smoky smell slowly fades but never goes away, and an oakmoss-heavy cologne scent emerges underneath. It´s the oddest combination, but it works.  I´d love to know if anyone thinks Chine Imperiale is still available.  Actually, I´d love to know in general what the distributors are thinking.  Sables, for instance, and Duel both have a habit of popping up unexpectedly on retail shelves locally, only to disappear again for awhile."

It is smoky and unexpected. Sure, you could use it as a room spray - works great for that. But why when it's a great fragrance?
