La Curie Larrea Reviews
Luca Turin: “Small Tucson perfumery La Curie has released a series of perfumes that are right up my street, full of smoky notes that were for so long absent from perfumery and have of late come to signify '“niche” by their very presence. Larrea, named after the creosote bush, is a big smoky musk, perhaps a bit rudimentary, but entirely pleasant.”
Fragrantica: "It's rare that a fragrance perfectly captures an ephemeral scent from nature, and Larrea succeeds in invoking the feel of charged summer air right before a heavy downpour. I feel like I'm repeating what other reviewers have said, but the perfume is THAT precise in its connotations. It's a pretty remarkable feat to so clearly capture an atmospheric scent so viscerally. I really don't have much to add - it's just impeccably executed. Believe the hype."
