Another quick sniff post
So quick sniffs, tests that I have done over the last week or so:
Serge Lutens Bois de Violette - love the deepness and how the violets pop in and out but fades quickly on me.
L'Artisan Patchouli Patch - adorable and slightly musty (which I like).
L'Artisan Fou d'Absinthe - this has been tested by me a number of time - I immediately like it - earthy, anisey (another scent I love), lovely...but why does it fade so quickly? It does come back but a bit, but then fades again. If this had longer staying power on me, it would be a must-have.
Serge Lutens Douce Amere - I think I have posted that I liked this one, in response to another blogger's post. But I'm not sure anymore. It's much too sweet/vanilla-y and that sweetness hangs on too much for me. Caramel candy?
L'Artisan Mure et Musc Extreme - now I understand 'indolic' (I think) - at a point this smells literally like butt. I need to try this one out again, and also need to test the regular version because other than the crap smell, it's has a lot of loveliness in it.
L'Artisan Timbuktu - Immediately made me smile! Happiness of flowers and spice and earthy-goodness.
Samples that recently arrived to my home include a bunch of Miller Harris, and ToykoMilk. Hope I get to some of them this weekend.
