Serge Lutens Rahat Loukoum EDP Perfume Review

Serge Lutens Rahat Loukoum

Turkish Delights have inspired more than a few perfumes. And why wouldn’t they? People seem to love Turkish Delights and their flavors are already rather “perfume-y”.

Serge Lutens Rahät Loukoum is a really sweet fragrance. It opens with a slightly waxy almond cherry. Rahat Loukoum stays in this Luden’s Wild Cherry Cough Drop meets almond scented candle territory much longer than I would want it too. Once that fades, I finally start to enjoy wearing it. Rahat Loukoum becomes this sweet, almost mushroom-y (white caps)… Continue reading | 4 Comments

4160 Tuesdays A Kiss by the Fireside EDP Perfume Review

4160 Tuesdays A Kiss by the Fireside

It’s “meaty”; it has density. When it warms up, it becomes this balsamic vanilla and amber with gooey, sap-like resins. There’s a mix of this sweet, syrupy… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Jolie Laide Jules et Jim EDP Natural Perfume Review

Jolie Laide Jules et Jim

Jolie Laide Jules et Jim is one of those perfumes that smells antique. It’s not that it smells like a vintage or “antique” perfume, it’s that it reminds me of antiques.

Jules et Jim is all about the oakmoss. And to me, this oakmoss gives it this dark, antique feel. It smells old which isn’t a jab. I’m not saying it smells “off” but I’m saying that it smells like antiques. Jules et Jim opens with dried lavender buds. There’s a balsamic quality to… Continue reading | 2 Comments
