Parfumerie Generale – L’eau de Circe

Perfume: L’eau de Circe
House: Parfumerie Generale
Source: Luckyscent
Size: 1mL

Luckyscent Notes: Absolute of Damask Rose, Jasmine, Osmanthus, Orchid, Ylang-ylang, white Peach leaves, Tangerine, Patchouli, Wood, Amber, Honey Balm

Date: 9/6/07 Weather: 78 degrees

Wearing: Greenish, anise, fennel topnote laced with slight vanilla. Becomes a little powdery and quite floral. Some peach (but not really peach). In 5 minutes, picks up some honey. Very linear.

Comments: Pleasant, light, summery scent. Not getting the fruit note picked up by other commenters. Pretty and romantic.

Date: 9/25/07 Weather: N/A

Comments: Like this even more – anise, vanilla, amber and flowers. Sweet but pleasantly so. After 1 hour – vanilla, anise, jasmine. Light and pretty. This lasts awhile. Does get slightly funky after 3 hours – not bad but not pleasant either.

Date: 1/11/08 Weather: 40 degrees and rainy

Comments: I still find this an absolutely gorgeous scent. Sweet, a hint of powder. Linear and beautifully blended. Hard to pick out a particular note in this blend. Also lasts awhile – 6 hours later plus 1 shower in between, I can still smell this. And it’s still gorgeous and girly.

Date: 1/31/08 Weather: 35 degrees, sunny

Comments: This time, more amber and flowers. Find that it faded this time after 5 hours. My nose is a bit stuffy today, so I’m probably not picking up the final notes of this scent.

Date: 7/5/08 Weather: 85 degrees, sunny

Comments: Vanilla, amber, powder, slight hint of anise. I wore this in comparison to Hypnotic Poison. Found the Hypnotic Poison slightly drier, less powdery, creamier. Can see the comparison with the slight hint of anise and significant lashings of vanilla in both. The Hypnotic Poison lasts longer and has more sillage.

Retired – finished sample.
