Perfume: Luxe Series – Champaca
House: Comme des Garcons
Perfumer: Nathalie Feisthauer
Source: Luckyscent
Size: 1 mL

Luckyscent Notes: White pepper, angelica, cardamom, champaca, bird pepper, tuberose, white musk, iris wood

Date: 12/5/07 Weather: 38 degrees and snowing

Comments: Very tropical, sweet, floral. Wear sparingly. Lasts about 4 hours. Goes a bit sour at the end. Much nicer than the Patchouli.

Date: 1/30/07 Weather: 45 degrees and windy

Comments: Starts with the same tropical, floral note. Very strong at the top. About 45 minutes in, goes through a brief 5 minute medicinal phase. At the end of 4 hours, still goes a bit sour. Reminds me of some of the osmanthus / tea-based scents I’ve tested. There’s a note in this scent and Osmanthus Interdite that seems to go wrong on me.

Date: 9/9/08 Weather: 75 degrees, rainy

Comments: Very pretty white floral note at the top. Stays that way for 3-4 hours – fairly strong sillage the first hour or so, but it weakens significantly. Fairly linear this time. At the 3 hour mark, it goes pukey and powdery. Thankfully, I don’t smell that part unless I sniff the wrist closely.
