Caron – Poivre

Perfume: Poivre
House: Caron
Source: The Perfume Court
Size: 0.5 mL EdP

Perfume Court Notes: red pepper, black pepper, giroflore, carnation, ylang ylang, opoponax, sandalwood, vetiver, oakmoss

Date: 2/11/08 Weather: 20 degrees, windy

Comments: Clove. Laced with significant amounts of pepper. More carnations after 15 minutes. Begins to develop the ‘Caron Fog.” It then disappears (?????) after 90 minutes. Maybe a faint carnation scent lingers, but I’m not smelling anything.

Date: 3/7/08 Weather: 50 degrees, rainy

Comments: Clove laced with pepper and carnations. A bit “chemical” today – but I have a feeling its my nose acting up. Also a bit sour (not entirely certain why).

Date: 10/30/08 Weather: 45 degrees, sunny

Comments: An anesthetic clovy blast for the first 30 minutes. Start picking up a hint of rose, black pepper and cinnamon at minute 45 – but still very clove – dominant. After 4 hours – pick up a touch of vanilla with the cloves and other miscellaneous spices. It is very close-wearing at this point and I have to concentrate. As much as I want to like this, it doesn’t do much for me and doesn’t seem too different from Bellogia.
