Perfume: Boudoir
House: Vivienne Westwood
Source: Beauty Encounter

Date: 3/16/08 Weather: 50 degrees, evening

Comments: Sprays on a pretty vanillic, lightly floral (iris?) leather scent. Reminds me a bit of labdanum. Just a hint of powder to round it out. Nothing that screams “powdery.” There is a tarragon note that weaves through this – at least the first hour. I didn’t stay awake long enough to see how this would evolve. First impression – I like this a lot. Definitely need to test this in the daytime to see how it evolves.

Date: 6/9/08 Weather: 93 degrees, humid, evening

Comments: Starts out with the lightly floral leather scent. More aldehydic this time. In the middle, get this weird “cunty” note. Sorry for the crude descriptor, but it’s the best way to describe the smell. Imagine a highly scented prostitute after performing services. After an hour – settles into a strong honey scent. It’s not a scrubber, but it’s not easy to wear either. Wouldn’t want to wear this out of the house. Very faint after 6 hours.

  1. LMAO. I now have a new perfume descriptive! I find femme has that for me as well and MDCI EnLevememnt Au Serail

  2. Yeah – it was pretty scary when I put it on and let it marinate for awhile. I don’t think it plays well in the heat. I’m going to try again in the winter.
