I have been very curious about this one. What do you think?
I think it's kind of underrated. Many people kind of rejected it when it came out because it was "clean" -- and I guess it is. I am not overly familiar with perfumes that smell of clean laundry, so I can't really do any comparisons. Closest thing I can compare it to maybe is Eau de Gentiane Blanche. I prefer this to something like Mugler Cologne, which I really can't stand. You might find it kind of boring. I find the ironing board note kind of interesting. When it was first released, my comment was "my grandmother at the mangle", hence the title here. I don't find it very ozonic, which some reviews mention. I really don't get any melon... which would send me running. I also do not get floral. Or soapy. Am I making any sense here??? I guess an argument could be made that it's a Serge to wear in the summer... although there are already some things like Gris Clair... and Muscs Koublaï Khän which work perfectly well when it's hot.We shall see how often I wear it. I wore it to work today, and it's the first time I've worn it since I had a sample a couple of years ago. I think I need to wear it a few more times to give a coherent comment.
Now I'm even more curious since I share your dislike of melon and Mugler Cologne!Perhaps this is a via negativa perfume? ;-)
