SOTD: Parfumerie Generale Drama Nuui

OK, I'm confused.

Absolutely everyone smells jasmine in this. I smell a weird back-and-forth of something melony and aquatic and... civet? I'm theorizing a misidentified sample.

This doesn't match any of the reviews, so I'm just going to present the review roundup and wander around in confusion.

  1. I would love to know what you are writing about here. What, at least, is "SOTD"? (Sorry, but I don't have time to follow all the links.)

  2. Howdy! Welcome!

    It's Scent Of The Day. :) Being a perfume freak, I have a big, _big_ backlog of perfume samples to try. When I try one, or even if I wear one of the perfumes that I own a bottle of but I haven't posted about in a while, I post my impressions in an SOTD post.

    Parfumerie Generale is one of my very favorite perfume houses, but my sample of their Drama Nuui perfume has me stumped. I think I need to send off for another sample.

  3. I was confused, too! It smells to me like how you describe it, something melon-y and fruity. I only got slightly indolic jasmine at the very first whiff. And my sample was directly decanted from a tester bottle in a boutique, so......( ̄▽ ̄)”

  5. Ah, that's interesting, and reassuring (my nose isn't crazy!) that you get the same thing from it. I really need to sniff it again.
