SOTD: Serge Lutens Un Lys
The resulting cloud let me know that it's surviving just fine, and that you can't wear just a little of this perfume. That is, you can, but it won't act like just a little. Extremely light application accelerates the drydown, but once any of it's on, that's what you're wearing today. So I made the most of it and dabbed away.
I still love this stuff. I liked the accelerated drydown that results from minimal dabs - I enjoy the barely-grainy sweetness of the later phases more than the clear, high-pitched beginning. The olfactory texture, if I can call it that, reminds me of old-fashioned slightly grainy fudge, or penuche, though the scent itself has nothing to do with food. It's a very satisfying sensation.
