SOTD: Parfumerie Generale L'Eau Rare Matale

I didn't want to wear nothing at all, but Himself is not a big fan of perfume, so dousing myself with a cloud of some dense romantic floral in honor of Valentine's day seemed not quite right.

So just a little touch of tea. And a picture of a pretty tea house. That is all.

Review Roundup: Is here.

  1. Yes - I don't regularly wear perfume for the benefit of The CEO, but sometimes it pleases me to make an effort to please him with the scents he likes best, as a sort of treat. (He likes girly stuff, the floofier the better. Example? YSL Paris. 'Nuff said. Although he did really like Cuir de Lancome, which surprised me.)

  2. Himself, sadly, likes almost no perfumes, so the best I can do for him is wear nothing. :(

    I can sort of see the Cuir de Lancome thing - I finally got my bottle and I'm wearing it for the first time today, and my thought was that it's a _very_ feminine leather scent. I don't know what makes it feminine, exactly, but that's the vibe I get from it.

  3. I do get that Lady's Handbag vibe from CdL (the suede interior, the face powder), but it's very woody on me, and I think a guy could wear it, without it being terribly gender-bending.

  4. I'm trying to picture a guy wearing it, and while I don't think his friends would ask him in horror "What are you _wearing_?", the picture isn't forming for me. :) I'm not logical - there's nothing in the notes that would make it non-unisex - but the way it develops on me is definitely girly.
