Santal Majuscule (2)

You can read another interesting opinion about the new Lutens on Cafleurebon, which describes Santal Majuscule as "a perfectly balanced sandalwood perfume", not too sweet (as Santal Blanc) and not too dry (as Santal de Mysore).

Tom's review

This week Tom is in deep mourning. His post on Perfume-Smellin' Thinghs is an obituary for the (once) glorious Maison Caron. Tom is really sad because the "new" formulations of their great classics, like Farnesiana and Alpona, are a complete failure, while Tabac Blond is, simply, "Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor in a bottle".

Santal Majuscule

It seems that Santal Majuscule, the new perfume released by Uncle Serge, is quite good. Created, as usual, in collaboration with Christopher Sheldrake, the fragrance combines sandalwood, honey, rose petals and a little bit of cocoa. Santal Majuscule is now sold only at Serge Luten's boutique in Paris and at From September 1st 2012 it will be available worldwide. Intriguing reviews are on Bois de Jasmin and on Perfume Posse.

Back to Black

Today is the anniversary of Amy Winehouse's death. Olenska, on her blog Parfumieren, gives us more than a review of Back to Black, a perfume that was inspired to Kilian Hennessey by Amy's aponymous album. She tells us something about a sad period of her private life, writing a beautiful post and a perfect tribute to a great artist.

Tom's reviews

Tom is one of the most talented and brilliant contributor of Perfume Posse and Perfume-Smellin' Thinghs (the first perfume blogs that I discovered when my fragrance obsession started, five years ago...). He posted two interesting reviews (as usual) : one is of 7 Billion Hearts by Christopher Brosius, the other talks about the new version (parfum) of the glorious Eau Sauvage by Fran├žois Demachy for Dior.
