a work of art, "classic" in the extreme

  • Summary: I agree with Miaw2's take on this one. I too find it very aldehydic and, like aoe, it also reminds me of withered flowers. There is something sharp and punishing here that sort of assaults my nasal membranes and makes me tense up. I do recognize, however, the artistry in 31 rue Cambon.

  • Summary: A dark lemon, leather, amber opening, (orris, pepper, bergamot, lemon) which is like the darker side of Chanel's own Cuir de Russie. Next a very light jasmine. Finally a warm powdery patchouli and vetiver. I don't find others detecting the strong leather presence that I do.

  • Summary: I'm a habitual fabric-sprayer when it comes to 'fumes; and it is not until a few hours after I sprayed this one on that I can really appreciate its depth. It is as complex and well-balanced as Mitsouko - I imagine this is "Mitsouko sans oakmoss, but more oriental and orris!

  • Summary: I want to BATHE in this scent. My only regret is that it's not longer lasting!! I love it so much, I've actually given serious consideration as to how to evaporate/concentrate the EDT to provide a longer lasting scent without disturbing the oils in the scent.

  • Summary: The opening almost makes me blush. Once the whiff of crotch calms down and the blend of the scent begins to unravel, my second thought is "the scent is wearing me", or "I've borrowed someone else's perfume". Someone who is in a tailored suit with a racy thong underneath.

  • Summary: Absolutely fantastic! This is the classic-classy floral chypre theme superbly revised with a tremendous modern twist. A sober masterpiece and possibly one of the best perfumes of all times.

  • Summary: Boozy is a good way to describe the fruits here, but they are round and smooth, not like a stale fruitcake, which some fruit laden scents turn on me. I should have known it would be love because this is full on chypre even tho it apparently lacks oakmoss.

  • Summary: A new style chypre? OK, so be it. There is no oakmoss to finish this fragrance off, but instead, you get a soft, iris, nutty, peppery scent for the first few hours. The final drydown is to die for. This is just beyond beautiful.

  • Summary: 31 Rue Cambon does actually conjure the shape of a chypre. I appreciate the way it redefines the olfactory geometry that makes a chypre so compelling and I love the way it smells.
