Weekend challenge – reviews in 1 sentence

I was too busy lately to write another review for you, I’m sorry. I didn’t want to keep you idle at the same time, so I came up with the idea of a weekend challenge. I might do more of those in the future (or not) and the rules are very simple. A challenge is a task to do and today I dare you to write a perfume review which will be just one sentence long. I will start!

By Kilian Imperial Tea smells like… a lovely green tea infusion with dried jasmine flowers, a very natural and realistic interpretation, but that’s just it – nothing more comes to my mind.

Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist smells like… an old and damp underground catacombs with the walls covered with green slime-y plants and with a lot of terrible, rotten carrots buried in the soil-floor.

If you feel like accepting my challenge, please submit your own ideas. Use a format: Perfume X smells like… and show your creativity. Give everyone a reason to laugh out loud. Until next week!

    Vintage Diorissimo smells like lily of the valley and jasmine petals crushed by fairies into an emerald green potion.

    Amouage Gold smells like Madame Rochas gave birth to an extravagant daughter who swirls around on a cloud of fizzing aldehydes, clutching expensive bouquets of white flowers to her bosom.

    Aromatics Elixir smells like the witch of the forest after she’s bathed in a deep, mossy pool and anointed herself with rose oil.

    Love this game!

    Faries one is nice 🙂

    Frederic Malle Carnal Flower smells like a fragrant blast from a florist shop refrigerator.

  4. hajusuuri says:

    Serge Lutens Chergui smells like bug spray when you apply a little bit, so go big and you’ll get honeyed tobacco and chocolate with chili pepper flakes.

  5. hajusuuri says:

    Tokyo Milk Dark Bittersweet smells like chocolate cake batter – yummm.

    Funny story, I met someone at Sniffapalooza and offered to gift her with some samples from my collection. When I listed the perfumes I have that were in the gourmand / amber family, I knew I had to list Bittersweet but instead of calling it Bittersweet, I accidentally named it Cake Batter on my list.

  6. Laurels says:

    Elie Saab edp smells terrific if you love orange blossoms and aldehydes, but I’m only 50%.

  7. Laurels says:

    Olympic Orchids California Chocolate smells like dark chocolate oranges, but better–amazing!

  8. rickyrebarco says:

    Joy by Jean Patou smells like a flower dropped in a barnyard with lots of cow manure lying around. 🙂

  9. rickyrebarco says:

    L’Heure Bleu is like the piper playing a lament on the beach at Normandy at the end of the day on June 6, 2014, the 70th anniversary of D-Day, meditative and mournful.

  10. rickyrebarco says:

    This is fun, Lucas. I may have some further “inspiration” later on.

  11. Jo Fairley says:

    Andy Tauer Le Maroc Pour Elle smells like a zigzagging walk through Marrakesh’s spice bazaar, emerging blinking into the sunlight to be greeted by a rose seller laden with swags of flowers, wearing a dazzling (and just slightly wonky) smile.

  12. Christos says:

    Guerlain Habit Rouge smells like a big family reunion sounds where you have to wait till the most obnoxious member of the family drops unconscious drunk till you can hear what everyone else is saying

  13. Christos says:

    Jean Couturier Corriandre smells like Tom Ford White Patchouli after graduating from a good manners finishing school

  14. Christos says:

    Lanvin Arpège smells like a well trained piano soloist performing warm up exercises, playing octaves from the highest pitched to the lowest bass

  15. Christos says:

    You probably understood I really love this game…

  16. Elia says:

    Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille smells like coconut sneaked up behind the vanilla with a hunting blade

  17. Parfumista says:

    CdG Zagorsk smells like a tiny little flower struggeling to survive just outside the doorway of a wooden, ortodox church, a windy, autumnday on the taiga.

  18. parfumista says:

    My husbands too, and Jaisalmer…I think Zagorsk is most feminine in the incenseline.

  19. Kerosene Whips and Roses smells like a rose scented bug spray I bought from a supermarket and, with one sniff, the cat next door was exhibiting the Flehmen response.

    I wanted to like this scent but, in the end, I couldn’t. 😦

  20. I think I once called the experience of Rubj (which I love and have a fb of btw) like eating a sloppy pile of Mexican or Indian food in a giant field of tuberose! Yum 🙂
