PRLog - June 19, 2012 - I have been collecting and reviewing perfumes for many years now. Many fragrances were left behind because I don't publish bad reviews in my blog. this year I started a new project that I call Random Perfume Picks. I will plunge into these boxes and take one fragrance at a time to review. Since I am not choosing. Bad reviews might come along.
L'HEURE DEFENDUE VII - CARTIER - LES HEURES DE PARFUM - LIMITED EDITION - 2011 - UNISEX
Official olfactive notes: patchouli, oriental notes, cocoa beans
Non official olfactive notes: iris, tonka, vanilla, brandy (?) or cherry, patchouli, cocoa.
I do love gourmand notes/fragrances, but this one smells like a black forest cake. Now, why the hell would you want to smell cake all over you? I don't really get this perfume.
Brazilians may also relate to the smell of the historical Kopenhagen cherry brandy-chocolate treat:
Tricky my friends, really tricky. I do love iris combined with chocolate gourmandises - you all know I am crazy about Guerlain's Iris Ganache, but this one here is simply unnecessary in the wardrobe...
