Want!...But can't have...Juozas Statkevicius Eau de Parfum

This is not a new release, but I have only just heard about this seemingly amazing scent, Juozas Statkevicius Eau de Parfum by Juozas Statkevičius (Josef Statkus), a Lithuanian fashion designer. Just look at the bottle!

Just look at the ad! (With this kind of ad they could seel me anything, even Cool Water)


Just read the description! (Red Alert for all the lovers of incense! I repeat, Red Alert!) :


Incense is at the very heart of this composition. It embodies contrasts such as shadow and light, past and modernity, simplicity and complexity, power and softness. These paradoxes make it one of the most difficult elements to master in perfume creation, as the perfect harmony can only be reached with infinitely subtle balances.

By creating a precious case of white jasmine, patchouli, and coriander around the incense, Fabrice Pellegrin allowed it to reveal its true beauty, without appearing too dark, too dense or too austere. Vanilla, Benjoin, and Muscs also contribute, thanks to their lusciousness and modernity, to tame the incense and let it fully express its ambery and warm notes.

Cashmere wood and coriander bring a noble character and subtly enhance this indulgent and unique combination, for an intense, authentic and lasting impression. (From
Statkevicius.com)

Do you understand now why I am so desperate to try this?! Unfortunately, Juozas Statkevicius EDP is only apparently sold in Lithuania... Oh woe is me.

even if they don`t sell through internet, write to them and ask them to make an exception for you and tell them that you`ll write about it on your blog, and send them a link. they will send you a bottle for free.

I love that ad, too. Not sure about the incense, but I am still very much an incense beginner.

My Lithuanian DH and I are pissing ourselves as we speak...

Despite the inanity of the concept, the jus, and bottle look lovely, and that girly pic is just too much !

C'mon -- don't we know ANYONE in Lithuania?

Hey, Chaya -- can you get them to send us a bottle? Turn on your famous charm? Hmmmm?

Marina -- I'll split it with you!

Marina and lilyofbp -- I'll email Chaya.

You all are so crafty! Poor Chaya, leave her alone! :-)
I would definitely do what Benvenuta advised, but I'd feel beter if I could speak/write Lithuanian. ...Maybe Mr. Chaya could write a letter for me..NO, just joking! :-)

Oh, thank you so much, that is very kind!

Here is mine:

"Hello,
I was wondering if it is at all possible to obtain a sample of your fragrance, Juozas Statkevicius Eau de Parfum. I live in the US and just cannot find a way to try it here. I would love to review your scent on my site, Perfume-Smellin' Things. The description and the notes of Juozas Statkevicius Eau de Parfum sound amazing. As an incense lover, I am very intrigued.
Thank you very much in advance! "

Thank you! :-)

PS. I think I should add in the message that I will be happy to pay for the sample and the postage.

Chaya doesn't speak Lithuanian, bless her, though I swear I'd bet $20 she could get them to send it anyway...

TO ANONYMOUS -- I too have a fragrance blog. I too would love a sample for review and would be happy to pay for it. -- March at perfumeposse.com

I don't have a perfume blog but I want a sample as well along with promise that I will be able to get a full bottle should I fall in love with it. Please add me to the list!!!

I want my letter to say:

Help! I need a sample of Juozas Statkevicius Eau de Parfum. Is there anyone in the United States that carries your fragrance? What do I (and my many friends) need to do in order to try this? Thank you for your time.

To Colombina: just copy and paste :-). I hope, your PC supports Lithuanian. If not, you (propably) need to change your PC's language(s) settings (uh, i don't need to say this).

By the way, I'm your fan already for sooo long....

My best wishes and regards from Holland,

Iggy

Laba diena!

Mane domina, ar būtų įmanoma gauti Jūsų kvėpalų - Juozas Statkevičius Eau de Parfum - mėginėlį. Gyvenu JAV ir negaliu rasti būdo išbandyti juos čia. Su malonumu norėčiau aptarti Jūsų kvepalus mano Interneto svetainėje Perfume-Smellin'Things (http://perfumesmellinthings.blogspot.com). Juozas Statkevičius Eau de Parfum ir komponentų aprašymas skamba nuostabiai. Jaučiuosi net labai suintriguota, kadangi esu smilkalų mėgėja. Su džiaugsmu užmokėsiu už mėginėlį ir pašto išlaidas.

Iš anksto Jums labai dėkoju.

I was in a state of extreme despair and panic - wondering if I should contact a former Lithuanian professor I had and BEG him to pester relatives, friends or strangers in Lithuania for me. Of course, that was till I read Iggy's comments - what a TOTALLY wonderful person!!!!!! Standing ovation for Iggy here. :-)

*Joins L. in a round of applause for the wonderfully kind Iggy!*

I wrote to JS people yesterday, let's see if they respond and what's more important, if they send a sample :-) If not, we might have to beg and nag Lithuanian relatives, friends, strangers and former professors :-)

Juozas Statkevicius can be ordered in Berlin/Germany.
Phone numbers for Germany : 030/50363309
Mobile Phone: 0173/2416814

Of course, if you don't call from Germany you have to dial the number code for Germany and skip the 0 at the beginning.
It's a small hairdresser shop. Price is 80 € including shipping to German addresses. I don't know if they ship abroad, too, but it might be worth a try.

i bought my first bottle of this in vilnius in january of 2007. this stuff is a knock out and the only scent that i truly enjoy wearing. the price has gone up considerably but it's a brilliant piece of work worth every litas.
