Cookie Cutter: Serge Lutens Jeux de Peau
I can be called a Serge Fanboy. He's thrown openings with everything from gasoline to cat pee (to some) at me, and I've grinned and said, "Merci Monsieur, puis-j'avoir une autre?"
Jeux de Peau is the first of his that for me is a genuine scrubber.
The immortelle, apricot and "bread note" conspire on my skin to smell like buttered popcorn. Actually, that's not quite true. It smells the way that Jelly Belly buttered popcorn jelly beans taste, which for me is not a good thing. After an hour or so, it becomes a very nice sandalwood along the lines of Santal Blanc. Since I already have a decent amount of both Santal Blanc and its earthier cousin Santal de Mysore I can pass on this one.
As always, your mileage may vary.
$120 for 50ML at the usual suspects. My sample was from ScentBar.
