Parfum #3: Toujours Belle

When you’re feeling devilish enough to cause a little playful havoc...slather this incensual sweet and sexy blending of fig, black currant, cassis blossom and Indian black amber attar, swirled with luscious brown sugar, and become the essence of delicious mischief...

 

Ah, you may wonder...am I versed in le magique d’attraction? The true power of Woman to ensnare the affections of the one she desires. Certainement! To drive another to distraction with lust...oh, it is so much fun to be naughty, isn’t it ma cheres? There is nothing more sexy than you and your lover engaging in some l’espièglerie, and you with that smile which is so very wicked, non? I have a scent which guarantees le bon temps dans la chamber and you will remain always beautiful, always adored, always memorable.

 

Scent: Dark and incensey sweetened amber with figgy top. 
Mood: Impishly sexy in a bad girl way.

 

MAGICKAL MEANINGS OF INGREDIENTS:

FIG ~ Wisdom, fertility, love, luck, protection, aids restful sleep, divination. Feminine sexuality.
CURRANT ~ Aids success in love affairs, and a magical representation of blood.
SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches. Lust inducing, wishes granted.
AMBER ~ Fertility, creativity, love, luck, riches.

This one is really interesting to me, the contrast between the jamminess of the fig and the fruity brightness of the black currant.  It has an almost fizzy kind of quality.  I normally don't prefer the more ripe kind of fig but this one is really nice.  The darker notes of the brown sugar and the black amber sort of binds everything together but doesn't make it all too dark, just lends a bit of an exotic air, a nice density.  There's a sweetness but it balances really well with the more resin-y characteristic of the attar.  I can picture this one in a genie-style bottle!

Here is another one that I can't stop sniffing on my arm. I love fig. The thing is, this is in the women's section but on my skin, it has a slightly masculine characteristic & I think I would enjoy this on a man very much.

So this is the one I thought I would go nuts over.  I’m am an amber ho all the way.  Yet, this is way more incense smelling than a buttery amber.  I like the fig as it adds the sweetness needed and the cassis just peeks out.  It’s coming off as a fall scent so I am going to put it away and hope the incense backs down on me.  I loved the amber in Ann’s black amber, so I am not sure why this is so masculine and resiny on me.

It's a black amber attar, so it's got other things blended with it, that's where the incense impression comes from.

I adore the way everything blends together. It does feel a little weighty for summer, but I will wear it anyway. ;)

This is very sultry. I can get why its in the summer collection.  If only to add variety to all the lighter, fruity brighter summer notes.

Imaging this on my skin on a humid summer night :666: .

I get more "exotic" than incense. I kind of want to throw on a saree and let the warm sun heat up my tummy. A drop or two of cops would be very sweet in this.  

But, that long dry down is too much and by that I mean too good. Its pretty OMG. I put a swipe of this in the crook of my arm. So I huffed it all night and the long dry down is TDF. 

I kind of wonder, what if Mara had put a wet steamy note in here. Add steam & It will be a total summer SLF.

 

I can get the "fall spiced scent" off this. 

I am one of those "other people". The one who starts counting down to FALL right after July 4th. Labor Day? Please.. I am long past summer by then.  

 

This is also a total win for a wax melt.

This is sweet and juicy on me.  It isn't reading dark on my skin at all.  I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do, and am thinking that I may need to spring for a bottle. I agree with @StacyK that this would be fantastic with a few drops of cops.

Well I actually love this after wearing on my skin. I love fig in all forms and this is a super ripe juicy, jammy one. It’s a tad much while wet but it dries down beautifully. The combo of the current and fig goes through a prickly to my nose stage.  It’s not one or the other, but the combination of both together. Oh and the sugar! It’s the sugar combined with those two. Sugar does that to me pretty regularly. I believe that’s what Luna is calling fizzy. Luckily that doesn’t last too terribly long. I like it during initial stages okay but after long drydown of hour+, that’s when I begin to love it. The prickly part disappears, the fig smoothes out and becomes a little less HI, I’M FIG, ENTERTAIN ME. The amber really has a chance to shine as this rich, deep enough to ground but mid weight enough for Summer note. Really sensual. I’m so glad I tried this one. I’ll definitely use my sample.

OMGoodness.

I'm not getting fall or incense, I'm just getting sex. Hot summer night, too much of a good thing, dirty girl "couldn't help myself" unforgettable sex. Outdoor sex, by a river, not your nice soft blanket sex. This juicy fig is gonna leave you with twigs in your hair.

The long long drydown is soooo fucking nice. I reapply This all day when I wear it, so I can go through all the stages just to get to the end. A really fun and sexy as hell journey.
