LadyVictoria Posted February 7, 2012 Share Posted February 7, 2012 Vieux Carré Shrove Tuesday – or Mardi Gras as it is known worldwide – has no greater observance of the raucous debauchery synonymous with the holy day than in New Orleans, a city which definitely knows how to party! In tribute to this vibrant and resilient community and their singular traditions of costumes, krewes, parades, balls, banquets and total joie de vive we bring you a scent which celebrates these elements in true carnivale style: tart pineapple and licorice get zesty with lemon and juniper then sweetened with white sugar all on a base of warm benzoin to make it perfumely perfect…where you at NOLA, because our party-in-a-bottle is ready to laissez les bon temps roulez! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This one on me starts off as a fun ripe pineapple then hits the licorice note and gets very soft and fuzzy. It reminds me of With Every Breath for some reason because it gives me a very soothing soft feel. It dries down powdery and soft kinda like With Every Breath, which is nice and unexpected.I thought I would be doing cartwheels and shaking my stuff down the aisles at work, but it's vert grounding and balancing. I feel safe and snuggly. Starts off like a pina colada though and ends with a nice blanket. It's perfect for Spring! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
