L'Ombre Fauve (Parfumerie Générale)

This is a sleek little thing of patchouli-imbued suede, buttery-smooth and not very profound, tagged on to a feel-good plasticky amber which (as my pal Nan suggested) smells like the aura surrounding a small-town psychic fair. It does its job tolerably well, though it seems that a whole lot of it is required to git 'er done. I wouldn't say I'm bowled over, but neither am I frustrated or let down. I smell good right now. For that, I feel grateful. Later today, when the last drop of this sample is gone (I told you, you can't be miserly with this stuff) I will forget L'Ombre Fauve quickly and painlessly. It cannot catch me, because it's not in its lazy nature to try.

Scent Elements: Patchouli, amber, musk, woods, incense
