    For a woman or man? The perfume house would hope both sexes would wear this. Pepper accords in the heat, really heat up, sending out a pure assault on the nose. Much like if you season with too much pepper and must sneeze. It doesn't leave you with a smile on your face. Why do perfumers think pepper is sexy? It really isn't. On top of all that critique, you have bergamot, sage and vetiver which really tips the scale on this perfume towards a spicy male animal. Not a bad thing if you are a man who wants a strong, spicy, conquering perfume.

    un de mes coups de coeur de l'année 2012. Une variation de la guerlinade made in Etat Libre d'Orange. Oriental poudré, légèrement fleuri en coeur, avec des petites inflexions animales en fond, une sorte de shalimar revisité mais doté d'une vraie personnalité. Un must have pour les adeptes d'orientaux sensuels et envoûtants.
