The Curated by Colette trio of fragrances that I mentioned briefly back in July goes on sale September 26 at Colette. Each fragrance is a limited edition run of 300 bottles only. Bois de Jasmin reviewed the As4 fragrance recently, and I can add little to Victoria's review except that I adore this fragrance: a cross between Yuzu Rouge and a gin & tonic in the top notes, and a lovely and long lasting woody iris dry down with vetiver and musk. I have not tried the other two fragrances, but please comment if you have! Update: see a review of Curated by Colette Three As4.
Also coming to Colette: a trio of lemon-based fragrances from Japanese designer Irié, each created for a different time of day: 09h25, 15h10 and 20h50. (via newsletter from Colette)
