Guerlain will launch Carmen Le Bolshoï, the fourth (I think) in their series of limited edition Russia-exclusive fragrances honoring the Bolshoi ballet.
The notes include jasmine, cedarwood, citrus, red berries and musk.
Guerlain Carmen Le Bolshoï debuts in October, in 60 ml, 22000 rubles (about $340).

I’ll take a bottle , and a Russian male ballet dancer to wear it for .
There you go!
Is the Russian dancer a freebie with purchase, or must one pay extra?
You have to supply your own green card if you decide the dancer is a keeper!
The bottle is nice, but the notes leave something to be desired. I agree with 100mlEDP’s comment though about taking the Russian male ballet dancer with it.
It does not sound tempting, which is just as well. That might be my favorite bottle of the year.
Be careful what you wish for. Didn’t a male Boshoi dancer throw lye or acid at a rival?
Presumably Guerlain will not include any corrosives in this Boshoi series.
I don’t know, red berries are suspect.
But in all seriousness, yes, he paid someone to throw it at the director:
and other unintended associations!!!
Bulb atomizers annoy me. How often does anyone apply perfume with the bottle in a near perfecf horizontal and position that requires both hands? Ha, I nust answered my own question – owners of bottles with bulb atomizers! I suppose you can ask someone else to apply the perfume on you – perhaps the Russian dancer
Ignore the typos – my fingers are fatter than the iPhone keyboard keys!
I do not like bulb atomizers. I love my two Hiram Green fragrances but wish they were both in regular spray bottles. I also think that the fragrance does not hold up as well in a bulb atomizer bottle.
If I had 22,000 rubles to spare (and that is a lot of kopeks) I might consider it…
Russian men are too intense for my taste, I’m out, lol! I always have a special place in my heart for Carmen though, so if a bottle of this fell on my lap I wouldn’t turn it away.
