I wish a lot more houses would do this! I bet we’ve all had the experience of trying a scent that was almost but not quite perfect, and wishing we could boost one aspect or another.
I do think the bottles should be smaller, because you’re not going to use as much of the booster as you are of the scent proper. But it’s a great idea.
Agree, surprised we don’t see more sets like this.
I love this idea as well. And I love the bottles….very chic to me.
Agreed, it’s a good idea. I do think that unless you have a very good nose, these would probably all smell the same?
Really smart idea. Serge Lutens did something in 1992 with the for facets of Feminite du Bois. Bois de Violette, Bois et Fruits, Bois Oriental and Bois et Musc all share the central cedar note of FdB and overdoses four aspects of it.
I also remember that when Le Must de Cartier was launched the EdT was radically different from the sweet, oriental Parfum. The (quite dull) foral EdD was meant for daytime and you could mix it with the heavier parfum, meant for evening wear, or just wear it by itself.
Quite a lot of people bought the EdT by mistake thinking it was the same thing as the Parfum.
Cartier renamed the EdT, but I can’t remember what it’ called. The name is just as forgettable as the smell.
Dior & Carolina Herrerra have also done similar layering sets recently, although in both cases they are to be used with collections, not a single fragrance.
I miss the Woman No. 4 and Feeling Man from the early 90s. The brand has never been able to recapture that momentum it had back then when it was a Lancaster license.
I know this treat is a bit older but can anyone please help me out?
I’ve just bought these three fragrances on offer thinking they were individual perfumes but read on the package now what the actual deal is with them. It says it can be worn combined with the original scent. Which one is the original scent? After googling I found this talk and was hoping someone could help me out.
Thank you ?
Simply Jil Sander…
