Additional notes include woods.
Les Sorbets de Luna (blue) ~ "Imagine the union of fresh fruits and a bouquet of slightly frozen flowers. That is Les Sorbets de Luna, a fragrance with an incredible charm in which bergamot and Nashi pear mingle with a floral trio (jasmine, magnolia and peony) as dew-beads. A delicious sensational elixir." Additional notes include cassis, rhubarb, cedar and musk.
Les Sorbets de Nina (pink) ~ "An essence successfully bringing together the sweetness of caramel notes with the spontaneity of an acidic harmony, in which the lemon, the clementine and the raspberry blend.

I understand that I am not the target audience for these things but they sound horrible and those bottles are making my eyes twitch: they’re in the wrong cups, that “bite” is just creepy, and the only one that doesn’t look as if it’s being attacked by an octopus is the blue one, which will clearly stab you in the hand if you’re not careful.
Maybe I’m just in a mood but holy cow do those ever seem wrong in every possible way.
