Peony & Blush Suede, which has just arrived in stores. Created by perfumer Christine Nagel, the cologne was promised to be "the essence of charm with peonies in voluptuous bloom, exquisitely fragile, and flirtatious with the juicy bite of red apple and the opulence of jasmine, rose, and gillyflower. The flowers will mingle with the sensuality of soft, blush suede for a luxurious and seductive dry-down." Unfortunately, it also has patchouli in it, and I can smell it. I was so looking forward to this new "Jo," but I suspect my sample is the last I'll have of it. I really don't like the acrid smell patchouli leaves on my skin. It smells like stale perfume to me.
Le Métier de Beauté fans will be pleased between September and the holidays because there are a lot of new products on the way. I am not at liberty to give you any details. In fact, I have very few to share. Just be prepared to buy.
I have so much more to tell you, but I must leave something for features this week. Tomorrow morning, I'll be featuring my two new Guerlain duos. I was able to get photos today.
