Fragrance of the week (15) 2013 - Le Parfum Couture Denis Durand for M. Micallef

Picture: Marlene Dietrich as Lola Lola in Der Blaue Engel (1930)
directed by Josef von Sternberg: 
Thanks to a generous sample from Fragrantfanatic I now have, to say at least, a new lemming: Le Parfum Couture Denis Durand for M. Micallef. This frag is a incredible, dark, animalic, almost deep cosmetic smelling purple rose (even if the rose is subdued) topped by something similar to the note of bayleaves. Elegant, with some subtle dirtyness, a fragrance that perfectly would fit Marlene Dietrich portraying Lola Lola in Der Blaue Engel. To my nose Parfume Couture is like a mix of Andy Tauers Une Rose Chypré and Montale Aoud Ambre. So beware lovers of dark and dirty frags!

Rating: 5

Notes: Cinnamon, tangerine,rose, orange blossom, honey, sandalwood, patchouly, amber, white musk

  1. This is a great scent, I'm so happy that you like it :) And do you know what, I managed to win a sample set of all the Oriza L. Legrand fragrances. But I was 3 hours late claiming the prize, so I won't be getting it! This made me so upset I have to go buy those samples in order to ever get over this disappointment ;)

  2. Oh what a disaster, the Orizas are so good. The Parfume Couture is defenitly a "must have". And today I'm wearing another frag which I got from you, also in the must have category: Kerosene Unknown Pleasures, it's a true and yummy delight to wear.Thank you so very much for your terrific sample selection :-)
