La Chasse Aux Papillons Extreme by L'Artisan Parfumeur
La Chasse Aux Papillons Extreme does nothing to sway that opinion. Yet another linear, floral dominant scent that does nothing to stir me up or inspire me in any way. This house has "pleasant" nailed down to an art form......but damn...can't we go beyond that? The only attempt at polarization so far has been Dzongkha ....and I found it a jumbled mess. At these prices, move me, anger me, hate me.......but please don't bore me.
Extreme in a nutshell is a toned down tuberose with assorted "blossom" thrown in the mix. Is it bad? No, it's an acceptable floral scent that's very timid and just lays on my skin smelling like....well....a toned down version of tuberose with blossom this or that added to it. I'm almost at the point where I will refrain from even sampling this house anymore. Nothing they create makes me take notice and if I want pleasant, I can always find designers at more economical prices to fill the void.
Excuse me now while I go take a nap......................
