It hit me this morning when applying Rousse.
It’s not only Fleurs d’Oranger you need to take care when you decide to apply, as Birgit explained the other day.
Many Serge Lutens perfumes are mischievous, not exactly beasts, but creatures they could be. Everything is working fine until one day you put the perfume on, and it smells off. I’m pretty sure this has happened to many of you but the only perfume house which perfumes do this to me is Serge Lutens.
I will have to employ some investigative methods to discover why exactly does that happen but I think I know.
I believe they know when you are applying them without being sure it’s the right perfume for that day as you’re thinking, today this might work.
That is what happened to me today.
And that has also happened with Fleurs d’Oranger, and Cedre, once with Serge Noire, Fille en Aiguilles and Boxeuses (I’m pretty sure it will happen with some others I decide to wear without being sure it’s their perfectly right time).
I tell you – they know your heart wasn’t in it when you sprayed it. And they take revenge.
