Is perfume world going bananas?

I had to put this title as it was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the name of the new L’Artisan Parfumeur release – Bana Banana.

That said, I would actually love to smell it! 😀 I somehow believe it might be the type of perfume that makes you smile and just lets you enjoy yourself without any fuss while wearing it.

The site only has the page in French so far and this is what the description says: Une Banane Ambrée, composition baroque, rare et généreuse : le mariage d’une guirlande de jasmin et d’un bouquet de bananes confite.



Basically it’s an amber banana composition (a combination of jasmine garland and banana jam). Might sound strange but I believe it will work.  I have trust in Céline Elena’s work.

Quick translation of the notes mentioned  would include: jasmine flower, violet leaves, nutmeg flower, iris, and tonka bean.

So, what do you think? Do you want to try it?

    I’m grateful for the name so I won’t accidently spray it in a store and be confronted with my most hated note.
    It’s dawning on me, Ines, that we may be Evil Scent Twins 🙂

    Yaaaay! I always wanted an evil scent twin but it never happened. 🙂 I think we will have to monitor this from now on to make sure we don’t try something we shouldn’t. 😉

    Strangely, I am much more curious and eager to try this perfume than I was about many L’Artisan’s recent launches (which I still haven’t tried). I won’t be buying a sample but I give it a go if I come across it. I also like the name: it makes me smile.

      Exactly! I don’t even remember the last few L’Artisans but this name will stick with me. 🙂
