A shadowy thing operating at the edges of perception, a mist of a perfume, lightly floral, gently cool and yet with an equally gentle earthy/woody aspect. Is this shape-shifter (about the only perceptible note is thyme in the mid-section but that soon vanishes) rain-like? Maybe the blurring of water on a windscreen, maybe a spring drizzle, followed by walking into a house in autumn, maybe I dont know. La Pluie is one of those perfumes that dont seem to be of much consequence, until the moment is right and suddenly it is just the thing to be reaching for. And if it isnt, then its just a somewhat watery, creamy-fluffy vague floral.
I don't get the connection to rain, as there's nothing cool or watery about this fragrance. Instead, it's warm and dry and powdery. The only form of water it might remind me of is steam - as in a steamy sauna. There's also a certain creaminess to it, and buried somewhere beneath the cream and powder a vegetal bite vaguely reminiscent of cucumber. Apart from that, I can't pick out a single note.
