Bat (2020) by Zoologist Perfumes

Smelling it on paper, I didn't love it but I understood what they were going for: a dank cave, dark soil, and dark, overripe fruit, especially banana. Does what it says on the label.

On my skin, unfortunately, it was a different story. I can only describe the opening as....slightly fecal? With...is that mint? How?

As it dried down though, it wasn't bad at all. Sweet woody notes. In short, it didn't play well with my skin chemistry, but it might with yours.

Carolina Herrera by Carolina Herrera

When I was a little girl, in the late 80s, I had this peach-colored Easter dress covered in little pink and purple flowers, complete with shoulder pads. Carolina Herrera is that dress: a big, peachy, 80s floral. Pretty, feminine, and loud.

Jungle L'Éléphant by Kenzo

I have a sample of Jungle L'Elephant and decided to dab a bit on my arm. I have now washed my arm four times with soap and water, the last time scrubbing with a baiden mitten. It's still there. I can still smell it wafting up at me, overripe fruit and cloves and cinnamon.

It's not an unpleasant scent. I think it might smell gorgeous on someone else. It's a bit too much for my own skin, but I can appreciate what Kenzo was trying to do with this one.
