One Sentence Perfume Review: Cuir Mauresque, Serge Lutens

Sweet, fanciful, endearingly musky--the scent of your childhood dream pony.

Notes per Bois de Jasmin: amber, myrrh, burnt styrax, incense, cinnamon, aloe wood, cedar, civet, nutmeg, clove, cumin, musk, mandarin peel, orange blossom

Cybis Studio porcelain figurine, "Satin." Read a profile of Boleslaw Cybis here.

(Yes, regular readers, Cuir Mauresque is making a repeat appearance, with a fresh pony--it's even better the second time around.)

An oriental pony to be sure!

In case you didn't know there is this page for all the notes on the Lutens (by a MUA member):
I believe it's where everyone gets their notes from ;-)

Thanks, E. I remember that site from my POL days, but I had forgotten all about it. It's bookmarked now.

Oh, wow, the pony thing all came back to me in a rush. You have to read Season of Ponies. It kept me in daydreams for a couple of years.

Wow, I checked it out, R--that sounds wonderful. How'd I miss that, pony-mad child that I was?
