Bibliophiles beware: this scent bears no relation to the Bret Easton Ellis novel of the same name. If you want to smell like an American liberal arts student in the 80s, this perfume is not for you. Should you prefer the scent of delightfully wicked and sophisticated sexual intrigue in an aristocratic world that no longer exists, try this one on for size.
Rules of Attraction by Sarah Baker is redolent of the hunting grounds of Dangerous Liaisons. Paying homage to a well-known perfume of the same name, nose Miguel Matos took animalic florals through forests, castle gardens, and leather-bound…books. This perfume knows that the past was anything but tame.
