Turkish delight and gourmand fragrance lovers take note, there is a new take on gourmand in the house, and its name is Paris L.A. This is perfumer Laurent Le Guernec at his best, his unique take on L.A. through Parisian eyes. His fascination with gourmands is fully realized here. It’s always exciting when a perfume makes such a clear statement that says I’m here and I’m playful, and I’m like nothing that has come before. Yes, this is a bright citrusy gourmand that is exhilarating and ignited by the whimsical idea of cola meets macaroon. The top note stings of pith and juicy lime and playfully leads to a gingery fizz. Sugar crystals fill the palette as it meets milky almond bliss that ultimately collides with ambery warmth. This rococo gourmand is so much more than the sum of its elements it is truly special and blissfully itself.
