I will be trying out Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin today from a sample. Happy Sunday!!!!
As requested, a couple of hours later...what do I think?
This is a dark red rose. No cute pink or white rose here, and it's the rose scent of a fully opened, luscious and rich rose. That heaviness is lightened by raspberries (seriously!), and then by a sharp metallic edge. As those wear away, it becomes more spicy, and has what I think of as the Lutens signature (newbie, let's not forget that) becoming more evident. Rose and Lutens base are very nice together. Hmmm....La Fille de Berlin...strangely named. This is not a girl's scent, it is a woman's.
I like it. Oh, how could I forget to add a comment on the color? It is bright pink and very pretty. It should be wine colored, though. The bright pink is deceptive :)
