Serge Lutens: Chypre Rouge

This is Chene candy-edition.

To enjoy:

1. You must like the smell of oak.
2. You must like the smell of the saturated, medicinal sweetness of gummy bears (it is REALISTIC).
If you haven't tried Chene, never mind, just try Chypre Rouge, and you'll get a rough picture. :)

Between them, I reach for Chypre Rouge more often... not surprising for a sweet tooth. On this note, I recommend that fans of CR, give Parfumerie Generale's Cuir Venenum a try, for a diabetic dose of fruit jam. The cuir remains elusive, if any present at all.
