The Scoop
“Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me, aren't you?” should be the tagline of Charogne. And seduce us it does. The spicy aspect of ginger lilies is underscored here by zesty bergamot, fiery pink pepper, and sizzling incense. White flowers set ablaze is the image that comes to our minds as we inhale the luscious, piquant and heady perfume. The presence of ambrette, vanilla and buttery ylang ylang adds a delightful, subtly candied creaminess that balances the opulent aroma of lilies and the tang of spices. And as if the spicy florals and almost edible accord in the heart notes were not tempting enough, the base seals the deal with its sumptuous, sleekly animalic leather. Fatally attractive!

Umm... no. the perfume creator could have just shorten his explanation by stating that the idea behind this perfume is a public junk food restaurant bathroom. honestly i smell a toilet that has been washed several time a day with the same mob and an unnamed & un-flavored soap, so i can smell the rotten cotton mob and the dirty water in it, it's not my type no.

This is a gorgeous subtle and warming, almost clean skin like fragrance. The initial burst of amber gives way to sweet leather, lily and a touch of incense. Stunning!

I seem to have a thing for white flower-leather-skanky musk fragrances because I adore this, as I do Vierges (which is similarly composed). Ripe, fleshy and rather sexy, this heavy perfume is a nice surprise considering how the market nowadays favors light, floral modernist scents. Give it a chance - it's retro in the best sense of the word.

Very disturbing, nauseating, even anger-inducing. I have never wanted a scent off of me as I did this. Its not so much that it is a bad smell, per se, its that it is just wrong. Its like going somewhere you know you shouldn't and being very sorry for it. No other scent has ever put me in such a bad place.

Slightly spicy, decomposing flowers. Disturbing.

A really interesting scent, almost plastic-like going on, with flowers--especially white lily (hence the "charogne," I assume)--plus ginger & bergamot. On me it dries down to a little amber & lily. It gives me a scent-vision of women in scented hand cream and hairspray, close-packed in the seats of a funeral parlor.

I have a vision for this scent which is simultaneously absurd, perhaps, yet altogether pleasing: CHAROGNE smells the way hospital gift-shops used to smell in the 1960's. Period. The implications of this are, it may subliminally remind us Boomers----and altogether pleasingly--- of childhood memories of, say, having one's tonsils out, awakening dreamily from the ethers, eating all the ice cream one wants, and having the undivided attention of beloved family members and pretty nurses. So, to use a visual metaphor, we are in the curiously agreeable monde of British artist Damien Hirst, who, for awhile, explored the arrtistic beauty of multicolored pill capsules, medicinal syrups, medicine adverts. Yes, CHAROGNE is a Damien Hirst pop painting come to life olfactorily!

This is just horrible. It reminds me of the aroma of very old and stale cigarette smoke with a not too subtle infusion of eau de floral Lysol. I'm giving this rancid mess of a fragrance a "1 rating" only because there isn't a minus ten rating available. I haven't smelled anything this vile in a very long time.

When I first tried this, I didn't like it, as I was a bit baffled by the synthetic note I detected. But now I can't stop wearing it, and helplessly sniffing at my wrist. It is undeniably strange, but also incredibly sexy! It makes me feel super hot.

This is nothing like its name. It is a gorgeous deep perfume, with florals that don't hit you over the head; round, smooth vanilla and animalics in its base--more vanilla as the base goes on. It is gorgeous.

CHAROGNE is my favorite ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE scent, bar-none. Soon I'll be purchasing my second bottle... I'm thrilled LUCKYSCENT now carries it Stateside! "Nose" Shyamala Maisondieu has created a modern, sophisticated masterpiece. An irresistible blend of tangy fruit, wilting (yes! slightly funereal) lilies, ginger/pepper, a sensuous skin-musk, and a most curious (and altogether appealing) "plastic/leather" type note. The balance is wonderful: aldehydic where is should be, vanillic where it should be, just musky enough, and with a hint of inviting spices and moody florals. Brilliant. Instantly soared into my Top Ten personal faves of all time. For discerning noses. But then, all the ELd'O's are that way.
