I'm pretty loyal to the small stable of scents that I wear. The only problem is, they're all light, white florals, so they don't necessarily carry over into the colder months. All the classic snuggly scents (the amber, musk and patchouli-based ones) just aren't my cup of tea. When I'm wrapped in cashmere and warming up by the fireplace, I want to smell more like, well, that fireplace. Anyone with me on this? Apparently, perfumer Serge Lutens
is. His newest scent, Fille en Aiguilles (loosely translated to "girl on needles") contains vetiver and pine needles (two of my favorite notes) in an intoxicating warm woody-smoky blend that's sexy but not at all in-your-face.
