    The I Loewe You sounds so completely undistinguished /generic/bland that it is hard to imagine someone taking the trouble to make it! However, it may be completely sublime. What do I, who've never smelled it, know? Those new men's fragrances, on the other nostril, sound very interesting.

    Oh my…Fruit de Bois…that name has MY name name written all over it in capital letters. And The Brun too. Just when you think your list of lemmings is complete something new is released. It is a torture. :-)

    I tried the Loewe in London a couple of weeks ago and wasn't much impressed – but then it's so hard to tell in perfume halls, with all those scents around you. The La Perla sounds interesting!

    L, I think the Loewe is geared to a pretty young audience (e.g., not us!).

    M, happily, each of them has a note that is a no-go for me!

    I'm sure that I smelt the The Brun back in August when I went to visit Roja Dove in London. I know that whatever it was, it had a really strong tea note to it.

    B, I have not seen these anywhere yet, but actually I rarely run across the JCB line. Will have to investigate online & see where these can be found in the US, although perhaps they aren't here yet.
