Parfumerie Generale has launched a new collection of fragrances, Créations Privées or Private Collection. The five perfumes are:

Bois de Copaïba has notes of orange pulp, red ginger, amaretto, copahu balm, mahogany wood, myrrh and sandalwood.

Cèdre Sandaraque is a gourmand with "gilded cereals and amber praline". Notes include vetiver, African cedar, sandarac resin, cereals and pralined amber.

Corps et Ames celebrates the enigmatic perfume of immortelle flower and features Bourbon geranium, spices, everlasting flowers (immortelle), melati (jasmine) wood, leather and sandalwood.

Querelle pays homage to the oeuvre of Jean Genet, and has notes of citrus, Iranian black caraway, myrrh, cinnamon, Haitian vetiver, incense, oakmoss and ambergris.

Tubéreuse Couture includes kalamanzi oil, green jasmin shoots, ylang-ylang, sugar cane, Indian tuberose, Sumatra benzoin and papyrus.

The first four are available now at theperfumeshoppe in Canada or directly from parfumerie-generale in France; Tubéreuse Couture will launch shortly. (via Parfumerie Generale)

    These Perfumerie Generale note descriptions always sound so amazing, but unfortunately they just don't last on me at all. Most of the PG scents I've tried disappeared within an hour after application! So disappointing!

    I have seen similar complaints, so you're not alone! I don't find them to be much worse than say, L'Artisan — but many of them do need to be sprayed on liberally, and will agree that many of the EdPs wear like EdTs.

    I have returned from The Perfume Shoppe here in Vancouver and I have fallen completely and utterly in love with PG. This is a sensational line; my wrists are still wafting very potent sillage after hours on my skin, so if the rumours of these scents being fleeting are keeping anyone away from trying these gorgeous and highly original, highly evocative fumes, try for yourself and see.

    I think the earlier scents got more complaints than the later. The newer perfumes in the line seem heavier & sweeter to me.

    I have yet to really explore the line. Bois Blond is not sweet in the least, nor is the newest, Cadjmere. I would not call them heavy, either, but perhaps they are heavier compared to the earlier releases. Goody! More to explore for me. Thanks, R.
