    Hmmm..sounds a bit bored. Nothing special about that. I could be more interesting, than the last one they did. But I like the bottle.

    • Robin says:

      I did not smell the first — I do wish one of the major department stores other than Saks would carry the full Lanvin line.

      • Noahk says:

        I just found it a bit to boring and all fruity floral. So does this one. I was so dissapointed of the first Jeanne. Just boring. Something we have smelled around a 100 times before.

        • Robin says:

          That’s about what I heard. Pretty bottle though! Or pretty ribbon, I guess — the bottle is kind of plain.

  2. Absolute Scentualist says:

    This reminds me of a Les Parfums de Rosine. I’d like to give it a go. I like a well done and interesting rose, and also don’t mind a good fruity rose if I can find one.

  3. Daisy says:

    hmmm we haven’t had a pink perfume in …..weeks?months? But it’s rose so that’s ok. Of course I love rose….but that dreaded raspberry is likely a deal breaker.

    • miss kitty v. says:

      Yeah, based on those notes I can smell it just from reading about it. And I’m not liking what I’m smelling. Oh, geez, I think that olfactory hallucination is going to follow me around all day. Quick, someone name something good to get this out of my head!!

        Amouage….close your eyes and say it with me “ahhhmooooahhhge”

        • Absolute Scentualist says:

          Lol Daisy. You’re steadily wearing down my resistance to trying Amouage…

          • Daisy says:

            ahh, my work here is done…..

        • miss kitty v. says:

          Epic is a nice replacement, thanks. :) (Mitsouko works, too.)

    There is rasbery & rose combination in a new rose- perfume by Andy Tauer I thought. I know that cause he made us do a lot of housework trying to win in his blog Xstmas action. It’s still going on so I encourage some of you to still give it a try! Anyhow I would be more excited to try that instead of the Lanvin one.

    • miss kitty v. says:

      Ooh ooh ooh! That distracted me! Thanks!

    • Robin says:

      Oh, that could be fun!

    • Daisy says:

      oooooo….I sort of forgot about Andy mixing up something new and wonderful in his secret perfume lab (I always imagine it a little bit like the Bat Cave) Very exciting! distracted me too!

  5. Dolly says:

    Ylak! Raspberry and rose? No thanks. This sounds like nothing more than yet another fruity floral.

    • Daisy says:

      raspberry is usually a deal-breaker for me but I certainly would want to see what AT does with it. He’s generally pretty amazing.

  6. Dolly says:

    Whatever happened to musk? Sigh.

  7. Dolly says:

    Is white musk a shoot-off of musk. I am confused .

    • Robin says:

      It’s a variety of synthetic musk.

  8. Dolly says:

    Sorry, got a cold.

  9. Lovetosmell says:

    I tried the first one and I found it to be very generic nothing special.It was not bad but it was nothing that made me feel I wanted it.This one sounds kind of boring too.I will try it when its available at my department store.But, I won’t go out of my way to buy a sample.

    • Robin says:

      It will probably only be at Saks here, so I’ll probably never try it at all.

  10. I wonder how it compares to Rumeur 2 Rose, the milk-laced citrus rose.

    What a shame Lanvin won’t do better. I love their shoes.

    • Robin says:

      I did not care for Rumeur, but that was the last Lanvin I managed to try.

  11. eminere says:

    Is fruity rose the new black? :p

  12. Lollipop says:

    Well. I tried this today, seduced by the rose and the pompoms which are very cute. I liked it in fact. Will get myself a sample next time I am in Sephora. The nice lady in the perfumerie gave me a sample of the orignial Jeanne Lanvin; looks like a bonbon. Will try it another day. So hot here today. Did anyone else give this one a try yet?
