    Wow not another flanker. Sounds perfectly boring!

    • Daisy says:

      Absolutely. makes me think I’ll revisit the vintage Chamade from yesterday. Much more interesting.

    • Robin says:

      Admittedly it does not sound exciting.

    • laken says:

      Its not a flanker, is it?

  2. Daisy says:

    So they grow a lot of pink grapefruit in the wilds of England, do they?
    Right next to the bergamot groves I suppose. Of course they could be referring to bergamot the herb which is bee balm (I think) and that’s related to mint both of which grow in brrrr-cold Michigan–so bergamot growing wild in England would have to be the herb….but still….Pink grapefruit? I can see it now: ” I say, Herbert, the hounds have run that wily fox into Squire Dunghill’s pink grapefruit grove. I daresay he’ll object to the horses tromping about in there so close to harvest….” (It’d be so difficult to be the gentry)

    • rlsk says:

      That’s pretty darn funny. I myself was wondering where they grow pink grapefruit over there.

    • Robin says:

      :-)

    • mals86 says:

      “Squire Dunghill”? love it.

      • Daisy says:

        ;-) well, he thinks he’s growing pink grapefruit in the wilds of England so I’m pretty sure he’s “full of it”

    • miss kitty v. says:

      That made me snort with laughter. Yes, the lovely grapefruit groves of England… Ha!

  3. Chanterais says:

    This is gently hilarious, isn’t it? I mean, if there’s a more resolutely urban person on this planet than Kate Moss, then I’m a badger.

    The only way a wild meadow fragrance that would be true to her persona is if Maisondieu put a nice Glastonbury mud accord in there, with a hint of wellington boot and just the slightest murmur of pot in the drydown. But good old Coty’s giving this sweet little floral thing the old college try.

    It’ll probably sell by the bucketload.

    • Robin says:

      It’s gently hilarious that she has a perfume line at all. I did hear the EdP version of the first one was pretty nice.

  4. monkeytoe says:

    I hazard that Ms. Moss couldn’t smell a rotting vole tucked in her shirt after all of the damage she has done her nasal passages.

    • Robin says:

      Ack.

    • Ari says:

      hahahahahaha it’s so true!

    • ggperfume says:

      Bingo!

    • Zootgator says:

      I was having the same nasal passages thought (while gigglesnorting at Daisy). Plus, I can confidently confirm that we do we not grow peaches or grapefruit (of any hue) in our wildflower meadows over here :-)

    • laken says:

      :-) :-)

  5. Bunny says:

    looks like a bottle of nail polish… it may smell like nail polish too…

    • Robin says:

      The cap shape is sort of nail polish, true.

  6. It’s ironic that a fragrance that’s supposed to smell like an English meadow has pretty much none of the notes that one should associate with such. Grapefruit & Magnolia? Really?

    • Robin says:

      Oh well. Doubt that will matter much to sales.

  7. lydiadrama says:

    I simply must add my meow: meow, meow, meow. Too irresistible. She has the gall to shill perfume while she tells people/reporters/groupies she is saving up for a private jet… forgive me for going waaaay off topic but she brings out the 10% Marxist/Leninist in me that is typically well-behaved until **-addled creatures like her pull one of these. Mitsouko, take me away!

    • Robin says:

      Saving up for a private jet? That’s funny.

  8. maggiecat says:

    I, too, wondered about the pink grapefruit – and the magnolia and honeysuckle – that apparently grow so well in an English meadow. There I go, expecting perfume ad copy to make sense again…

  9. Flora says:

    ROTFL – the only English sunrises Kate Moss has ever seen involve the aftermath of an all-nighter in sooty old London, I’ll wager.

    Does her name really sell perfume? Really?! Because there is no one I would want to smell like any less, except maybe Amy Winehouse.

    • Robin says:

      It must! This is her 4th or 5th or something.

    • miss kitty v. says:

      I would expect she smells like cigarettes and liquor. (And maybe there’s something wrong with me, but I think I’d prefer that to the faux-English garden scent.)

  10. laken says:

    Well, I would give this a try, If it gets here to New Zealand. I like the name “wild meadow”. It appeals to the hippie in me.

    • Robin says:

      I like the name too.

  11. sarah24 says:

    velvet hour is really nice!

    • Robin says:

      Thanks — did not try that one either!
