    All I can picture is some perfumer somewhere screaming “PATCHOULI! We forgot to add patchouli!!!”

    • LaMaroc says:

      Or some kind of incense, at least, as a nod to all the cigarette smoke!

    • Aparatchick says:

      This is a modern fruitchouli; you know, the kind without patchouli.

    The next flanker will be called Parisan Hook Up- For women who wish their perfume to announce that they are looking for a “spontaneous adventure”; all a stranger(beautiful or otherwise) need do is lock eyes with you in that “stolen glance” while on a busy commercial thoroughfare. This will quickly lead to an on street necking in that “unforgettable kiss.” and then you and the stranger will proceed back to your hotel to blend musks.

    Since this is basically the same encounter (with different language) suggested by the Paris Amour copy, the Parisan Hook Up Flanker will have the same juice, but more straightforward packaging.

  3. Anne from Makeupwoot says:

    The color scheme on the packaging reminds me of all the different “Incanto” flavors.

  4. maggiecat says:

    Is it actually possible to cram this many notes into one perfume? And can one’s nose actually get indigestion? (watch me actually LIKE this when I sniff it. Just watch.)

    • Robin says:

      I like long lists of notes — most perfumes have more than this, they just don’t list them in the ad copy.

  5. RavynG says:

    it sounds like a sweet flowery fruit salad. I don’t really think of Paris like that.

  6. boysindresses says:

    hmmm, so this is what “feminine, romantic charm” in Paris smells like? :| the notes kind of sound like a hot mess. but at least the packaging matches the terrible, cheesy ad copy.

    i’m sure it will smell benign enough that if, say, a friend develops a liking for it, i won’t really mind… as long as the strawberry isn’t too recognisable? the whole thing sounds sticky-sweet and heady.

  7. poodle says:

    I’ll give it a sniff if I see it but it looks way too fruity for me.

  8. madamezombie says:

    Ok… Don’t knock me down for saying that I do occasionally enjoy the BBW fragrances that come out. I was heartbroken to learn that they were getting rid of P.S. I Love You because I really considered that to be such a pretty scent and far better than some of the collections they’ve released lately.

    But seeing this… I suddenly know why. I guess there is only room on the market for one truly romantic scent on the BBW shelves… I think they just rerelease the same scent but slightly tweaked so they can say “Yeah, we totally put effort into this.” Great marketing move…


  9. breathesgelatin says:

    The $1 previews are out. Not one of their better efforts. To me, it smells immensely like last year’s Secret Wonderland.

    A bit miffed at them right now for discontinuing Butterfly Flower (a perfectly passable green floral) and PS I Love You (which is seriously an outstanding perfume IMO). And for releasing perfume after perfume after perfume that smells of berries.

  10. Nicole says:

    Paris Amour just came to my local B&BW and I actually like this scent (can’t say the same with many of the recent releases). Nonoffensive, to my nose, with a nice creamy floral familiarity to it.
