Today's Fragrance: Susanne Lang Cashmere and Pashmina ...
A minor complaint: Susanne, I know you're protecting your formulas, but could you please give us something more tangible notewise in your descriptions? I understand the romance of "As we journeyed by camel across the Jaisalmer desert, the sunset took forever to die in its furnace glow" but it doesn't help me anticipate, or understand, a fragrance.
One of my friends swears Cashmere is a mixture of Calvin Klein Obsession and Sheer Obsession, and gave me side-by-side vials to prove it. Darn close. Vanilla-y amber comfort scent. Pashmina? To me, like Cashmere, but spicier.
The art of these fragrances is their complicated uncomplication. Seeming simple, there is a subtlety to their textures. Yes, variants on the amber-vanilla-spices-woods genre, but I sense -- I haven't got the nose to qualitate it; others can -- there's more going on underneath.
Soft elegance. No one will dread you coming in the room with these on. Some will even look forward to it ... not the worst thing you could say about fragrance.
