Honeyed patchouli and apple musk with a sliver of white fig.

Out of the 14 Lupercalia scents I've tried from this year's Lupercalia launch, La Tentation is my absolute favorite! I am shocked that there are no other reviews yet for this amazing scent!

The apple musk note is so beautiful. :wub3: Wonderful, juicy, realistic apple!

The honeyed patchouli compliments the apple perfectly. The fig rests in the background and gives the scent a sultry vibe.

In the bottle: It smells like a fresh Pink Lady apple!

On the skin, wet: Crisp pink apple and fig. It smells like perfectly ripe fruit in the prime of their season.

On the skin, dry: The honeyed patchouli emerges and deepens the scent. The note patchouli in this reminds me of a mix of Badgers (which also has honeyed patchouli vibe) and Silky Bat (which has a sweet, light patchouli). The patchouli note makes this apple scent so unique and gorgeous. The fresh pink apple note becomes a playful apple musk as it sits longer on the skin. The fig gives the scent a sexy edge and makes it irresistible to smell. It is very romantic and reminds me of warm Spring evenings. If I were to describe this scent as a color, it would be a vibrant pink sunset!

The throw is medium on the skin. I swear, the longer it sits on the skin the more it morphs into a more complex and luxurious apple scent. The honeyed patchouli and fig paired with apple musk is heaven in a bottle. I think La Tentation made it into my top all time favorite scents! :kissy:

This is a musky, earthy apple. The honey adds a depth and sweetness. I don't get obvious fig, but I'm guessing it adds to the patchouli's earthy sweetness.

 

This is very sexy in a wholesome, earth mother, hippie sort of way. Eve would smell like this.

This reminds me of Pure Applesauce, although it's a bit earthier, maybe because of the fig. The apple is the strongest note here, with the musk (a soft and airy one) in second place. I can't pick out patch or honey in particular, but there is a softly sweet earthiness in the background. The fig may be blending in there, too, because I can't detect it. This doesn't have a lot of throw.

Apple, fig, and a touch of patchouli. This is mainly a fruity apple and fig blend, with just enough musk and patchouli to make it sexy. Lovely. Good throw and wear length.

This is a I Too Beneath Your Moon flanker. The green apple-patch combo is so reminiscent of the Beneath your Moon, but there the patch has a caramelized quality and the vanilla cream makes it so gooood.

 

La Tentation is fruity fresh void of any sweetness or oriental vibe. Very easy breezy.
