Le Coucher de la Mariee Hair Gloss

Recommended Posts

Believed to be the first pornographic film, Le Coucher de la Mariée was first screened in Paris in 1896. Billowing white clouds of sugared vanilla chypre.

 

Vanilla wood smoke!  A cloud indeed!

Vanilla. Smoke. Sex. This smells like an old time vintage racy lingerie blend. It's seductive without being tawdry, sexy without being vulgar. But yes, sexy vanilla.

The vanilla in this is SO GOOD.  This reminds me of a lace nightgown. While I get the smokiness impression at first, it quickly turns into a regular chypre underneath a huge vanilla veil.  Moss!!!!!! Hurray!!!!!  I think this could lean sexy or just beautiful without the sex connotations, depending on how you wore it, but if you love vanilla then just go buy it.  Just buy it.  

 

This reminds me a little bit of Lyonesse/Edith Cushing on a good day (her patchouli doesn't love me).  Edith Cushing and Fairytales and Lies smushed together.  A girl in a white dress in a gilded ballroom at the turn of the century.  I'm sincerely in love with this.

The vanilla is so billowy and gorgeous, reminds me a bit of the one in the recent Antique Lace. I don't get impressions of smoke but I do get a bit a freshness from moss, and I want to say I get a bit of soft sandalwood and ab bit of bergamont? There is certainly something deep and sophisticated beneath the vanilla, which is like PrinceofcatS said - a veil overtop it all. Had a good, but gentle throw on me all day.

Wow.

 

Sniffing the bottle, I worried that this would be too powdery.

 

Initial application in hair, it was high-pitched, but not loud-- like the whisper of vanilla pipe smoke left hanging in a room.  It warmed more with wear, becoming an almost vanilla musk wood scent. The vanilla smoke became a sort of skin musk reminder of borrowing someone's sweater on a cool night-- someone with delicious taste in scent.

It reminded me, in turns, of The Girl, then Brom Bones. I think it was because of the warm vanilla skin musk feeling Le Coucher took on after a couple of hours.

 

This scent lasted a full two days between washes, and smelled wonderful throughout.

 

For reference: two spritzes of gloss on damp, 30+" straight, fine hair, of which there is fair amount. Combed through, blow dried, then worn as usual (up, down, all around, in the sun and wind).
