Spicy Animals

Yes, the nose who painted “A Portrait of a Lady” for Frederic Malle is also the safari hunter who captured “Kenzo Jungle L’Elephant” and “Kenzo Junge L’Tigre”. Both perfumes are Dominique Ropion’s creations and you can tell he really likes ’em spices.

Both are discontinued perfumes, but L’Tigre is definitely a bigger challenge to find. L’Elephant is really a big spice bomb – liquorice, caraway seeds, cardamon, cloves, but yet it doesn’t smell like Indian food; instead it’s rather refreshing. One spray and you are wide awake. L’Tigre is a vegetarian animal who likes to eat oranges and chew cinnamon

sticks. A sweet and fragrant spicy perfume; I must say I like L’Tigre a bit more.
