Le Labo fan here. Just got Geranium 30. Like any other Le Labo perfumes that I have smelled, my initial reaction is almost always like this:

1) WTF. What is this!?
2) Calm down. This is expensive. They can’t possibly put out crap like this. I am so disappointed.
3) This is actually quite awesome. (If it is not awesome, go to step 1.)

Yes, I am like one of those people who own all Creed perfumes or Guerlain perfumes, except Le Labo is my thing.

I went to Fragrantica for a note breakdown cheat sheet and reviews, but the information was really lacking. I guess I am the only few who own this “only 100 bottles are made” limited edition perfume. (Really, I don’t believe you, Le Labo.) So, here’s my report of Geranium 30:

Like looking down from a helicopter over a stampede, I can see poor Mr. Geranium tripped and get stepped over by a marching band of lumberjacks carrying logs over their shoulders and waving hellos at me. As usual, I think Geranium 30 should be named something else, like Pine 30 or Beaten Up Flower 30. It’s unisex, quite fresh and sensual, not heavy, but I would not consider the opening “beautiful”, but puzzling and at the same time unique. As it quiets down, I am still not too sure what I am wearing, but overall I enjoy it.
