Hide-and-Seek Incense

Casbah, my new blind-buy from the Robert Piguet line. It smells so different from the rest of the line-up. Funny thing is that all the current perfumes from Robert Piguet are created by Aurelien Guichard.

I originally expected a perfume similar to Serge Luten’s Arabie, a very spicy and rich perfume, but instead it’s a ghostly nutmeg incense. 5 sprays in the morning, an hour later I couldn’t smell it anymore. At lunchtime I took a short walk and suddenly the scents came out like a genie from a bottle.

I would not call this a lovely perfume (it has a lot of pepper in it, I usually don’t associate pepper to loveliness ), but if you think Amouage’s Memoir for Men is lovely, then this Casbah is quite lovely.
