Wow. Carnicure is one naughty little kitty. In case you’ve been looking for it, Carnicure is the sweet spot between the ferocious dirtiness of Serge Lutens Muscs Kublai Khan, the smutty florals of Kiehl’s, and the milky innocence of Helmut Lang EDP. In other words, this one is not only gorgeous, not only elegant, but above all exceedingly sexy.
A brief flash of flowers – orange blossom and violet ? set the mood for passion, and before we know it we’re lying on a massive bed piled high with animal pelts in front of an open fire in an ancient castle. The deep, civety funk of the fur mingles with the smells of desire- salt, sweat, skin, and human fur. But an echo of the sugared flower petals and milky sandalwood still glows through the haze of musk, gently suggestive of the comfort of a lovers’ bathing ritual. Innocence lost, and then regained ? over and over again. This right here is the smell of human intimacy.
Update: Carnicure is a new and improved version of the L’animal sauvage, slightly reworked to deliver a newly focused base that incorporates touches of vanilla, sandalwood, ambergris, and labdanum. It’s slightly less fruity than the original, but its deeply sensual spirit is unchanged.
