"Cumin in a bottle"
For Mature Audiences
It's been called sex in a bottle. Animalic. Classic. Leather. Astoundingly real. Cumin done right. Balls in a bottle and my favorite, "Grace Kelly's handbag stuffed with Robert Mitchum's jockstrap." I think it smells like Monkey Bread. Naked Monkey Bread.
Created by Edmond Roudnitska in 1951, this is a unisex scent that has always appealed to me. While I love Caswell Massey Lime... it's a little like comparing junior high school necking in a church basement to a long weekend in the 16 Arrondissment with Charlotte Rampling clad only in a riding jacket.
I've had that bottle since 2002. I use it sparingly because it's expensive. And it lasts. My nephew is a scent hound. I once caught him opening my EdH and had to peel him off the ceiling when I said in my best Alec Baldwin bass, "Put. That. Bottle. Down." No 15 year old has the right to wear this. He's gonna have to do time in that church basement for a few more years.
