I hang around at Los Angeles' premier perfume shop Scent Bar so much that the owners decided to put me to work. "Smell some stuff!" they exclaimed, "Then tell some people!" Done and done.
What I'm smelling here is a line from Brussels called L'Antichambre. Scent Bar (and their online store, Lucky Scent) is the only joint outside of Belgium offering the brand. The perfumes are elegant and vivid, each with a distinct presence.
I go into detail on my especial favorites in the video, but here are my quickie notes on the ones that popped out for me from L'Antichambre:
Donna Karan Fuel for Men.
Comme des Garçons Odeur 71 and Satellite Padparadscha.
Aki by Tann-Rokka (a perfume I bought on two consecutive trips to London, and used both bottles to the last drop). Coup de Coeur is a Lucky Scent exclusive.
