My mad search for the perfect incense perfume has taken an ugly turn.
For a week, after multiple testings, I thought Annick Goutal's Encens Flamboyant might be my new holy grail. After all, I had an OMG moment the first time I put it on my skin.
I pay attention to those.
To confirm my choice, and fall even more deeply in love, I read every blog review I can find.
Then, like one cocktail too many, I go to Makeup Alley.
I try hard to put this out of my mind because it's killing my OMG buzz.
But that's kind of like, 'Whatever You Do, Don't Think About Elephants.'
So tonight, in a final attempt to prove the reviewer is misguided (i.e. fucking wrong), I march into the kitchen, reach under the sink, pick up the green container and smell the Comet, because I'm certain it's not even close...to...dammit.
Encens Flamboyant smells like Comet Cleanser.
