Absolument Absinthe - Le Parfum d'Interdits - Review

Immediately upon testing this one, there was a familiarity. And no, not a flashback from my days at Ohio University. In fact I don't smell any cannabis at all and neither did hubby upon the wrist under nose test or in the drydown. There is a slight cool greenness here that I attribute to the absinthe note, but I can't be sure. Aside from that, it's all CK One. Not to say that's a bad thing. I wore CK One for a few years, and still like it, although I don't currently own it. It's a cool, fresh, clean scent. Uplifting and happy.

For comparison I did a little research and found no less than FIVE matching notes shared between the two. I have included both sets of notes below. Now I have a lovely friend with a much different skin type than me and on her the cannabis flies in full glory. So as the LuckyScent copy reads it is a "chameleon-like scent and highly reactive to everyone's own unique body chemistry, we passed it around and were able to smell a gorgeous cornucopia of scents on different people."

CK One Notes:
Bergamot, Cardamom, Fresh Pineapple, Papaya, Jasmine, Violet, Rose, Nutmeg, Musk

Absolument Absinthe Notes:
Cannabis, black tea, bergamot, Iranian galbanum, lily of the valley, lotus flower, jasmine, ylang-ylang, nutmeg, Ceylon cardamom, sandalwood, musks

Yes, I sampled this one and CK One is a good comparison. I saw that comparison on LuckyScent in the review section.
