Oriental Spicy Fragrances

Keiko Mecheri Les Zazous Review

Keiko Mecheri Les Zazous_75ml_EdP

The moment I sampled Oliban from Keiko Mecheri I knew that, due to its appeal, I will need to return to this house for at least a couple of samplings. Since then, I managed to sniff one interesting scent from their recent collection called Bespoke (Cuir Fauve), but there was one pending, that got me […]

Arrived on the market in October 2012, Greene Street […]
