Karine Chevallier: “Lime Absolue tells the story of the encounter between the insouciant, fresh Persian Lime and the woody, profound Vetiver. It’s the merging of sunlight on tree leaves and the wind rustling through the grass, a story that unfolds over time. Beginning with a passionate kiss, it slowly transforms, leaving a tender caress that lingers on the skin.” 01 06 Lime Absolue was launched in 2014.

    A strong furniture polish-type opening that’s gently industrial and unusually compelling. It’s like a musty lemon-y citrus with some wooden notes underneath. Then a milky, dry cedar that gives way to a prominent fig accord. It’s not a Philosykos-type green fig, but rather a dusty, lilac-colored fig with a cardamom type effect added. But given how hilariously close to Pledge this manages to smell, it’s surprisingly nice and quite addictive. With that said, I’m not sure how many people would be interested in wearing something like this. It’s fun, aerated, and compelling given what I assume to be severe budget restraints on production. The perfumer has done a nice job, but it’s perhaps a bit too avant-garde and ironic to be considered a practical perfume.

    I see that this brand follows a similar approach as the one Frederic Malle does,a kind of curation work of diverse perfumers. They act intermediating the final user and the perfumer, trying to make that ideas previously rejected or unpublish target who might be able to appreciate them. If i think it’s a good idea at the same time i’m kind of critic about it too – for some reason i question, why were those projects rejected? For being groundbreaking, avant-garde, or just for being unfinished or maybe they were missing something? I have the second impression wiht the first FR i test, the 6th one – Lime Absolue. Conceived by Karine Chevallier, it’s the encounter of lime and vetiver, but what else more? There is no much more left, and this disappoints me. It seems to me pretty but crude at the same time and with such a basic structure that it keeps me wondering where i have smell this before; The lime at the opening is great, refresing and a little bit sweet, the vetiver is that variety that smells woody and leathery or rubbery and there is a little bit of milky fig and milky sandalwood, and whole at the intermediate notes. The woody synth aura makes me see it perfect for Comme des Garcons, but it’s like one of their unfinished projects abandoned at the development. It’s quite good the way it’s, but it could have been much better.

    Very beautiful and unique creation- here, the perfumer has definitely constructed a whole which is greater than the sum of its parts! I would not have said “lime” at all until after I read the description and notes- then my response is: oh, yes- now I “see” it attached to the top of this dense structure; otherwise, it is so well-blended that picking out notes is difficult in this striking composition! Definitely FB-worthy.

    Karine Chevallier blend of my favorite notes is spellbinding.
    Love the use of Persian Lime. There’s a Persian Lime tree in my back yard (in Northern CA), this creation captures the scent of the limes with the scent of the flowers when they bloom. I scent I only get to experience seasonally.
    Now I don’t have to wait, only a spritz away I can enjoy anytime. Mix it with the fig, vetiver and sandalwood and it’s like I asked Karine to create a bespoke scent.
    Big bottle worthy.

    Lime absolue? Really? It’s a vetiver + sandalwood bomb after the immediate opening!! The lime IS really strong at first but it tones down a lot once the scent reaches the heart. I could of swore I smelled some leather in there in the beginning but I don’t smell it anymore. Maybe my nose deceives me? Love this fragrance!
