As if Keiko Mecheri`s Loukhoum isn´t pink enough on it´s own, it also got two flankers. Namely Loukhoum Eau Poudree and Loukhoum Parfum du Soir.
Eau Poudree is supposed to be the powdery version and Parfum du Soir is of course for evening wear. Actually I think I am doing allright with only the original Loukhoum, the flankers must be for real hardcore-fans that want´s to smell Loukhoum all day, all year and all times possible. On the other hand it´s nice with flankers that really are similar to the original to more than just the name.
Eau Poudree is the careful in the company, jag don´t think of it as more powdery than Loukhoum. I don´t think of it as more anything, it´s rather less of everything. But I do recommend it to everyone that has tried Loukhoum and found it to sweet, but still likes it in a way, maybe Eau Podree is the one for you? Eau Poudree is cooler than Loukhoum, there is a hint of something cold and crispy in it, maybe menthol or eucalypthus, and it´s rather nice, but unfortunatly to weak to make any bigger impression. There is a vague similarity to another perfume as well, but I can´t figuring out wich one.
I had some expectations on Parfum du Soir, but it ends up being the least liked of the three. This one is rather a little to much of everything, to sweet, to rosy and instead of delicious turkish delight it end up smelling like sticky marcipan cake. About the oud-and patchoulinotes, they escape my nose totally. And it´s strenght and longvity is better than Loukhoum, so well, yes it tend to be a little to much, honestly.
If Loukhoum is the same colour as exclusive pink underwear, Eau Poudree is the same pink as on a cozy flannel pyjamas, and Parfum du Soir is the dark pink of a synthetic shirt from the 80'ies...
