Maybe this is the most amusing new release in 2010. I love les Carottes is part of the HonorĂ© des PrĂ©s â€śNew York Collectionâ€ś by Olivia Giacobetti and smells like a delicious carrot puree â€“ no joke â€“ well seasoned with a fresh and healthy touch.
The scent starts with a note of fresh squeezed carrot juice, turns into spicy carrot puree and finally ends with an earthy, slightly powdery vanilla carrot base. I mean it is very interesting and beyond doubt a challenge to make a perfume based on carrots. Olivia Giacobetti cooked, froze and cooked again carrots from organic farmers from Harlem to experience all facets of this vegetable. Usually I adore her perfumes but with all respect to her work I am sorry, I do not love I love les Carottes.
One hour after putting it on the scent disappeared almost completely, like all the other scents by HonorĂ© des PrĂ©s I have tested. What remains is a waft of carrot, but only if I sniff my arm â€“ and I have a very sensitive nose. Disappointing. I found this comment at fragrantica: â€śmaybe hard to wear everyday if you are not a rabbitâ€ť.
