I loved the most Me Myself and I (the best after many years) and Jamais le dimanche while Prends garde à toi deserves its name.
I will come back with a detailed review and info on what's inside (it's vague on the website), but for now, just a few impressions.
Me Myself and I (Jean and Aurélien Guichard) - a tuberose plus smoky vetiver.
Extremely original perfume with a yeast note on top over a creamy sensual flower over a milky drydown. It's not a typical tuberose but a very creative, daring and unexpected. Something you have never smelled before and that's 100% creation and new!
Jamais le dimanche (Alberto Morillas) - ozonic incense
Highly unusual it seems like a big bubblegum in a church but it's not like Encens Bubblegum (ELO). After a time, the fruity note opposed to the incense floating in that huge Niemeyer dome reveals another surprise. This is Floramye of year 3000, an astonishing interpretation of a classic accord in a high tech space. But sorry I do not smell marijuana inside.
Fool for Love (Laurent Bruyère) - overdose punch/coconut frangipani
Tuberose bubblegum with just a milligram of caramel. It smells like an exotic pudding with rum where the dry down of Tuberose Couture is prisoner in an air bubble. Not pastry gourmand but perfect for the expression "grisé d'amour".
Piège à Filles (Anne Flipo) - oriental spicy heliotrop cumin
This perfume has no sex. It can be either a successful mix between Cologne Mugler and Brut Fabergé or a very light breeze suggesting Hypnotic Poison. Like a very soft heliotropine cloud over a love affair between sandalwood and lily of the valley. Cologne à l'ancienne pour Monsieur but this time is for Madame.
Prends garde à toi (Jean and Aurélien Guichard)
At the limit of pleasant and disturbing, it shows a note of patchouli in a bitter artemisia context. It's absinth plus marijuana in a lethal dose.
Poopoo Pidoo (Dominique Ropion) - rise powder musky animalic
The scent of a milky skin after using Kenzoki products (there is one based on musk+ rice pirazine and another one, gorgeus overdosed with heliotropine).
Sacré Cœur (Laurent Bruyère) - woody mineral leather
A disturbing patchouli with green notes and spices as they were used in Heritage.
You can look also on the wesbite. I don't like very much the way the creator of the brand is presented but I was surprised to see my blog there. I like also the graphic details.
