“Here’s to women who play with fire and the perfume that they can smolder in.” — from a review of this scent by Barbara Herman at Yesterday’s Perfume.
“Poivre” is French for “pepper”, named after the fragrance’s hot spicy pepper top note and now I really want to smell it.
Caron’s Poivre squeaked in at #10 in this list of The World’s 10 Most Expensive Perfumes Ever Created.
You can pick up 90 ml. of this perfume on Etsy for the low, low price of $2,130! (used)
