Aimez-Moi Comme Je Suis by Caron 2020

Hey Posse, Caron is owned by Cattleya Finance since 2018. It seems they have been taking stock and getting a feel for the company before launching anything new. It’s so interesting that they chose to market their first new outing to the boys. Needless to say, this is actually a unisex fragrance, it has facets from both major genders playing fields and melds them seamlessly. It could easily have been marketed to ALL genders. Interesting also that the name they chose has echoes of other Carons: N’Aimez Que Moi (1917) and Aimez-Moi (1996). The moment I read that this was coming I organised a split here in Australia and sent to Paris for two bottles. One I would keep and the other my very dear buddy Scotty would get, after we had split off the required amounts.

Aimez-Moi Comme Je Suis by Caron 2020

Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Grapefruit, Ginger, Haitian vetiver, Hazelnut

The new bottle style has a hefty weight, the cap is metal, and the name plate is a pressed metal plate. It feels like an expensive and impressive production. The dark chrome finish is very nice, a retro modernity. I can easily imagine single perfume owners displaying this one Aimez-Moi Comme Je Suis bottle proudly. Caron is also steeped in history but not one of the brands that shouts itself from the rooftops, that should appeal the the sort of clientele that lives like that. I’m thinking it will make very nice gifting, especially for someone who takes pride in themselves but in a cool, laid back kind of way.

How does it smell?

Initially I’m hit with a spicy woodsiness. It’s that fabulous fresh citrus cold water style but here it is washing over cool dark woods with a scorched nutty style backdrop. The ginger then zings into action and suddenly the fragrance warms through and becomes a happy non gourmand footy adventure. Do you know that sugared ginger that you buy by itself or chocolate encased? This ginger is like that, sweet and tangy. I know they aren’t mentioned but I smell resins, like elemi and maybe even frankincense. That vetiver is dry grassy (but not hay) and has a light salt tinge. The fragrance has hit is heart and chugs along merrily for hours. It doesn’t exactly change much after here but if you find yourself busy and forget the fragrance it will snap you to attention every now and then, reminding you how gorgeous and different it is. Seriously, I can’t think of anything else that comes even near it in my collection.

Aimez-Moi Comme Je Suis is good. Better than so much else being released right now and very competitively priced. I think we might be seeing a new era of Caron ion top. Fingers crossed eh?

Does it sound like you?

  1. Hey Portia
    It doesn’t sound like me but it does sound like I’d find it pretty sexy on someone else. That candied goner note is a nice twist. Good to hear your blind purchase was a successful one.
    it is funny how the name seems like an amalgam of older Caron perfumes.

  2. Caron is one of my fave houses. I don’t want them to change. This sounds terrible to me, and I hate that bottle. Looks like everyone else now. Lost in a sea of mediocrity.

    • Hey GinaT,
      Yeah, it’s sad when our great loves have to revolutionise.
      I’m sure if they remained profitable they’d not have to move into the future. Sadly they’ve apparently been losing money like crazy. Change or die time.
      I don’t understand why you are so against the bottle. It’s only a minor update on the traditional mens style bottle with a cool metal plate added.
      Do you have plenty of the old Caron?

  3. I know that I’m missing out, but somehow Caron is a brand with which I’m barely familiar. I tried just a couple of their perfumes so far. And since none of them won me over, not having an easy access to testing the brand at a store, I’ve never pursued it.

    I’m glad you got it: I think that the chase itself adds to the enjoyment if perfume proves to be to your liking.
