You probably thought that Mile High 38 from Parle Moi de Parfum was just another pineapple-centric scent. Ever since that other popular pineapple scent got famous, it has inspired a lot of copycats. But this house is not a ‘follower,’ and has unique ideas with familiar themes. You get a different kind of pineapple in Mile High 38.
It’s a dark pineapple. It’s not the Sunny Dole juice kind. It is brooding, melancholy, and it is right up my alley. Paired instantly with immortelle, it feels a little musky, like it has been sitting in a box for a while.
The patchouli then comes in which makes it a lot earthy. The oineapple is still there, still ripe and juicy, but the effect is not beachy and umbrellas, but more night drink at a bar. I like it a lot, as it is very unique, and it is a perfume that will make you think and ponder.
