Yesterday Cafleurebon reported that Caron's L'Accord (Code 119) would be released in the U.S. this summer. This is good news, to me at least, as my love for L'Accord has not diminished since I wrote about it last summer and spent time basking in my waft.
The bad news is that they are calling it a fruity floral. Which is too bad, because to me that conjures sweet dreck celebuscents for the young. This one is not cloying, it is not too sweet, the flowers (rose and what??) are imbued in a gently raspy chord of patch and musk with herbal elements that emerge as you wear it.
I've enjoyed it in Paris heat and Chicago blizzard. If the report is true, I'll be one happy camper, knowing I don't have to get my passport stamped in order the replace my bottle. That's some expensive ink, after all.
EDIT TO ADD: Marina has done some sleuthing, and cloak and dagger operations reveal that the stateside release will happen in March. Which isn't so far away, after all....
