    Who poured Jicky in my citrus cologne?!?

    My first time trying this, as the civet lightly farted in under Eau du Gantier's pleasant citrus cologne topnotes, I just about wrote it off. But the smells I initially found shocking ended up being incredibly compelling. I couldn't stop sniffing myself as new combinations of aromas kept arriving with the passing hours. And now I wholeheartedly give an enthusiastic thumbs up.

    So what does it smell like? Well, it's got that standard Eau smell of citrus followed by orange flowers. It's also got some dirty fougere elements, mostly upfront lavender over poop. It's also got the MPG house notes - that sandalwood from Santal Noble and their favorite blackberry. That's an awful lot of potentially conflicting ingredients, but somehow it always smells interesting and often quite amazing.

    For one, the lavender and citrus on top combine to smell especially juicy and dirty (in a good way). The civet and the sandalwood combine to smell remarkably like Tam Dao, and there's an especially magic point in the middle where the orange blossom combines with the blackberry with the musky sandalwood underneath that's absolutely worth tracking down a sample in order to experience.

    As a side note, my sample from MPG is clearly called L'Eau Du Gantier, with an L. I'm assuming it's the same perfume...

    Eau de Gantier is a very soft, clean, and honest fragrance—beginning with the clear and clean citrus top, continuing through the soft and delectable blackberry / verbena heart, and further on through the smooth fruit / sandalwood base. Eau de Gantier doesn’t project very much nor does it last very long, but it’s so charming as it does what it does. This is an enticing and quality fragrance—it radiates subtle elegance and translucent panache. I think of it as a unisex fragrance—and it’s an excellent one.

    It is certainly difficult to expand on calchic’s review: all I can do is rigorously agree with her views.

    Very, VERY lovely fragrance; I see it's categorized here as both feminine and unisex and that makes sense, as it's certainly clean and spicy enough for wear by both guys and gals. Has a little of the same spirit as Calypso Homme but this one is more about summer hikes through the woods than sultry days spent in tropical settings. Eau de Gantier begins with a tart, cleansing wash of citrus and then opens into blackberry and raspberry spiked with verbena. The hints of soapiness and spiciness must come from the sandalwood at the base and the way that it interacts with the other notes; the clean musk basenote is pretty quiet here and in no way resembles that in Eau de Mure, another MPG berry-musk combo in which the musk plays a central role, or the one in L'Artisan Mure et Musc, for that matter. Those fragrances, with their heady musk components, are all about sexy to me; the Eau de Gantier is simply pure and outdoorsy, no ulterior motives, no seductive undertones, just fresh and approachable. This is a sunny, friendly, energetic fragrance, seriously easy to wear. Staying power is so-so but since I only put this on in the hottest months, that's not an issue and doesn't bother me. The progression of fresh, zesty notes makes frequent reapplication a pleasure anyway.
