    This is an interesting scent, and if the notes appeal to you then I recommend that you try it.
    It starts with a rather powdery and dusky lavender. Next to appear is an unusual note: it is very green, herbaceous, and complex. At times it is a bit spicy/peppery and at other times a bit rubbery in a pleasant way. I attribute this to the myrtle. There may be very faint hints of minty rosemary. At this point, this is an ideal "garrigue" scent -- evoking the dusty herbaceous hills of Provence. The early dry-down continues in a green/earthy vein, and I like it quite a bit. The later dry-down gets sweeter, and amber/powder notes appear. I like these less, and they keep the scent from being bottle-worthy for me. However, overall it is a good scent.

    Wierd stuff. It starts with a blast of lavender, but that quickly disappears. Then it is replaced by a jumbled mix of who-knows-what which eventually morphs into the same drydown as Petit Ange, her perfume for children. And the it lasts and lasts and lasts until you are uncomfortable or, at the very least, bored out of your gourd. Remember, I warned you.

    One of my all time favorite EDC concoctions. I disagree with the feminine classification here on Basenotes. When I bought it from PD Nicolai she was describing it as unisex, and I would agree. This is a masterful brew. If you like lavender, this is one of the finest treatments of lavender you will ever smell. It is not very long lasting, but it is truly divine.

    Starts with clean lavender then changes into something darker. Think of an old overgrown forest, not dank but lots of woods and flowers growing wild the scent mingles.

    Smells like standing in a garden of wild flowers and herbs during summer. Labender, myrtle, rosemary, oak and orange blossoms. Fresh, clean, light, and incomparable.
