Reviews of Charmes et Feuilles

Sage bundles, fresh air.
Ancient herbs, stream-shaded trails.
How the West won you.

The strong aroma of surgical spirit (methyl salicylate, wintergreen) and cough mixture here leads me to suppose it may be suitable for members of the nursing profession. Or indeed for doctors (such as myself). Would I wear it on my rounds? Well yes, I might. It has an appealing freshness and a certain originality about it. One spritz three times a day should keep me on top form.

Genre: Green Floral

Here’s a case where testing a fragrance without reference to other reviews leaves me in the role of sole diss(c)enter. I’m not sure what my impression might have been had I read all of the unstinting praise from fellow Basenoters, but sniffing blind I’ve found Un Parfum de Charmes et Feuilles an unfortunate example of the fragrance whose development traces a consistent downward arc.

The opening smells of stemmy green hyacinth, narcissus, sharp aldehydes, and minty herbaceous notes, and so long as the herbs hold out the effect is pleasantly refreshing. Once they disperse, what remains is a harsh, soapy lily-of-the-valley reconstruction that smells first of good shampoo and later of Glade lily-of-the-valley air freshener. The extended drydown is in immaculate imitation of White Linen, only a good deal more abrasive (read: “cheap”). My experience is so at odds with all before me that I suspect either my nose or a recent, bad reformulation.

Fresh and soft. Smells really good and clean. Bit of a medicinal/herbal touch, would work better as a room fragrance to me.

Utterly charming. One of those ‘What is it?’ scents, but so light and breezy, you give up trying to figure it out and just go with it. The herbs are airy and abstracted and they encircle the lightest of jasmines in a cheerful green dance. What Miyake’s A Scent could have been if it had been structured better. Towards the end of its cycle a cardamom note develops that makes the wearer smell like a milky pudding; the only miss-step.

Quite exceptional herbal and leafy with an extraordinary opening and a spicy and cheerful dry down with very elegant vetiver and sage. The floral notes on my skin are subdued although marjoram could be the special one here as I at least don’t get Jasmine. The mint makes for a piquant opening that follows the development of the fragrance. Charmes et Feuilles does smell old fashioned but it’s also unexpected, long lasting and warm. I am very happy with this one given that some other offerings from TDC although beautiful are very light with small projection. After 4 hours Charmes et Feuilles stays close to the skin... still not too close. If you like herbal concoctions, or should I say elixirs, you should certainly try this one.
