I think L'Artisan was the role model for ELdO. Their fragrances have always seemed a touch quirky to me. MN #10 is no different. It's basically an incense over amber scent, but it has a sort of steely/flinty aura about it. At some points during it's progression, I thought I was wearing Messe de Minuit. Long lasting and very nice.
Crayola Crayons. The 52-piece set in a New uncracked Box... bottled. Still can´t decide if I like to smell like 'em, but if you loved that smell of freshly colored figures on manilla paper as a child (and I did), this is heaven.
I have never smelled a WAXIER take on the mineral-ridden incense vibe, and the atlas cedar just enforces the image (as if the crayons have now become wax pencils carved with a sharpener, leaving the cedar shavings that add a rich and spicy woody veneer to the whole composition.
Odd, but delicious, and very long-lasting.
