    François Charles by Rancé (don't get fooled by all these French names, they're based in the South-West suburbs of Milan) opens with a fairly cloying accord of musky-woody notes, mostly comprising a bold dose of cardamom and tonka, slight balmy notes (pine?), dark and dry flowers (carnation), a rooty-buttery carrot-like note, a light menthol note provided – I guess – by geranium and basil. Not stinky, even with some nice nuances and quite a rich texture for this type of scent (by type I mean class of quality): the accord of iris is basically non-existent, it's rather a earthy-rooty accord of cardamom, tonka, carrot and violet aromachemicals which basically "create" a sort of orris presence. Mossy-green hints all around. A general, invisible vibe of cheapness, but that's my impression. Basically a barely decent and fairly pretentious plain scent which may work for a dinner among not-that-trained noses.

    Disappointed. The product hype suggested a "walk in the forest" and the notes show herbs and woods. But this turns out to be a "fresh" - spice - musk sort of scent.
    The herbal notes are much too brief to count for anything. The spices are done in a sweet style and are prominent. The scent has a synthetic tang.

    This is basically an expensive niche version of Le Male. I lost my sample of this one, and only sprayed it once or twice several years ago. I can't give a full fledged review, but I can say it smelled like a more refined Le Male.. one of the better copies though. Though don't expect anything too natural, the notes still smelled quite synthetic.
