A light leather chypre with a beautiful floral heart and slightly soapy dry down. Perfect for those times that a heavy leather is too much, like in the heat of summer when, if someone gets a good whiff of full-on Cabochard, they might ask, "Where's the horse and saddle I keep smelling?". Air de Cabochard is mild-mannered and sophisticated, and the soapiness in the dry down is clean and refreshing. I'm going to be wearing this all summer and my friends will ask, "Where's the classy lady who just shampooed her horse?"

ELLENISIA is so pretty and happy, like a clear morning in spring still clinging to winter’s chill. (LOTR fans should get that reference.) Sometimes violet can make me sad, as in Apres L'Ondee, but not Ellenisia. It stays green and upbeat, all the way through. It's slightly green opening is surprisingly similar to AL'O but without the anise. Although I love AL’O, I think I would prefer Ellenisia as it must be the anise in the opening that seems to pull my mood down.
