    En Passant by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    This is the sort of cool and wet green floral scent you catch in passing as you walk past a windswept garden, or trudge along the edge of a dew-drenched forest. You can smell it in whiffs but you can't quite identify where the heavenly scent is coming from. The water element (presumably from the cucumber note) is well-rendered: crystal in its clarity and refreshingly cool. Projection is excellent, with more than a touch of muguet in the florals.

    I really don't understand why gender identity needs to be assigned to scents as wonderfully evocative as this. Much like PdN LeTemps d'une Fête in 2006, EN PASSANT is fit for ALL mankind. Not the most compelling of Giacobetti's compositions but extremely well-executed.
