    Antaeus by Chanel

    Antaeus, the reigning god of chypre, introduces himself with a strong myrtle note accompanied by citrus and herbal accords. I find this opening attractive, if somewhat overpowering. Myrtle is not a note I smell frequently, but I do like its overall presentation in Antaeus. The mid notes of Antaeus are herbs and florals. The basenotes are where the gradual, magical transformation occurs. The beast is unleashed with a good dose of castoreum. Patchouli and oakmoss bring a dry warmth to Antaeus. The beeswax and labdanum accord is unique and provides enough sweetness to prevent Antaeus from becoming desolate and arid. Antaeus is a rich, warm, spicy, leathery and woody powerhouse that projects testosterone more than any of its listed notes. Wearing Antaeus makes you want to run for higher office, manage a hedge fund, or chop down a tree. Yes, its that kind of fragrance.
