    Pour Un Homme by Caron

    Lavender and vanilla, tout court? Not quite; that seeming simplicity is deceptive. There is an ample cast of supporting characters here, all pulling their weight to make those two notes shine. Behind the lavender, there is bergamot for definition, rosemary to reinforce the green and herbal side of it, and lemon to brighten it; also rose and rosewood for a floral and spicy lift, and clary sage for a slightly green muscatel vibe. For the vanilla, an oriental trio of powdery musk, hay-like tonka bean, and a touch of bitter oakmoss. A bright head, a rich heart, and a lush base: a masterpiece of balance and support for a transparent simplicity as light (but as precarious to achieve) as a perfect meringue.
