L'Etre Aime Homme by Divine - One is initially treated to a citrusy and fresh accord. The herb-like floral of lavender imparts its freshness. Bergamot contributes its bittersweetness. Ginger sprinkles its lively and fresh aspects, while basil adds its leafy greenness with a wisp of mint. A somewhat bitter celery seed intrudes from time to time. Transitioning to the heart, cardamon, with its sweetly spicy aroma, encases the opening melange. And, immortelle imparts its fengreek-like maple and curry facets. An undercurrent of vetiver, with its earthy and green character carries the grassy and spicy middle to the rather generic base. Here, a creamy sandalwood, a woodsy patchouli, as well as a balsamic and resinous cissus, with its accessions of ambergris, leather, smoke and sweetness, all commingle and lift a more caramel-like helichrysum. A comforting drydown ensues. This well-balanced and masculine composition is basically a skin scent with average longevity. Nothing exceptional, it is ho-hum.
