Not so much to add, Sycomore is an uncompromising clean (immediately starring) and elegant vetiver whose journey is embellished by coniferous notes, a well calibrated touch of smoke at distance and a peppery dose of incense. The floral patterns of the heart (probably a duo iris-violet) are obscure, lymphatic, softly "laundry" and slightly metallic being able to preserve the general cool, angular and subtle atmosphere of the olfactory work. The dry down is warmer bacause of the encompassing action from sandalwood and musk but the juice still turns out basically pure, sharp, dark of smoke and cool due to cypress and fir. The balance is extreme and a touch, but just a minimal touch, of tobacco rounds endly the smell, imprinting a more masculine undertone. Effectively similar to Encre Noir, Sycomore is a finally more rounded and complex fragrance with its womanly side that comes out at distance by its softly musky and aldehydic ( the Chanel landmark) floral nuances. A perfect scent for the lovers of the aqueous and slightly dusty kind of coniferous vetivers.
