    Private Collection - Querelle by Parfumerie Generale

    As more and more classic chypres become reformulated, I find I miss that deep, ashy, dry dark brooding that is a hallmark of oakmoss. Querelle has that quality and I find I like it more and more because of it, as the classics slowly disappear to become 'vintage'.
    This is a very creative fragrance, using note combinations that are unusual and cerebral, in that my mind is usually trying to tease apart the notes when I wear it. It can never quite come to grips with the shifts this fragrance makes, from incensy to chypre to bitter to grassy, all in dark tones.
    This has a real timeless quality about it, seeming to have its own character, which I like. Though I can't wear it all the time, when I can it's awesome.
