During a recent visit to Paris I stumbled upon the L'Artisan Parfumeur store at Musee Louvre. I tried this fragance, and was instantly smitten by it. I agree with many reviewers that classify it as "the most masculine L'Artisan scent". The spice (apparently based on the legendary "absinthe" or wormwood plant with alleged alucinogenic properties that caused people to see "la fee verte" during those Toulouse Lautrec can-can fin-de-secle days in Paris) is enrobed in liquorice and anise, wood notes, and even some citric afternotes (which are quite rare). It has a good fixer and lasts all day. A wonderful find, very much a smoothly intoxicating night/wintery fragance, it screams to be worm at night.
