    Papyrus de Ciane by Parfumerie Generale

    I love this scent. One sniff, and I was smitten.
    Starts with an excellent galbanum blast which is quickly sweeted by the honey-clover note of broom. The scent becomes rich, with a very pleasant soapy vibe. It is substantial, even dense but not heavy. Very suave and a bit old-school, conveys an air of relaxed luxury. The dry-down has the slightly leathery, salty note one would expect from the moss. I don't get any watery notes noted by others, just the usual green punchy note of galbanum and the rich note of broom. In thinking about the broom, I'm reminded of SMN Ginestra. In my opinion, this is better, more restrained and wearable. Many hours later, it continues to wear well. It is aromatic and utterly pleasing to me.
