What is a "traditional French chypre style perfume. " I barely understand what is meant by a chypre.
I see you lots on NST and I know that we share lots of loves, including the Sonoma Scent Studio line.
I know you adore this one. If you have a second, would you mind telling me scents it might be similar to? I understand from your note that Chanel No. 19 is, although that one has more galbanum. I see it's available online and I remember you've often raved about it on NST. I'm not a huge fan of super-powdery aldehydes; for example, if this is anything like the iris in Frederic Malle's Iris Poudre, that would be good to know, because it and I do NOT get along!!!!
Great to see you on Basenotes. I often refer to this site for reviews, but otherrwise I'm not really as active on it as I should be.
All the best,
Robin R. from Vancouver
