    Re: Green Gucci Pour Homme?

    The regulations are from the European Union folks in Brussels. Of course, France is part of the EU, but it's IFRA

    Laudano might refer to the labdanum in the base note, though my dictionary says laudano = laudanum, labdano = labdanum. Maybe a laudano is a variant form of labdano​?
