Interestingly enough I discovered this fragrance in the most unexpected way when I spotted a bottle amongst my mothers perfumes and assorted toiletries during a random visit! She'd been given it as a gift by someone who didn't understand 'homme' is French for male *shakes head depressed*. Anyway still sealed and unused I promptly rehoused it in my own humble little collection (after politely asking and with dear mothers kind permission of course!)...I've since prasied that days good luck more than once, I have found it to be a great scent, very unique, certainly alongside my other scents in any case. The directory someone compares it to an afternoon walk alongside a river bank with the aroma of fresh earth after the rain. That says it perfectly for me...only trouble I have with this one is finding an occasion it fits. Just doesn't seem approppriate for most everyday activities, or god forbid a drunken night on the town. It's a refined genteel little scent that requires refined genteel enviroments to work it's magic really...but it's worth it because in the right setting, magical it is!
