    Default Jean-Charles Brosseau

    Does anyone have any info or reviews on any of the male fragrances by Jean-Charles Brosseau? Today I smelled three extraordinary scents from this house: Collection Homme Atlas Cedar; Collection Homme Fruit de Bois and Collection Homme Thé Brun.

    Out of the three, I liked Fruit de Bois mostly, but they are all very intriguing, and I might have to go back and get one!

    The Thé Brun was radical; it practically whacked me in the face with the strongest, darkest tea ever, and I was wary at first. But it has dried down (on a piece of card) to something quite sublimely beautiful, but not sure if I could wear that one.

    These scents have a certain quality that reminds me a lot of the Creed house note -- that elusive special something. Definitely worth checking out!

    I was impressed with this line when I sniffed at Roja Dove's place a year ago. It's funny, my favourite was the The Brun.

    If your French is up to it, here is some info on them........

    Thanks for that info your highness. Thé Brun is certainly the one that makes a statement, a bold and powerful statement. I managed to find one review on it here, since last posting:

    To me it was the most extreme tea I've ever encountered. There is a cumin note I see from the osmoz entry, so that could account for some of the radical tone of this frag. But it was tea, not cumin that swamped me, so the cumin is obviously well-blended in the mix.
