    Default Maître Parfumeur et Gantier - Garrigue

    I just bought a bottle of Maître Parfumeur et Gantier - Garrigue last night. This stuff is wonderful, a herbal cologne the way it should be. What hits me is the blending of the fragrance. It starts out with a citrus lemon bang and then dries down onto a subtle, but assertive scent. Thyme, Vetiver, Sage, bergamot Orange are all the main notes. I detect a tiny touch of vanilla and cinnamon, but it is barely noticable.

    This is not a 'fresh' scent, the herbals come through in a near perfect blend.

    I really like this one as well. To me, it is more of a summer scent. MPG is a niche house with some excellent AND challenging scents. I am a big fan of them. My SOTD is Santal Noble.

    Only in its top notes, and in that it might fill the same place in a fragrance wardrobe. It's an outstanding and very underrated fougere scent, considerably drier, edgier, and more herbal than Green Irish Tweed. See my review and pluran's here.

    I haven't tried it, but it sounds much closer to Gigli's Sud-Est than to GIT.

    There are no violet leaves in this and I dont get the GIT comparison. This is soapy with a bit of herbal thing going on. Its also a bit blander than the grassy smooth violet leaves-sandalwood-ambergris blend of GIT. Also, if applied heavily, the bitter herbal aspect of Garrigue comes out more (is it the thyme??). I dont recall Sud-Est right now but the_good_life might be spot on with his suggested alternative.

    Hmm, I belive it is the Thyme. For me a couple sprays is all that is needed.

    I actually find Garrigue to be a less synthetic ringer for Joop's Nightflight.. with far less sillage...
