Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
ELdO Jasmine et Cigarette
"Wovon man nicht lesen kann, darüber muss man schreiben."
“As if everyone, all over the world, had his daily visually artistic task; the task of being an image for others.” Peter Handke
Notes: Lime, Pepper, Ginger, Star Anise, Cedar
A fresh, slightly chypré scent with a simple opening and a smooth drydown. The notes remain throughout in harmony; though the combination of notes gives a feeling of complexity,
the scent is essentially linear, with even the lime note persisting into the drydown. Essentially close to the skin, the sillage diminishes fairly quickly,
but the impression reemerges with moderate exertion. Simple, elegant, fresh; this is a great scent for work.

Yr good bud,

Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.

It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.

Guerlain, HERITAGE, again
The oldest, darkest bottle of vintage Derby that I own. Still amazed about how clear the fine accord of mint is preserved... (the one of the pic is the least dark of my vintage Derby's.)

Hey Dimitri, Thanks! I've never seen, or even heard of L' air du air du desert marocain before. As I perused the different posts, this bottle really grabbed my attention, I kept staring at the label, very cool, (imho) interesting name as well. So, right to the reviews and wow! It feels good to get excited about a new fragrance again, I was starting to think I was loosing my enthusiasm, that enthusiasm for the next interesting acquisition ? The hunt begins! Thanks again. BTW - I didn't see your review of the scent. ????
