This is a pure smooth woody oriental in a chypre style like nobody would make any more. Has Guerlain tinkered with this one?
The bottle I have seems the same as the original.

After yesterday's dense ball of wax this is refreshingly light but still having some complexity to it.
Hermes Vetiver Tonka.
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

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

- A spritz of Caron may be quite continental, but (a flacon of) Guerlain is a perfumisto's best friend...

But as a preview I am really enjoying Aegean four hours into wearing it. As I have enjoyed everything I've worn so far but one has stood out for me as just amazing for my sensibilities.
Which one? You'll have to wait and see. That's adding suspense to the shameless plug.
Or maybe not.
i always have good days when i wear it.
Rive Gauche by YSL
Tauer's L'Air du Desert Marocain, and I'm not even going to check the spelling because it's just a one-extra-button-undone, rock-it-on-the-first-take spring day in Baltimore. Oh, Andy, you shaman of chemistry, you make the women in my office pause by me and for a moment breathe colors and sounds.
Bois Du Portugal
Aliquando et insanire iucundum est.
Eau de Campagne - Sisley. High in the 80's today.
