Black Phoenix Alchemy LabUmbra
"The deepest, darkest point in a shadow, the area contained within the shadow of an eclipse. East African black patchouli, cedarwood, vetiver and a dribble of cinnamon."

Middle Notes: Carnation, Clary Sage, Geranium, Jasmine, Rose
Base Notes: Amber, Cedar, Moss, Musk, Patchouli, Tonka Bean, Vanilla
A fougère with some chypré overtones. At times I think this is understated; at others, simply well-mannered. Definitely not loud. The only thing it reeks of is elegance. The fruit is there to enrich the other notes, but it's the aromatic nature of Le 3ème Homme that dominates. Lavender, rosemary and clary sage are the main players in that aspect of it. Clary sage in particular is the soft muscatel note which gives this its distinct character. Very good for daytime and casual wear, but also very much suited to the office.
Yr good bud,

I had trouble picking a fragrance today, but finally settled on J.L. Scherrer. Notes listed are rose, jasmine and iris, and lower notes of vetiver. On me, the green aspects of all -- including the florals -- are taking center stage, making this a very nice accompaniment to this rainy, somewhat chilly day. Think this could smell great on a guy, too.
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
