Dior Jules has been in my wardrobe for about a year ever since Costello endowed me with a .5oz decant....I didn't really get it at first...Kinda grouped it in the same jailcell with Dior Eau Sauvage, YSL Pour Homme, YSL Haute Concentration....It was like EH same old same old...
Then today Dior Jules return to my hand like the prodigal son...and wow I almost dismissed this out of my wardrobe forever!
Musk, civet maybe.....a *tad* sweetness provided maybe by a little benzion or vanilla coupled with a woods base and a cinnamon note that pulls you into the pyramid and stays throughout the transformation....man what a good fragrance!
A year well spent!
Did someone say 'cinnamon'? ((looking around))
Jules, like so many Guerlain fragrances, I still have not tried.
"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"
-- Eckhart Tolle
