    Oude Wood
    by Ava Luxe

    This is an outstanding fragrance - a parfum essence and quite pungent!
    Unfortunately, I have not been able to find any information about its history or note pyramid.

    I looked all over, but couldn't find a pyramid for this one. I suspect it's lemon, herbs, lavender, woods and a touch of leather scent and perhaps spice. So, a little smoky, a little leathery (birch tar?), but mostly herbal and citrusy. This is edgy enough to be bracing, but not enough to be annoying. The best thing about it its is straightforwardness. It gets to the point and keeps to it. It is not linear; rather, it develops quite nicely. Even so, it sticks to its theme and is consistently lemony.
    Yr good bud,

    Cartier : Déclaration

    Of which I have tried, this is still definitely my favourite one from Ellena. A mainstream success, that is "underrated"(?) among many frag-heads.
    Ladies love this one, and the most importantly, so do I.

    I'm in Dior Homme (Olivier Polge). Dry, slightly leathery, iris and peach. I don't get any lavender. The dryness tempers the sweetness to provide balance. There is a whiff of plastic about it, but it has enough goodness going on that it doesn't matter. I like it slightly better on someone else, and even better just from the bottle, but I'm still happy to wear it. It was a perfect choice for me this morning.

    I'm coming down with a cold and might not bother with fumes for the next few days if it gets any worse.

    Jillsy - L'Occitaine definitely used to have a vanilla edt. Some online searches might produce some.

    Lovely summer day here again and I'll be in my Eau d'Hermes to go to the Mai Markt in town. (May Market - no idea what this is but the Klaus Market at xmas was great, so...)
    Have a great day all.
