    This is an outstanding fragrance - a parfum essence and quite pungent!

    Parfums Grès
    Homme de Grès
    (1996)

    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.

    Of which I have tried, this is still definitely my favourite one from Ellena. A mainstream success, that is "underrated"(?) among many frag-heads.

    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.

    In beautiful Molinard Fleur de Figuier (Les Fleurs de Provence) from Miss C. A different fig scent, showcasing the dry green and cool aspect of fig as opposed to creaminess of L'Artisan Premier Figuier, woody sweet earthyness of Diptyque Philosykos and honeyed ripeness of Balenciaga Cristobal. A must try for every fig fan. (You know what to do, do you? )

    Jicky edt this morning.

    It is my very first time with Jicky. I haven't fallen in love like this in a very long time. I had forgotten how much I could love a fragrance. This is olfactory perfection to me. Jicky might be my desert island fragrance. Or...if I could only have six, Jicky would definitely be one of them. It certainly has a lot of character for an edt, doesn't it? This is why I love fragrance...that element of surprise. I have embarked on a classics sampling phase and I can't wait to try some others, but I can't imagine anything better than this.

    For my trip back to Florida a scent that reminds me of growing up there. Also one that won't choke my seatmates on the plane:

    Frederic Malle Bigarade Concentree

    Like it even more the second time around. Just feels like Terre D'Hermes more understated brother. Really great scent.

This is beautiful, though it's weird, I'm actually getting cigarette smoke notes rather than tobacco in places. It also seems unavailable in the US. Has anyone seen this (the 2003 Richard James, not the Richard James Cologne by Richard James) in the Marshall's jackpot anywhere? I might "need" a small bottle...


    Top Notes: Bergamot, mandarin, ginger, green tea leaves, petitgrain, rosemary, basil.

    Base Notes: Suede, patchouli, sandalwood, tobacco, amber, vetiver, musk, oak moss.
