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

Les Parfums de Rosine
Top Notes: Mandarin Wood, Bergamot, Neroli, Pink Peppercorns, Galbanum, Rose
Middle Notes: Bulgarian Rose, Violets, Cumin
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Amber, Patchouli, Rosewood
A remarkable rose accord that smells like a men's cologne. In his review in The Guide, Luca Turin says this is founded on a base called Animalis™ by Synarome, which he says includes allusions to castoreum and civet. That may well be; or could it be that the list of notes includes cumin to throw us off? Who can say. Anyway, the galbanum and rose (with citrics and spice for reinforcement) in the top note introduce the delicate rose and violet heart and its slightly dirty cumin smudge, and set it all up on a foundation of oriental woods, roots, and amber. The upshot? A slightly puzzled look and the thought : "Why does this guy's cologne remind me of roses?"
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.

I love cologne.

“Hastiness and superficiality are the psychic diseases of the twentieth century, and more than anywhere else this disease is reflected in the press.”--Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Oscar For Men
I`ve always thought this is a somewhat misunderstood scent in general. (Talking about underrated!)
I love this almost as much as I love Pour Lui.
Oscar FM is very well made, soothing blend of woods, pepper, leather and fresh aldehydic notes. Smells like
a crisp, early morning by the water.
Just bought me a bottle of this, after spending few years with couple of miniatures.
