    It's Sniff 'n' Speak CITRUS Saturday!

    it's considered a Crisp Citrus-Fruity Soft Oriental)
    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

    Creed
    Cyprès Musc
    (1948)

    Top note: Bergamot, Mint
    Heart notes: Cypress, Galbanum
    Base notes: Oakmoss, Ambergris, Musk
    Starts off with something jarring, discordant; I think it may be the mint disagreeing with the galbanum. That lasts for a few minutes. In fact, the first time I tried this on my skin, I was very put off by it. After a relatively short time (perhaps 15–20 minutes), however, things start to smooth out and the cypress begins to come out and dominate (or at least tame) the earlier accord. Then the scent becomes quite elegant and manly in a woodsy, musky sort of way, with a touch of the Creed signature ambergris rounding it out and mellowing it; and, voilà, the caper is pulled off smoothly and seemingly effortlessly!

    Acceptfacts, so glad to see Eclat d'Arpege getting a little love, particularly on the men's board! I managed a complete steal on EdA, locating a bottle in Boston's now-defunct Filene's Basement for $10. In my opinion, it's a lovely, if ephemeral, warm weather fragrance.

    For today's Citrus Sniff & Speak I am wearing my latest purchase (ouch ), Caron Alpona. For more on the purchase, see the "June Purchases" thread.



    I don't own a lot of citrus-heavy scents, and Alpona was a glorious and unexpected surprise. I also think it's unisex, the orchid notwithstanding.

    Notes: Lemon, grapefruit, bergamot, rose, orange, jasmine, orchid, thyme, patchouli, myrrh, cedar, sandalwood, musk, and oakmoss.
    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
