L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme
SotE is Armani Privé Ambre Soie (sample).
Wow! Is this stuff great! Starts out really rich and "brown" with a thread of vanilla. After a few minutes, it's transformed to an amber (maybe the first time I've really picked out amber as an individual note) and caramel. There's a light hint of a beautiful, pure cinnamon (the spice, not the flavor).
After about 20 minutes, there's a smokiness to it that's really ethereal. And a hint of pepper.
Ambre Soie comes close to the Hermessence line in its effect - it's subtle and clear. But dense, almost chewy. It doesn't have the airy clarity of the Hermessence scents, but it doesn't linger in the nose.
This is one of those frags that makes me want to run out right now and buy a bottle. But the price is too prohibitive

...a recent buy on a tip from petruccijc
This is an amazing scent, which should be in the wardrobe of every woodaholic. The unique scent was worth every penny. My only complaint is that the sprayer assembly on my unit is a bit leaky somehow, so it doesn't travel well by mail or in the work bag.
" Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain."

For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm. - Vladimir Nabokov
