    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

    Tom Ford Private Blends
    Black Violet
    (2007)

    Top Notes: Citrus fruits, Fruity notes
    Middle Note: Black Violet
    Base Notes: Moss, Woody notes
    Strange and a little raspy at first, this eventually sorts out to a very
    subtly resinous place after passing through some violet-evocative notes. I say "violet-evocative" because this is not the modern take on violet — that's more about violet leaf than it is about the elusive floral violet, which is impossible to distill from the plant and must be hinted at through the use of ionone and other synthetics. The "violet" in this fragrance takes after the floral side in spades. It is well balanced, however, with citrus and other fruity notes in the top, and nicely anchored in a mossy-woody base. This gives the scent the feel of a chypre. It's a fairly deep take on the title player, but then most of the Special Blends are at least somewhat deep and dark. This one, though, does manage to end on a subtler note. It becomes quite soft and elusive at the end. In my book, it's one of the better ones from this series.

    Hmmm. Fleeting topnote of oranges - sweet and nice but very quickly gone.

    Followed by celery - lots and lots of celery for about 10 minutes.

    Now turning into a faded floral.

    My goodness this is some magical juice. I'll look forward to how it plays out the rest of the day.
