    Carthusia
    Numero Uno
    (2007)
    Top notes: Orange, Bergamot, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Rosemary
    Heart notes: Ylang-Ylang, Violet, Patchouli, Thyme
    Base notes:
    Myrrh, Moss, Vetiver, Musk
    A chypre of unusually masculine character. In spite of the inclusion of ylang-ylang in the formula, this isn't remotely a stereotypical feminine scent in feeling. It may be the one note that rings false in this chime; it seems out of place with the more herbal floral of lavender, and certainly with eucalyptus and the other herbals. In conjunction with the musk, the sweet floral makes this scent a bit powdery at first, although that impression diminishes after the first twenty minutes or so. Then it blends more smoothly into the rest of the formula and largely loses the powdery aspect. This fragrance took a little getting used to for me; but once past the rough spot, I now like it quite a bit. In the end, it comes out as a slyly suave and even slightly rakish bit of work, the sort of thing to wear when one is in the mood for fun and a little taste of the offbeat in life.
    Yr good bud,

    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, ......

    After several warm and sunny holiday-days with Guerlain's Vetiver, Vetiver pour Elle and Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune, it's time for a warm perfume - it's turning windy, grey and rainy here in Denmark! So it's Héritage EdP today. As usual, I get reminded of how good and nostalgic it is for me. Pure pepper, coriander, cedar wood and vanilla. (Should I have sprayed more sparingly? Gosh it's strong.)

    Well Gentlemen after all of the support for this one recently and with an assist to Maisonstinky through my ScentMother i am trying:

    Montale Red Vetyver

    Wow!! I've read a number of scents called Terre D'Hermes more sophisticated brother. For me, I think this one is it. There is a blast of grapefruit to start before an incredible spiciness ushers this to a patchouli base along with some woody notes. The vetiver is here to support the whole process but I'm not finding it to be the major player.
    In my personal vote for best new men's scent of 2008 I'm still voting Hinoki but this one is very, very close.

    I am wearing this as well. I am not good at describing notes and stuff, but I got the spiciness of say the pepper in Piper Nigrum, but this is a smoother version of that pepper note. I get something that tempers the spiciness, so I cant say if it is grapefruit or not. It projects, but not as much as Piper Nigrum. Incredibly smooth.
