    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

    Guerlain
    Derby
    (1985)
    Jean-Paul Guerlain

    Top Notes: Artemisia, Bergamot, Lemon, Peppermint
    Middle Notes: Jasmine, Mace, Pimento, Rose
    Base Notes: Leather, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Sandalwood , Vetiver
    One of the all-time great leather-chypres for men. Guerlain introduced this in 1985 with the slogan "Barbare et Civilisé": "Barbarian and Civilized." That about sums it up; this is a grand marriage of classical chypré notes and the somewhat farouche, among which mace, pimento, and peppermint. Those were especially shocking juxtaposed with florals like jasmine and rose, hesperides like bergamot and lemon, and herbals like artemisia. On the skin, the scent itself is suave and debonair, but laced with rakish, rash, and outré elements
    that both delight the brave and dismay the faint-hearted. Bravo!

    Guerlain-- Habit Rouge Eau de Cologne


    Today was the first time I wore this that I felt completely comfortable in it. I don't like the powdery aspect of it that much-- it tends to be a little loud at first. I wore two sprays under my shirt, and about an hour into the drydown it became incredible. All of its facets finally lined up perfectly. I was at work and it was a lousy day, but the Habit Rouge was always there keeping me company.

    From the Marvy Mousie - a sample of Grosjman's Yvresse - a fruity chypre with topnotes of nectarine, anise, mint, violet, and a grain of cumin; a middle of otto rose, blue rose, and lychee; and a base of oakmoss, patchouli, vetiver, and vanilla. - onto the hit parade. Sumptuous - bosomy - Sophie at the peak of her powers. "Intoxicating" indeed - and definitely FBW.

    Many thanx Mousie!!
