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

I used to think I liked Lanvin Arpège pour Homme even better than Dior Homme because it seemed drier to my nose. I think that impression comes from the patchouli in the base of Arpège pH. It seems to make a big difference in the overall feel of the scent. Now, I'm beginning to think that I like them both, but in different ways. the Lanvin does strike me as a bit drier and perhaps more stereotypically masculine than the Dior. But the remarkable thing about both of these is that they brought iris (orris root) back out of exile from men's perfumery; they set the clock back to 16th century Tuscany and made iris a men's note again. That wasn't easy. Others had been trying, mostly niche houses and "edgy" noses. These two were the ones that broke through to the larger market.

Not sure what to make of this one yet. Smells of the faintest mint and labdanum absolute (which is close to ambergris.) I initially just applied a tiny dab and could smell almost nothing. I just applied quite a bit more and am getting a whisper of the above mentioned notes (well, labdanum absolute is a whisper in itself, more "felt than seen" to steal from the ad copy.) I'm hoping for some kind of mood lifting effect. We'll see.
