    by Nicole Miller

    Top notes: Apple, Honey

    Base notes: Amber, Musk, Sandalwood
    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
    Vol de Nuit
    (1933)
    Jacques Guerlain

    Top Notes: Galbanum, Narcissus, Orange, Mandarin, Lemon, Bergamot, Orange Blossom
    Middle Notes: Iris, Vanilla, Narcissus, Aldehydes
    Base Notes: Spices, Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Orris Root, Musk

    A wonderfully complex chypre with the addition of aldehydes. This is mainly floral, but classed sometimes as a spicy oriental because of the base notes. It has a strong green component in the top notes (galbanum) supported by citrus notes and white florals. The heart is iris and narcissus softened by vanilla and spiked with aldehydic notes. The pure perfume has a marked oriental feel, probably put forward by oakmoss, orris root, and musk; moreover, there is remarkable sillage and above average longevity. A Jacques Guerlain classic from the 1930s that still captivates today.

    Guerlain's Nahéma EdP from a vial. Can't decide whether I should get this one in extract or if it's simply too fruity-floral in the long run for me. But it's a magnificent rose scent anyway!

    Got all sorts samples yesterday - the most compelling of which is a delicious royal purple, and according to it's site is: "A sumptuous jasmin which smoothes its fur... A sigh of time."

    Care to guess?

    If you thought Sarrasins you'd be right!! (Manymany thanks to Sloan_8013. ) It opens with a curious medicinal, herbed greenness and quickly segues into a creamy deep-throated jasmine that does indeed have the purr of wet fur. Tres retro!

    I ADORE jasmine and this could climb onto my lust-list. Perfect for this promises-to-be-coolish Sunday!!
