    Giorgio for Men (1984)
    by Giorgio Beverly Hills

    Today, I am wearing some from one of my vintage bottles.

    A rich mossy woods chypre that was my signature scent for more than
    twenty years and, many fragrances later, is still my holy grail.

    Top notes: Orange, Carnation, Cinnamon
    Middle notes: Patchouli, Amber, Vanilla
    Base notes: Benzoin, Honey, Oakmoss
    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

    Givenchy
    Givenchy III
    (1970)

    Top note: Aldehyde Complex, Bergamot Oil, Galbanum, Gardenia, Peach
    Middle note: Carnation, Jasmin, Jonquil, Lily of the Valley, Orris, Rose
    Base note: Amber, Castoreum, Myrrh, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Vetiver
    (2007)
    Top Note: Galbanum, Hyacinth
    Middle Note: Rose, Jasmine
    Base Note: Oakmoss, Patchouli
    This time, I'm wearing an older EdT formulation. (I'm not sure if it's the original 1970 version, but it's definitely pre-2007.) I can safely say that this version is more complex than the new one, if not as "clean" or "brisk." It is very obvious to the nose that the top note is more complex right from the moment of application; the gardenia and peach notes support the other opening factors quite clearly. The drydown is also more evidently elaborate, where the myrrh and animalic notes especially stand out and strengthen the last chord. The middle still seems to have a hyacinth note, but it is considerably denser with the carnation and additional white florals, particularly the green-tinged lily-of-the-valley. The orris also adds an earthiness that is no longer there in the 2007 version. Nothing I say here is meant to dis that newer scent; it is beautiful and well-made in its own right — brighter, cleaner, brisker, altogether more suited to the "modern" taste. But the older scent is a green chypre in the classic mold, comparable to Chanel No. 19 and others in that style.

    Today, it's Guerlain's Attrape Cœur - perhaps the most catching detail in this oriental confection is its hidden whiffs of Mitsouko's mysterious scent of peachy oak moss. Some would even claim that Attrape Cœur really is Mitsouko turned into an oriental, and while this may be an overly simplistic view, it's not entirely untrue either.

    Going to the Angola prison rodeo today and think it'll be Eau de Rochas pour Homme since it is rather warm and activities will be outside. Hoping for a fun, if not unusual, day!
