    SotD
    for a ride up to Mendocino
    Ulrich Lang
    Anvers 2
    (2007)

    Top Notes: Bergamot, Lime, Lemon, Black Pepper, Wild Basil, Rhubarb, Cypress
    Middle Notes:Bulgarian Rose, Jasmine, Lily, Mimosa, Cedarwood, Sandalwood Vetiver
    Base Notes: Tonka, Vanilla, Musk, Amber, Olibanum, Oakmoss

    This is a captivating scent. It grows on you slowly, but it blossoms beautifully. There's a lot going on in this scent. The pyramid is crammed with different notes, but somehow, it's all making beautiful harmony. Apart from the hesperidic notes in the top, the rhubarb and cypress (also in the headnote) pick up the cedar, sandalwood, and vetiver in the heart. The floral accord lends a touch of sweetness without overwhelming the greener, spicier and darker notes. Some oakmoss in the base gives this a chypre quality, anchored by the florals and bergamot; and yet this is balanced by oriental notes in the base. It's not cheap, but in my estimation, it's much better than some that are even more expensive!

    Mitsouko
    (1919)
    Jacques Guerlain

    Top Notes: Rose, Jasmine, Bergamot, Citrus
    Middle Notes: Peach, Jasmine, Lilac, Rose, Ylang-Ylang
    Base Notes: Oakmoss, Vetiver, Amber, Cinnamon, Spices

    Mitsouko, introduced in 1919, whose name is Japanese for "Mystery." The top notes of bergamot, mandarin, neroli and peach (the first peach synthetic used in a perfume) blend into a floral heart of jasmine, rose and ylang-ylang, anchored by oakmoss, benzoin, sandalwood, labdanum, myrrh, cinnamon, and musk. The rose lingers beautifully into the drydown, and the light spice and heat of the cinnamon infuses the whole with warmth and depth.

    Trying another new vetiver, for me.

    Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vetyver Haiti

    Another different take on vetiver from what I have worn before. This one starts out strong with a brisk woody top full of the astringency of vetiver. The scent then develops into this smooth amber at the base. Very interesting progression on my skin and so much better than I thought it was going to be based on sniffing on the strip.
    Have a great Friday everybody.

    From a sample - Balenciaga's Cialenga...after a fresh green opening,, light-hearted flowers over an equally light-hearted oriental base. Rully pretty for another warm day.
