    Top Notes: Bergamot, Pineapple, Herbal Notes
    Middle Notes: Lavender, Jasmine
    Base Notes: Musk, Woods, Amber, Moss
    A rather traditional fougère-style scent that doesn't seem to have any coumarin notes in the pyramid. Still, it is a bit herbal and mutedly floral with some spicy aspect that also seems not to be listed in the pyramid. The base is very classic for men's fragrances: amber, moss, musk, and unspecified woods. The woody note seems to have a bit of a leather cast to it, so it may be birch. it seems to be a real eau de toilette strength, and so not extremely long-lasting, but it doesn't do too badly in that way either. Its chief appeal is that it's kind of stereotypically masculine in a gentler, more refined sort of old-school way. Definitely male, but not a big, bold 80s-style power scent. Its drydown is really quite satisfying. I give it high marks. It's a pity it isn't better known, but it comes from a South American company in Bogotá, Colombia, though the nose, I believe, is from Geneva, dans la Suisse romande (French-speaking Switzerland). Et voilà!
    Yr good bud,

    It seems like its my week for discontinued scents as I wear my third of the week in:

    Balenciaga pour Homme (Thanks Circa1905)

    In the directory this has been described as Kouros Light and at the top the two scents are very similar.
    As Balenciaga progresses into its heart the paths diverge as the volume comes way down and a softness embodied by a floral heart with some honey comes in. The base is all the traditional sandalwood, patchouli, with a hint of vanilla of so many men's scents. The heart of this is the special part of this one and allows for one to have a "Kouros Day" without knocking the whole office out.

    Have a great Friday everyone.
