    Jean Pascal Cologne

    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,

    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, ......

    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.
