off topic: You guys see the price of Un Bois Sepia, Bois de Violette, and Bois et Fruits. $200??! For $30-$40 more you can get a bell jar!

Trying out a sample of Opus 1870. I really like it but I'm not sure if I want to smell like it for any extended period of time. I guess there is such a thing as TOO much cedar.

Cuir Pleine Fleur
Notes: Violet, Mimosa, Birch, Soft Leather Notes, Vetiver
"Cuir pleine fleur" is the French term for the highest quality leather. This scent is really quite a good leather, using birch and suede notes to carry the leather impression, and supplementing and supporting them with rather green-tinged florals (violet and mimosa). Vetiver in the base gives this a good anchor for longevity and a decent sillage. It is really rather captivating, recalling somewhat such famous and classic suede-leather scents as Tabac Blond and Cabochard. A definite keeper!

Yr good bud,
