    Givenchy
    Vétyver Les Parfums Mythiques
    (2007)

    Top Notes: Bergamot, Vetiver
    Middle Notes: Coriander Leaf, Vetiver
    Base Notes: Sandalwood, Vetiver

    I must say this smells vaguely familiar to me, though I cannot recall ever having seen it before. Givenchy claims they are relaunching a men's EdT from 1959. It is the coriander leaves that make the scent; the top notes are citrus and the base, wood. The vetiver, of course, is everywhere. The overall impression is quite distinct from any other vetiver fragrance I have smelled. The coriander leaf is a kind of rough green herbal note that isn't exactly spicy, but suggests a hint of spice. Strangely, in this mix it doesn't smell very much like the coriander leaves you use in cooking (the familiar cilantro of Latin American and Asian cuisine). The vetiver (in itself a rather earthy note) somehow transforms the coriander leaf into something less pungent and more... well, exotic... and ethereal. I think if I hadn't seen the note listed on the tester bottle, I wouldn't have been able to guess it was coriander leaf. The juice is really very captivating. I sprayed a little on one hand, and nine hours later, I can still smell it quite clearly; and though it is projecting quite a bit less than it was at first, it maintained a respectable sillage for about five hours. There isn't a very complex development, but there is some, going from a rather distinct light vetiver to revealing the green coriander, and then stabilizing to give a lighter impression, altered to a woodier vetiver. The phrase I would use for the overall effect is a kind of earthy-ethereal depth.

    I'm astonished that most of you gents in the USA can post what you'll be wearing in the morning! Its 7.25am CET, so its still night over there right?

    I can usually only ever decide on my scent at the last minute, whilst standing in front of my open fragrance drawer... unless its a special event or occasion where Ive planned my scent ahead.

    Gotta make up my mind in advance. Don't have time to stand around in the morning trying to decide what to wear when I've got to make it to the gym by 6:00 a. m. opening time... It's in my gym bag, all packed and ready to go when I swing out the door at 5:30 a. m. tomorrow.

    Many thanks to LedByMyNose who provided today's scent...a sample of Tocca's Cleopatra.

    Here are the notes: Sparkling Grapefruit, Lush Greens, Cassis Bud, White Jasmine, Peach Nectar, Tuberose, Patchouli, Golden Amber, Vanilla Musk

    ... on me the greens stand out, nicely underpinned with the jasmine, and the light ambery vanilla is a sweet lingerer (is that a word?) Uplifting for a chilly day.

    Trying something new instead of something discontinued today:

    Serge Lutens Serge Noir

    This starts off really sweet on me before the incense and spice in the heart come to the fore front. Somewhere on the road to the base there is an accord that comes off very generic a woody mix that smells like so many others. For a scent that starts so imaginitively to end in such a pedestrian manner makes this a disappointment on me.
