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, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

A very pleasant green floral, in my opinion suitable for both sexes. It strikes a fresh-floral note and reveals the green and mossy woods aspects more and more as it dries down. Citrus, fruity, and green notes (with marigolds) in top lead off, followed by a floral bouquet of white flowers with honeysuckle, orris, and a light rose, all supported by a base of woods, musk, and moss. This is especially good to wear in fine weather; it matches the sunny mood. Its a pretty optimistic scent, giving one a feeling that everything is going to be just fine: "Everything's coming up roses and daffodils" (well, narcissus...). A very definite thumbs up for this Daniel Molière classic from 1982.
Yr good bud,

First time trying Diptyque Philosykos (thanks to Lady in Black for the chubby sample).
Too early to form an opinion, but I sense that the number of Diptyques that I can't live without will probably rise to 3 after today.
Looking for a sample of Gucci Envy Me.

For a big "RAVE" tonight nothing better than Germaine Cellier's
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

Awoke in the middle of the night...in the dark, groped around for something to spritz (got a bevy on the nightstand - much more important than tissues or a glass of water) and came up with one of the gingerbreads BlackCat sent me...so it's gingerbread for the rest of the day!
Will maybe enhance with
