    Floris
    Eau de Santal
    (2002)

    Top Notes: Sicilian Bergamot, Lavender
    Middle Notes; Black Pepper, Clove Bud Oil, Cardamom
    Base Notes: Patchouli, Tree Moss

    It does smell a bit like sandalwood, though there's none in the pyramid. Basically, it's the spices and the patchouli-oakmoss that make this scent. Bergamot is always a nice touch... I suppose this is technically not a chypre, because there's tree moss rather than oakmoss in it, but it kind of qualifies. I like this for cooler (but not cold) weather. It does seem to project a bit, but not excessively. It's warm and slightly spicy because of the clove bud oil and cardamom. Like many Floris masculines, it's "safe" for office wear, so I'll go with that for a casual Friday.

    Hermèssence Ambre Narguilé
    HERMES

    A spicy oriental that is often referenced as a foody-comfort scent. It opens with heart-warming, sweet gourmand notes; think danish pastry in the oven. As it evolves a radiant amber surfaces, but never dominates. Can't help but smile at how such a composition could work so well.
    Have a great day basenoters!

    IMO, the best Diptyque, EAU LENTE,

    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..."
