    Cartier
    Essence de Must pour Homme
    (2000)

    Notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Anise, Ginger, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Vetiver, Patchouli, Tonka Bean
    A spice-laden juice that has more of the oriental or aromatic fougère about it than any other genre (because of the tonka bean in the base, I guess).The top is largely citrus with a good dose of anise, the heart a warm and unusual accord of cinnamon and ginger, and in the base quite a pronounced woody air with sandalwood, cedarwood, vetiver, and patchouli. Except for the absence of floral notes, the Essence version of Must pour Homme seems recall the feminine version rather than the other masculine offering. This strikes me as a cool-to-cold weather scent, primarily because of the hearty spice accords, and at the same time it seems to suggest an evening or slightly more formal context than the plain Must pour Homme. The longevity and sillage are fairly tenacious, and the development, while somewhat limited, does tend to play out to a subtler, woodier place than where it starts out. I find this very pleasant, a bit bracing and energizing, and an overall good thing. Kudos to Cartier for this!
    Yr good bud,

    Guerlain's Parure EdT and a tiny bit of extrait just to make it last. It's often called "Jean-Paul Guerlain's Mitsouko" because of the heavy use of oakmoss, and then plum instead of peach, lilac instead of jasmine. But it also features Jean-Paul Guerlain's own signature way of using a kind of wet, lush and "sexy-sixties" bergamot-top that was introduced with Habit Rouge and followed until Nahema in 1979.

    "Senseless"? Well, I've been called worse. Conjures images of being held down and beaten and then spritzed back to consciousness.
    I like this stuff. It has the green blackcurrent leaf of L'Ombre dans L'Eau but balanced with a very dry amber and some loamy earth notes, which give it a lighter more wearable feel. As the topnotes settle down, it comes into focus nicely.

    Hi, everyone!

    Big, huge intense family celebration coming up this weekend featuring DS#2, whose 13th birthday was a few days ago. I already fear I'm becoming "Mom-zilla."

    Today I'm giving a full-wearing to my sample of Tom Ford White Patchouli. It's a weird one... At first I thought I was in love, then it quickly became medicinal, and the white flowers/jasmine that hates my skin chemistry is making an unfortunately persistent appearance. But I'm also getting these wonderful whiffs of incense, and clean patchouli, and then the medicinal element (also the patchouli, I think) is a nice contrast. Hmmmm. This is very interesting! But I'm just not sure I smell _good_ in White Patchouli, which is generally my goal with perfume.

    White Patchouli notes: Peony, Mandarin, Bergamot, Jasmine, Rose Absolute, Coriander, Ambrette Seed, Sandalwood, Incense, Golden Amber. And, of course, patchouli (though they don't mention it in the note list on Sephora!).
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    It's a sunny Tuesday and we have a big couple of days at work ahead as we go through our ususal end of year assessment of how we did.
    I wanted something light today and I chose:

    Nasomatto Silver Musk

    This is probably the closest wearing scent I own. It is the epitome of a skin scent on me. It is also a wonderful scent because it has such a delightful development. The top is lightly floral and seems to be mainly rose this leads to that metallic incense note that I get from Silver Factory but here again it is layered in with a much lighter hand. In the base is the promised musk but subtle and warm. This is a lovely scent for one's self because there is no real sillage or projection. If you are looking for a close wearing, complex scent this might just be the one.

    I always get an image of oranges on stones (ala TdH) but near a white water river or perhaps a waterfall. As it progresses it is as if I've moved to the oceanside at middday - warm sand, stones, driftwood. Always fresh, elegant, and mentally uplifting. I love this fragrance.
