    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 heavy contender at the start, this is best after it has a chance to wear down a bit. Definitely not one to overapply, either. Having given those caveats, however, this is a remarkable scent. It speaks confidence and power, and after having been retired for a time, it has earned enough recognition to return, only slightly chastened, as l'Âme d'un Héros. Citrus and herbal to start, the original then goes into a heart of strong herbal, green, and spice notes slightly relieved by ylang-ylang; woods, leather, and resins in the base complete this green-herbal chypre. Not for the faint of heart or for casual wear, this must be kept back for greater needs and occasions. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but for the soul of the valiant and questing knight, it's as necessary as a coat of chain mail.

    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..."

    Frederic Malle L'Eau D'Hiver

    For me, this is Ellena's masterpiece. From the little fanfare of bergamot, at the start, which ushers you into the sheer floral heart of iris, carnation and jasmine before floating into one of my favorite bases of honey, caramel and musk. The base makes this sound like a gourmand but it is so far from that kind of scent. This is the perfect storm of Ellena's minimalism leading to rich complex accords.

    Have a Terrific Tuesday everyone.

    I'm trying to keep people away from my office today, so I applied 4-5 sprays. I can hardly breathe right now (if you own this you know how fierce the topnotes are), but I'm looking forward to swimming in the gorgeous leather/vanilla drydown during a 4 hour drive I'm taking later today.
