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 recent acquisition, and recently worn, but I feel I must wear it again because I enjoyed it so much the last time I wore it. It's a lovely fougère, deeper and more complex than many, yet lighter also, in that it puts the emphasis on citrus and lavender. These two key notes, however, are so skillfully supported and so securely anchored by the heart and base notes as to produce an extraordinary and long-lasting scent with a discreet but noticeable sillage. Hooray for Ungaro!

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..."

Still in the new phase I picked up a sample generously sent to me by bbBD:
Christian Dior Bois D'Argent
Due to Annick Menardo's influence on this one and on two other of my favorite quirky scents, Le Labo Patchouli 24 and Bvlgari Black I was excited to receive a sample of this. This is so unlike those scents it is surprising. This is all refined and smooth, no rough edges, no quirkiness present just an expertly blended combination of notes. This starts off with a sweet incense on me before progressing into a sheer mix of leather and patchouli in the heart. where in most scents this combination would be overpowering here they are much lighter and allow for the iris note to be the dominant note in the middle of it all making this just beautiful on me. The light hand continues into the base as a mix of honey and vanilla wrap this up in fine style. Other reviewers have mentioned the similarity to Dior Homme but I think that is mainly because both have such identifiable iris notes to them. Beyond that congruency I think these are pretty different and I think I prefer this over Dior Homme because I believe it has more complexity to it.
Have a Happy Monday everyone.
