Quasar by J del Pozo
One of the most interesting marine scent (and I don't even like marine scent to start with) anchored by a delightful banana note. Not the whiff of a fresh peeled banana but the oven goodness of a well-baked banana cake. I never knew banana can smell so sexy. This is another under-rated gem.

A Classical Dry Woods fragrance featuring "a heady mix of
spicy essential oils, including bergamot, lime, peppermint, rose,
clove, bay, frankincense, tobacco, and vetiver."
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

L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme
Béatrice Piquet, Sylvaine Delacourte
Top Note: Lemon, Bergamot, Badian Crystals, Pepper, Elemi
Middle Note: Indian Jasmine Petal, Mysore Sandalwood, Lapsang Tea, Bitter Cocoa Bean
Base Note: Hibiscus Seeds, Patchouli
Woody, spicy, slightly floral, and gourmand all at once, this is an unusual scent. The top is citrus, spice and resin; the heart, white floral-sandalwood accord on a tea and chocolate gourmand center; and the base, with patchouli and the malvaceous seeds of hibiscus, gives an intriguing slant of depth and provides fixation anchoring the whole. This produces an overall feeling of warmth and woodiness as well as a touch of resinous earthiness, both of which enhance the mildly floral central gourmand theme. Very nice for day or evening social occasions, it radiates the right amount of warmth and inviting coziness to set one's companions at ease.

Japon Noir notes: Bergamot, spices, purple patchouli, porto noir, night blooming jasmine, leather, amber, vetiver.
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

unico grande amore.
First full day of science conference here in beautiful Santa Fe. I am wearing:
Serge Lutens Cedre
Serge Lutens must have run out of Bois names and just wanted to cut to the chase and therefore Christopher Sheldrake created Cedre in 2005. Because the Serge Lutens line has been so creative and prodigious in their use of cedar, and my appreciation of it as a note, I was looking forward to a scent named simple Cedre. Imagine my surprise when after spraying it on, the top is full of cloves and cinnamon. This is a spicy beginning but where is the cedar? Must be in the heart. There I get tuberose to begin followed by a really nice honeyed amber. The tuberose is really tightly controlled by the amber and never gets to a level of full frontal floral that can be off-putting in a tuberose forward scent. Wait what did I say? Tuberose forward? Where is the cedar? Wait there it is almost 45 minutes after applying this the cedar arrives but it is incredibly subtle and subdued. The tuberose and amber are much more prominent on my skin. The base is a beautiful musk, subtly animalic, which again takes the lead but at least the titular cedar sticks around. This is a beautiful fragrance but it does not participate in truth in advertising rules in its name. Cedre? Only for a short while and it certainly isn't the center of this one. I'm not sure what I would have called this but certainly not Cedre.
Have a Merry Monday everyone.
