    Hermès
    Calèche Fleurs de Méditerranée
    (2003)
    Jean-Claude Ellena

    Notes: Moroccan Mimosa, Turkish Rose, Egyptian Jasmine, Beeswax Absolute, Heliotrope

    A limited edition, this is a beautiful composition based on mimosa, rose, and jasmine with beeswax absolute and heliotrope. The mimosa's floral note is slightly green, lending a bit of freshness to this rather rich fragrance; the beeswax gives depth and a gently animalic touch, while the heliotrope contributes the gourmand redolence of almonds and cherry pie. It is definitely an opus of elegance and style, deep and reassuring. Ellena's genius for making a great deal of a minimal set of ingredients is amply evident here.

    Chanel's Sycomore ... Layered 2/3 .... to 1/3 SCP's Vanille-Mocha.

    It works !... well it does to my nose anyway ! ... It transforms up the Sycomore nicely, for a change. The vetiver-vanilla-coffee/choc is a good combination, I think !.

    Mitsouko by Guerlain


    I love the vintage edc of Mitsouko very much and so I was very curious to try the modern edt. It's still as lovely as ever, the loveliest peace note in a perfume. And one of the greatest perfume ever made. Strangely, its the edc which has more potency over the modern frag. Now, the parfum awaits me.

    Creed Silver Mountain Water

    I am anticipating that this fragrance, although somewhat cliché to some, might make an excellent all around play in my wardrobe. It is very refreshing, exudes a certain sense of Creed refinement, and would work quite well in the hot Houston summers or for that matter, play out very well in more formal occasions.

    I certainly hope that this fragrance demonstrates the longevity that other Creeds sometimes do not.

    Everyone have a Great Sunday!

    What an odd fragrance...it does that sweet/warm back-and-forth thing so nicely. It's slightly tart and then sweetens in an acidic way. I love it.

    No problem, buddy! That's awesome stuff, ain't it? And I'm digging the Tauer you sent me. I am STILL trying to get my head around Incense Rosé. And you know something funny? Just after I wrote that, I looked it up in the directory to see if I needed an accent on the final "e". And here is foetidus' thumbs-up review - the first sentence:

    "I had to test Incense Rosé a few times before I could begin to wrap my brain around it."
    That's the part of niche that I like - the way that some people who are doing it can drop a scent in strange territory that just makes me go "WTF? Is this crap or genius? Why can I not stop sniffing this stuff?" Neil Morris Rumi was like that for me.

    Have a great day!

    Today it is another hot day and I wanted something with heft so courtesy of bbBD I am in:

    Parfumerie Generale Cuir D'Iris

    Pierre Guillaume has really done an incredible job of creating a number of different scents in his Parfumerie Generale line. Over the course of these creations it is clear that he has a particularly deft hand with gourmand notes and with leather. In the 2008 release Cuir D'Iris, part of the Private Collection, he perhaps creates his most intense leather to date. Right from the top you get leather and it is the leather of a fine leather arm chair. At first that seems to be all that is there but then ever so subtly you smell the vase holding the bouquet of irises that is next to this armchair. This is a powdery iris which is delicateley added around the edges of the leather. I'm not sure I would've placed iris in the name of this scent for all of the heft it brings and the length of its stay. The heart of this mixes a little chocolate in with the leather this is the cocoa powder version of chocolate which comes across less rich and compliments the leather center. The base is all amber and leather and this is exquisite in its depth as the rawer edges of amber rough up the leather and make for an excellent ending to this scent. If you're an iris lover and not a leather lover I wouldn't bother with this one because the iris is really only there for a short time. If you are a leather lover this is a must try because it is one of the finest pure leathers out there, to me.

    Have a Sultry Sunday everyone.
