Uomo by Carthusia (first time from a sample - thanks Ruggles)
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.
Happy Birthday CologneJunkie and NeoTY26!

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."I had to test Incense Rosé a few times before I could begin to wrap my brain around it."
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.

Guerlain's JICKY, Eau de Parfum
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..."
