    The Different Company
    Un Parfum de Charmes et Feuilles
    (2006)
    Céline Ellena

    Notes: Marjoram, Peppermint, Sage, Serpolet (Wild Thyme), Jasmine Sambac, Grapefruit, Clementine, Patchouli
    A very nice blend of herbs and jasmine together with the deep, woody note of patchouli. This is very, very green — deeply and intensely so. The herb bouquet is splendid, especially with the citrus notes. The choice of the somewhat woody-camphoraceous Arabian (or night-blooming) jasmine (Jasminum sambac) for the floral note in this scent is also particularly suited for use with the sharp herbal notes, because this species of jasmine is also spicier, muskier, and more penetrating than either Jasminum officinale or the grandiflorum varieties. The drydown with patchouli in the base also marries well with that standout floral note, and when it mellows, it smooths out beautifully. This is a definite keeper.

    Monsieur Rochas by Rochas


    The vintage eau de cologne is a class act. Superbly refined, it's a classic fougere scent from a by-gone era and it just smells so special. This will go well with a jacket and tie for a formal occasion. I love Monsieur Rochas very much and my hat off to a well-done classic.

    The sun came by for a visit yesterday afternoon but has now left for whatever part of the country its been shining on for the last week. I needed something citrus, something interesting, and something new:

    Hermes Eau de Pamplemousse Rose

    Jean-Claude Ellena has been blazing quite a trail at Hermes since taking over as House Nose. The extension of the Jardins and the creation of the Hermessence lines have been mostly triumphant to me. It was with a lot of interest that I approached Eau de Pamplemousse Rose. In 2009 Ellena wanted to add a couple of new editions of eau de colognes to Hermes' 1979 classic Eau D'Orange Vert which was created by Francoise Caron. Ellena had stated he wanted to offer new interpretations of Kolnisch Wasser. This collection of Eau D'Orange Vert, Eau de Gentiane Blanche, and Eau de Pamplemousse Rose are to be called collectively "Les Colognes Hermes". How would Ellena's minimalist style mix with an eau de cologne style meant to be light and airy? The top of this starts with the titular grapefruit and it is so realistic that it is a transcendent note. It is a pity that it lasts for what seems like only a few minutes. As the grapefruit disappears the more familiar and longer lasting citrus note of orange takes its place. Because that grapefruit note is so beautifully realistic the orange is almost a disappointment to my nose. Thankfully the heart of this picks up the slack. It is here that a very sheer rose note appears along with a green note I couldn't quite place but also left to be sheer and it felt like I was smelling my rose garden after mowing the lawn. According to the note list the green is coming from a new note called rhubofix which is supposed to impart "a zesty freshness and unique green rhubarb effect". I definitely get the green effect and it does seem to keep the zestiness of the citrus at the top. The base is all vetiver and it is the right compliment to the citrus and the rose and it is also kept on the light side. Ellena has a love for the light and I find Eau de Pamplemousse Rose to be closer in style to the two early Jardins, Mediterranee and Sur Le Nil than to Eau D'orange Vert. On the other hand I do find Eau de Pamplemousse Rose to be a quite modern take on Eau de Cologne and Ellena has shown once again that he is attempting to keep Hermes both commercial and artistic. So far, so good.

    Have a Torrid Thursday everyone.
