Czech & Speake No. 88
by Czech & Speake
my favorite rose and number three scent overall
Top notes: Bergamot
Middle notes: Rose, Jasmin, Clove, Geranium
Base notes: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Galbanum
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
Rive Gauche pour Homme Intense by Yves Saint Laurent
A classic barber-shop scent of immense appeal. Intensely good.

Eau de Lotus Bleu
Top Notes: Mandarin, Bergamot, Neroli, Orange
Middle Notes: Blue Lotus, Rose, Orange Blossom
Base Notes: Musk, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Incense, Vanilla
A good, summery scent with bright, crisp citrus in the top, pretty florals in the middle (including the unusual blue lotus note), and a smooth, oriental base. This is a good fresh scent that is acceptably circumspect for a man to wear discreetly. It's well and truly uplifting and energizing, redolent of sunshine and gardens and pleasant company in a relaxed and warm setting. Sweet without being cloying, it soothes and calms and sets the heart at ease.

Yr good bud,

Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.

For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm. - Vladimir Nabokov

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..."
