Eau de Lalique
Top Notes: Mandarin, Black Pepper, Cardamom, Citron, Bergamot, Dill
Middle Notes: Freesia, Hibiscus, Cinnamon
Base Notes: Amyris Wood, Sandalwood, Benzoin, White Musk, Guaiac Wood
A bright, floral eau de cologne style fragrance with woody-musky base notes and a novel green note, dill. On me one of the most refreshing and novel EdC-style scents I've come across in a long time. This is especially good in warm weather, and always produces an up-beat, light-hearted mood in me. This lasts a long time and the drydown is very smooth. Also, reapplication is not a problem, as it can be with many eaux de cologne, which are not friendly to perspiration and require soap and water before reapplication. Not so with this one; reapplying is worry-free.

Yr good bud,

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..."

A delicious creamy buttery gardenia scent that is quite addictive. The musk is not heavy at all and settle quite amicably on my skin. Good sillage and longevity. I think this Essence is a keeper.

Feeling the need for green, the green fairy that is:
L'Artisan Fou D'Absinthe
Absinthe made its re-entry into popular culture via Baz Luhrman's "green fairy" swigging heroines and heroes in his 2001 movie "Moulin Rouge". Absinthe or more correctly the wormwood used to make absinthe seemed to re-enter the perfume world not too long afterward. In 2006 Olivia Gicobetti created Fou D'Absinthe and has, for me, done the best job of capturing the essence of absinthe as a scent to date. One of the notes listed for Fou D'Absinthe is frozen alcohol and the top of this scent gives off that icy feel of something that is vaporous as well and with the wormwood in place right from the beginning this evokes a frozen alcoholic drink. It is unique and marvelous. The heart is full of a peppery kick reminiscent of the burn in your throat as the absinthe slides down your esophagus. The pepper is the most prominent of the spices but there is also a nice slug of clove there as well. Finally the shot of absinthe has settled in your stomach and you get that warm feeling all over. In the base a mix of pine and patchouli play with the wormwood to add some warmth to the end of this one. The use of wormwood and the pine make for an astringency to go along with the warmth that the patchouli brings to the base of this. Fou D'Absinthe is a scent which evokes one of Satine's lines from "Moulin Rouge" as she asks one of her compatriots about a man and wonders whether to attract him she should be "bright and bubbly" or a "smoldering temptress". Mme. Giacobetti has created in Fou D'Absinthe a scent that starts off bright and bubbly only to finish as a smoldering temptress.
Have a Magnifique Monday everyone.

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
